Mother Herbs has 10 acres of land in the region of Northern India, which comprises of 2 acres of warehouse space.
We employee more than 150 permanent and 400 temporary skilled and
non-skilled labor and a staff of 20-25 professionals who are highly
proficient and qualified. Most of the pure herbs (spice herbs, medicinal herbs, cosmetic herbs) in our herbs list are wild
crafted from all over India, while few are cultivated by own using advance
techniques of farming. We have 1000 metric tones of closed storage space to
avoid the products from any kind of unusual atmospheric conditions.
Around 200 metric tone's of open shades in the close proximity of the
productive field that assist in timely storing of the product after
harvesting. These provide the facility of shade drying of 5000 kilograms of
product per day to prevent (or inhibit) microorganisms and hence preserve
the food and to reduce the weight and bulk of food for cheaper transport and
drying can be done in the sunlight or in shade. The shade drying takes
longer but is supposed to be a very efficient method of drying because it
does seem to preserve more of the herb's aroma, nutritional content and
freshness that determine the quality of Herbs. They need to be stored away
from direct sunlight or heat as these rob the herbs of their potency. When
the herb is dried (whether root, leaves, stem or flower) they should be
placed into a dry container.
The amount of time that they need to dry will vary according to the plant
and the conditions. At Mother Herbs we do shade drying in a manner that
there is no infestation or no direct sunlight. This insures that all
essential ingredients are retained in the products. In spite of having very
large area of storage we are able to maintain necessary hygienic conditions
and avoid the infestation of herbs from any harmful microorganisms.
Our basic infrastructure comprises of the following units and machinery.
- Quality grading of natural produce not only facilitates
its marketing but also helps sellers and buyers to choose a particular
commodity. We take special measures to ensure that in a given lot the
produce is of a uniform quality and specification according to set
standards. By this way we ensure that the right price is set for different
qualities. It proves to be very beneficial for us at the time of sale.
» Blending Unit - used for size reduction and mixing the plant
material until the material is of the finest quality and gets properly
mixed. Provides excellent mixing consistency for powders, granules and some
slurry. Our blending range is provided with reverse spiral, double ribbon
agitator - 6 or 8 ribbons that delivers uniform, high capacity blended
product. This ensures the superior quality product in the market.
used for maintaining the proper size of the
product by breaking up the lumps and eliminating the unusual size of the
product. Our pulverized range consists of beaters that are harder and fully
mechanized. Pulveriser grinds almost all-herbal products, fruits, herb
roots, leaves, bark of tree and is found to be suitable for both wet pulpy
and dry crushing
- It is used for size classification of materials that
have been subjected to other means of size reduction. By this way we do the
separation of a mixture of various-sized particles, either dry or suspended
in a liquid, into two or more portions, by passing through screens of
specified mesh sizes. Sieving ensures that the product is of uniform size
and removes the unwanted material from the final product.
AFFS (Automated Form Fill and Sealer)
- Commonly called as Weighing
Automated Sealer, having large metal body and can absorb more heat, this
unit has an additional timer to hold down the arm for cooling and
eliminating manual holding down of the sealing arm. Sealing machine of this
type also have wider sealing ribbons and giving rise to a wider seal width
that saves the time and labor for packaging and fasten the process of
» Washing and Cleaning Machine
-The removal of soil and stones
can be done by handpicking or by sieving. Some types of produce can be
washed, brushed, or cleaned with a soft cloth. Cleaning produce by hand
polishing or machine brushing can remove light soil contamination or dust
from produce, especially fruit. This is done with care since damage to the
skin of fresh produce will promote early decay.
is required to clean produce, which has acquired latex stains from injuries
caused during harvesting. We examine the product very well and washing is
carried out only when absolutely essential. We use only clean, running water
for washing. At Mother Herbs washing of produce in recalculated or stagnant
water is avoided because it can quickly become heavily contaminated with
decay organisms, leading to heavy rotting of the washed produce.
When washing is done the produce are spread out in a single layer on raised
racks of mesh or slats, in the shade and exposed to good ventilation to aid
We have automated washing and cleaning assembly line that Operate to wash
or clean products to remove impurities and unnecessary material.
We have unlimited access to underground water which is in plenty in our
area. We endeavor to do rain water harvesting in years to come to save this
invaluable water resource.
» Weighing Machine
- Weighing is very essential and integral
part of the production and operation processes in most of the industries.
The packaging system continually monitors its accuracy using trend feedback
from the check weighed and uses that information to automatically regulate
up-line machinery. The weighing accuracy provides increased packet weight
accuracy and minimal give away. Real-time production information made
available on computers makes it easy to manage and control production
» Taping Machine
- can do both horizontal and vertical banding.
Successful development and manufacture of this machine has completely
changed the current traditional method of binding finished packed product
clumsily and slowly by hand and realized binding product full-automatically
and quickly with paper tape. With such characteristics as easy operation,
artistic and firm binding, high efficiency and low cost it has got wide
applications in packaging in Mother Herbs.
We have fully automated strapping machine,
which has high-speed strapping (2.2 seconds per strapping cycle, 27 straps
per minute or 1620 straps per hour). It has the ability to adjust tension
level at will up to 90 kilograms or 180 bps. Features of these fully
automated strapping machines are - Easy loading and unloading comprehensive
applications, Machine standalone use or link with any factory unmanned
production/packaging system aluminum alloy casting for main machine
component and built for 24 hrs.continous operations.
