Meet Our Maker: Sanvar Oberoi

Sanvar is a first-generation agricultural entrepreneur who is re-instating a super crop long marginalised for its association with cannabis – industrial hemp.

Bombay Hemp Company (BOHECO) works with the government, local industry and farmers to manufacture innovative agro-products for pharmaceutical, construction, energy, paper, food, textiles, autombobiles, oil and cordage, for a pan-Indian movement in poverty alleviation and rural development.

Sanvar is pursuing his PhD in Business Economics, while working to reform agriculture and boost its role in the economy.

He also co-founded the Thincquisitive Foundation, and enjoys giving walking tours of Bombay.
