The first phase of the Shubh Mint Project (Shubh Mint 1.0) was co-created by Tanager and Mars Wrigley (Mars) and implemented by Tanager. Shubh Mint 1.0 was a five-year program (2017-2021), and the goal was to ensure the profitability of mint for smallholder farmers and the sustainability of the Indian natural mint oil industry. The first phase worked with 22,000 farmers to increase yields by 50% and double farmer incomes. For the second phase of the program (Shubh Mint 2.0), the program looks to build off successes and lessons learned from the first phase and create a scaled, inclusive, and traceable crude mint oil supply chain. Shubh Mint 2.0 has three major objectives, listed below:
Objective 1: Maintain Mint Farmer Income Gains from Shubh Mint 1.0
Objective 2: Create an inclusive sustainable supply chain through the creation of a two-tiered farmer producer company system
Objective 3: Unlock Opportunities for Women
