"Building a Sustainable Future: Affordable Mineral-Based Farming for Optimal Crop Yield"
"Water and Power Conservation Measures to Reduce Pollution in Domestic and Commercial Establishments"
Khuba Group is a family business that was founded by Late Shri.Gurappa.D.Khuba in 1890 as a trading house for food grains, pulses, steel, and other commodities. The business was then passed down to his son Late Shri Basawanappa G. Khuba, who continued to expand and diversify the traditional business. Later on, Late Shri.Somanathappa.B.Khuba ventured into mining and industrial production to manufacture catalysts, starting with the first unit called Korvi Fuller Earth Processing Industry in 1956, and a second unit in the name of Korvi Activated Earth in 1989.
Now in its fourth generation, Shri.Rajendra.S.Khuba has taken on the mantle to further expand the legacy of the business. He established a 100% EOU unit for new generation catalyst called Korvi Activate Minerals in 2002. He has also patented and started manufacturing water-saving products for domestic and commercial establishments in 2020.
All the units of the Khuba Group are equipped with state-of-the-art technology backed by a full-fledged research and development division to manufacture quality consistent catalysts for diverse applications in the field of Petrochemicals, Edible Oils, Non-Edible Oils, and Waxes, among others.
The fifth generation of the Khuba family, Mr. Rishikesh R. Khuba, has initiated the manufacture of mineral-based natural / organic soil conditioners, soil boosters, growth promoters, and natural pest repellent and controllers as a direct replacement for chemical / synthetic-based fertilizers and pesticides. These are cost-effective solutions to meet the growing demand for food while also contributing to the betterment of the environment.
Aside from their core business, the Khuba family is also well-established in real estate development and leasing spaces to MNCs, banks, and housing. In 2016, they created a centrally air-conditioned community hall called Khuba Kalyan Mantap to cater to the cultural needs of the local community.
Dr. Vilasvathi S. Khuba, Rajendra's mother, has been honored with doctorate twice and by various institutions for her philanthropic work towards the upliftment of humanity.
The Khuba Group presents Rethink, an initiative aimed at saving water, power, and the environment while enhancing organic food growth for long-term human health and sustainability. With their commitment to innovation and excellence, the Khuba Group continues to make a positive impact in their industry and the community they serve.
It is clear that the water and food crisis is a pressing issue that needs to be addressed urgently. While human-centered design has its place in creating cost-effective solutions, it may not be enough to solve the world's biggest problems.
To tackle the problem of water scarcity and pollution, it is necessary to adopt a sustainable approach that focuses on the full life cycle of water. This includes using fresh water frugally, reusing grey water, and reducing water, power, and pollution.
Similarly, to address the issue of food shortage, it is essential to develop organic and eco-friendly soil conditioners and pest repellents that enrich the soil with flora and fauna without compromising the ecology or human health. This can help farmers become self-sufficient and minimize their dependence on external inputs.
It is vital to adopt a comprehensive approach that addresses all facets of a problem to achieve sustainable solutions. By taking small steps across all areas, we can make progress towards creating a better future for all.
