Mahesh Londhe is tackling malnutrition and nutrition deficiency by distributing millet-based healthy products to rural women and nutrient-deficient people to improve their health conditions.
Mahesh Londhe is the Founder of AgroZee Organics. After completing his post-graduate degree in Food and Nutrition at Adamas University, he worked in the field of women and child nutrition in a rural area of India and identified iron deficiency in women and adolescents girls. Mahesh then developed a multi-millet laddu for them with a combination of traditional ingredients for sweetener using the Mahua flower, which is a forest area flower. The Mahua flower has iron, zinc, calcium, and is protein-rich. Over the last three years, Mahesh has been working on millets for malnutrition and is also increasing the bioavailability of iron in millets. To date, he has impacted 5000 adolescents girls, pregnant and lactating women, and children.
