Gorakhpur’s Nimit Singh became well-known across the country today by starting a private label beekeeping and honey production company. On Sunday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi discussed the matter of Nimit, who took his startup to new heights by taking subsidized loans from the Chief Minister’s Self-Employment Scheme, on the Mann Ki Baat programme. Prime Minister Modi openly praised his startup and cited him as an example for the youth.

Nimit Singh hails from Gorakhpur’s Divya Nagar colony and is currently engaged in the business of honey beekeeping in Barabanki and various ranges of beekeeper brands. He did his B.Tech in Mechanical Commerce from Annamalai University in 2014. After studying, he decided to start his own company instead of doing a job. His father, Dr. KN Singh, advised him to strive in the field of beekeeping.

To get this basic knowledge before starting the startup, he visited half a dozen states including Sikkim, Kolkata, Jharkhand and saw and learned the method of beekeeping. During this time he also completed his MBA from the distance education system. In 2016 he started beekeeping with 50 boxes. Then he decided to market his finished honey on his own. He himself used to go to different public places in Lucknow and sell the honey produced by himself under his own brand name.

Expansion to the launch given by the Chief Minister’s Self-Employment Plan in 2018
Seeing the overwhelming response from people for his brand of pure honey, Nimit decided to expand the startup in 2018. The Chief Minister’s self-employment scheme was helpful in his decision. With this, by taking a loan of Rs 10 lakh, he gave an industrial look to honey production by installing machines and other equipment. Its beekeeping base is Barabanki. To take its brand to greater heights, it has also set up a laboratory in Chinhat, Lucknow. The taste, quality and medicinal properties of honey are regularly tested in the laboratory. He is said to have paid the money taken from the Chief Counsel’s Self Employed Plan. Now, to further expand the business, a loan of Rs 15 lakh has been taken from the Prime Minister’s Food Micro-Processing Enterprises Scheme. Nimit Singh not only keeps a bee, but also continuously researches the honey produced from it. Through his research, he has introduced to the market eight types of honey with different flowers, fruits, taste and medicinal properties. Citing his research, Nimit Singh says that where there are crops of mustard, litchi, jamun, eucalyptus, neem, acacia, sesame, basil, etc., honey of similar aroma, taste, color and medicinal properties is prepared. .

According to the element of fruit or flower from which the honey is made, they have given their name to the market. Not only that, instead of turning to any company, he himself has created a marketing platform for the Beekeeper brand market.

115 families connected with employment with honey wax
Nimit not only prepared many flavors of honey, but also made candles, toys, soaps, etc. from its remaining wax. In Barabanki’s Chainpurwa village, police officer Arvind Chaturvedi’s initiative has connected 115 such families to livelihoods by training them to make wax products, which were once infamous for the liquor and drug trade .

A small effort from Nimit’s startup has today taken the form of a turnover of two crore rupees per annum. 700 people are getting jobs in their network from honey production to marketing. Not only this, apart from different districts of Uttar Pradesh, unemployed youths in Punjab, Tamil Nadu, Bengal, Uttarakhand and Rajasthan were trained and motivated to sell honey under their own brand.

So far, he has associated more than five hundred farmers with this work. He does not bear any cost for these seven days of training etc., he only motivates them to sell honey under their own brand.

Nimit also inspires youth and farmers for self-employment. He explains that under the Horticulture Mission, the state government gives a subsidy of 40 per cent on the expenditure of Rs 2.20 lakh for setting up a unit (50 boxes).
