Business and Management Field Trip
The Business and Management field trip for grade 11 and 12 was organized on 10th sept,2011 to an oil factory at Timapur located at 40 kilometers from the city of Hyderabad, Andhra Pradesh. Healthy Heart Private Limited is an oil factory located on a large area of six acres of land. The factory consists of two plants-Sunflower oil and Rice bran oil. The plants are completely automated from the process of extraction of the sunflower and rice bran seeds to packing the refined oil into poly packs, jars and tin containers.
Students gathered information about the details of the production process involved, Marketing strategy followed and, human resource employed by the unit. The main attraction of the factory was the Research and Development department where the oil after every stage of processing was brought for purity checking. This department was also involved in constant research on improving the purity of both sunflower and rice bran oil.
It was a wonderful learning experience for the students as they could collect information and relate to their syllabus areas of production, marketing and human resource.
