Kolkata: Dubai-based multinational UMC, engaged in providing viable and green solutions globally, has come up with a concentrated liquid solution, called Ecorich VFW with the property of washing chemical, pesticides and insecticides from the surface of tea leaf and other vegetables.

Imagine a situation, where one can use as much pesticide and insecticide as is required and then once the fruit, vegetable or leaf is harvested, remove most of the objectionable stuff on the surface completely using a non-toxic and completely safe water based product. Sounds hyperbole? –Not really. Ecorich VFW actually does that, claimed Vinay Paranjpe, director, UMC.
