COVID-19 is an infectious disease caused by a newly discovered coronavirus. We can see the scenario of this coronavirus is that mostly the child, older and patient people who have not strong immune power, they have been quickly attacked and death by this coronavirus. However, eating a healthy balanced diet is still essential for good health and normal immune function. Fruits and vegetables are among the most important foods for supplying the vitamins, minerals and fibres for our body to get normal immune function and healthy. Therefore, we should eat a variety of fruits and vegetables to get different combinations of various vitamins, minerals and fibres, which can boost our immune system.
Even in an agricultural country like Nepal, there is a shortage of fruits that such people need for daily consumption. Due to which a large amount of money has gone abroad to import fruits in large quantities every year. To solve this problem, we have managed more than 100 Bighas of land for farming more than 15 varieties of fruits in Chitwan Madi, Dang, Nepalgunj and other places in Nepal. At the beginning of year 2021, we are starting the fruits farming. This business will make Nepal self-sufficient in fruits production soon and the people of Nepal to stay healthy by consuming fruits at affordable prices. On the other hand, it is hoped that because of our business the per capita income will be increased by providing employment opportunities and the nation will be developed economically by saving huge sums of money from fruits import.
MADI Agro-Tourism Project
The goal of our MADI Agro-Tourism Project is to create replicable-sustainable examples of supporting nature conservation and save agro-biodiversity through awareness building and generating-supporting sustainable economic cycles such as organic farming and eco-agro tourism. This is our first large-scale multiple projects that have been started in over 1,000 Ropani lands on Madi Municipality.
The plantation of more than 15 types of fruits like lemon, papaya, mango, guava, orange, pomegranate, pineapple, coconut, lychee, banana and sandalwood have been started. Similarly, fish, pig, honey bee, pheasant bird (Kalij), deer (Kasturi Mriga) and other livestock farming will be started soon on this site. Also, we will build a modern Idea Hotel under this project.
The main objective of this project is to help in the economic development of the country and the people by protecting the life cycle between human beings, flora and fauna in nature. The natural grains and grass leaves produced under this project are fed to cattle and fish. Again, those cattle’s compost manure and garbage from the hotel will be used to produce organic grains, fruits and vegetables. In this way, guests from internal and abroad will be entertained at the modern luxury Idea Hotel by those organic food items produced from that natural life cycle.
In this beautiful natural environment like a haven, Guests can enjoy the hospitality of our modern luxury hotel. They can visit our Idea project and Sauraha in Chitwan to explore the flora and fauna. They can also enjoy jungle safaris and hiking. Those activities and valuable hospitality will help economically and tourism sector of the nation. On the other hand, this project will help the nation for self-sufficient in agricultural commodities and people can consume those organic products at a reasonable price.

Fish is a high-protein, low-fat food that provides a range of health benefits. White-fleshed fish, in particular, is lower in fat than any other source of animal protein, and oily fish are high in omega-3 fatty acids, or the “good” fats. Since the human body can’t make significant amounts of these essential nutrients, fish are an important part of the diet. Also, fish are low in the “bad” fats commonly found in red meat, called omega-6 fatty acids. Omega-3 helps maintain cardiovascular health by playing a role in the regulation of blood clotting and vessel constriction and also Omega-3 may play a beneficial role in cardiac arrhythmia (irregular heartbeat), reducing depression and halting mental decline in older people.
We know that Nepal is a landlocked country, where seafood is not easily available. According to a survey conducted by “Fisheries Association, Chitwan” with fish importers in 2019, 10957.3 metric tons of different species of fish were imported to Nepal from different regions. However, the development of fisheries in Nepal has not been as expected. But due to the abundant availability of water resources, Nepal is a potential fishing country. Therefore, our company aims to produce quality fish in a modern way and sell it fresh at reasonable prices. More than 500 bigha of land has been managed in Chitwan Madi, Nepalgunj and other places in Nepal for this fish farming production. Similarly, we aim to make Nepal self-sufficient in fish production by expanding this business to other locations soon. Due to which, people in Nepal can easily consume fish and get the necessary elements for health from fish.
WHITE SANDALWOOD PLANTATION
White Sandalwood is an evergreen tree. The oil from the wood and the wood are used as medicine. Don’t confuse white sandalwood with red sandalwood. White sandalwood is used for treating the common cold, cough, bronchitis, fever, and sore mouth and throat. It is also used to treat urinary tract infections (UTIs), liver disease, gallbladder problems, heatstroke, gonorrhea, headache, and conditions of the heart and blood vessels (cardiovascular disease). As long as in food and beverages, white sandalwood is used as a flavoring. In manufacturing, white sandalwood oil is used as a fragrance in soaps, cosmetics, and perfumes.
We have started the cultivation of such important white sandalwood in Chitwan Madi, Nepal. Also Our “Grow a tree, prosper a family” project will be introduced to local farmers nationwide. Farmers will buy seedlings of white sandalwood from IDEA. They receive plantation training of seedlings at the 1st year and IDEA guarantees to buy back the mature wood from the farmers. In this way, the demand for white sandalwood will be met and its greenery will make environment fresh and the creation of employment will lead to economic development of the country.
Meat and poultry are great sources of protein. They also provide lots of other nutrients our body needs, like iodine, iron, zinc, vitamins (especially B12) and essential fatty acids. So it’s a good idea to eat meat and poultry every week as part of our balanced diet. But still meat and poultry are not enough available in many country on the world such as Nepal import lots of poultry and meat from abroad every year.
We have started a livestock farm to meet the growing demand for that meat and poultry in Chitwan Madi of Nepal. We have started animal farming such as pig, pheasant bird (Kalij), musk deer (Kasturi Mriga). Similarly, we will operate this kind of livestock projects in other places as well. So that people can easily consume meat and poultry. On the other hand, this project will help the nation for self-sufficient in agricultural commodities and people can consume those organic products at a reasonable price. Also, the creation of employment in the country will lead to the economic development of the nation.
