United against child labour

Child labour is one of the critical social issues that Advanta Seeds, along with its parent company UPL address actively. To fight child labour, we started the “United Against Child Labour” (UACL) initiative. The objective is to end all forms of child Labour in the seed supply chain and to ensure education for children.

To target the issue at its roots, we developed an awareness program for the rural communities, and engaged local governments, schools, and media to advocate the cause.


Enhancing nutrition.

Growing nutritional crops is essential to fight hunger and malnutrition. Most farmers in regions with food security challenges lack resources and knowledge to be productive and to feed their families. We look for the best solutions to improve nutritional value and provide high yielding crops.

Technology for climate change.

With changing climate smallholder farmers face new challenges that require tailored solutions. At Advanta Seeds, we aim to provide innovation and seeds technology to address the most challenging issues.

Engaging Community.

We actively engage our employees and community to create sustainability awareness and promote sustainable lifestyles. At Advanta, we listen to our employees and collect feedback from our community to understand what issues are the most pressing that we can address as a company.

Fair Labour

Agriculture is the world’s largest source of employment, often involving long hours and heavy work in challenging climates and harsh conditions. As an organization, we strive for fair labor conditions and the elimination of child labor throughout our entire supply chain network.
