VSR Enpro is the brainchild of Satish Kumar, a passionate engineer and an avid entrepreneur who comes with robust experience in the food processing landscape. His association with top-notch brands like Eveready, Unilever, ITC Ashirwad Spices, and Everest Masalas encouraged him to foster a different dimension to the Indian spices market. With sheer experience and knowledge, he wanted to establish a better system that could help and support industry to tackle all needs of growing global market. On this bigger vision, he conceptualized VSR Enpro (Vital. Simple. Reliable) consultancy firm in the year 2012.

The company has carved its niche in the spice processing market. It narrowed down the focus to the specific spices segment that was nascent and demanded reliable services.

international standard support and expectations. He mentions, "The company starts right from ideation and ends with commissioning of the system with end-product - concept of commissioning."

He adds, "Service providers are in abundance but this will make the clients run to different service providers for each need. But we offer everything under one roof and value the time of clients. To avoid them running around different people, we give them a complete experience to add value to their business."
