Ajay has always been passionate about two things in life, technology and food. In 2011, he left a settled IT job and started his own software company. After selling that company in 2016, he shifted his professional attention to food. Up to that point, he had been happy savoring different cuisines in Goa, a tourist destination offering a wide variety of cuisines – but over time, he noticed deterioration in the quality of veggies and other ingredients being used to make his favorite delicacies. Additionally, he had lost a loved one to cancer some years back, and cancer being a lifestyle-related disease, he began to ponder what he might do about this problem.
He researched how to grow better, healthier food without pesticides using fewer resources compared to conventional farming, and that’s how the seeds of Letcetra Agritech - India’s first vertical hydroponics farm - were sown. He founded Letcetra out of a passionate commitment to developing innovative and sustainable products/solutions to benefit farmers, consumers, and our planet. Ajay firmly believes he must be a harbinger of the change he wishes to see, and through hydroponics farming, he has driven change in last two years, which is quite evident from the wide media coverage.
Ajay plans to continue building the agricultural revolution across India and other developing countries. To this end, he has meticulously built a team of technologists and experts with whom he is slowly expanding the reach of innovative farming practices to deliver consistent and reliable yields of healthier and more nutritious vegetables.
