POOR NUTRITION IN YOUNG CHILDREN IS ONE OF INDIA’S MOST SERIOUS CHALLENGES.
TAKE A LOOK.
It is a really serious problem.
Millions of Indian children don’t develop proper immunity, eyesight or cognition. They suffer from anemia, weak bones, muscle atrophy, and prolonged sickness.
There was an urgent need to create nutrition that would be easily available to children in school.
And that is why we created Bickie.
Bickie = Wholesome Nutrition
Bickie is a micronutrient fortified packaged biscuit custom made to fight poor nutrition in Indian children.
It contains nutrients like oats, nuts, whey protein, fibre, multivitamins, soya, cereal and beans
So nutritiously yummy.
Bickie provides 100 percent of the RDA for iron to help children fight anaemia, 100 percent of the RDA for zinc to help combat infections and over 80 percent of the RDA for calcium to strengthen growing bones and teeth.
Bickie is additionally fortified with Vitamin B, Folic Acid, Vitamin C and enriched with whey protein concentrate.
We manufacture and package at our large scale facility outside Mumbai in Lavasa. The facility can produce up to 1 tonne of Bickie every day.
If you have a donor group, we would love to organize a tour of the facility as employee engagement or a group tour.

Saddened by the state of child malnutrition in the country, Sower of Seeds Foods International Pvt. Ltd was founded in September 2013 as a Private Limited Company in Mumbai with a vision to provide nutrition for everyone.
The company’s objectives include developing nutritious food, improving access to nutrition, improving knowledge of good nutrition and impacting farmer practices to produce nutritious food.
We aim to source raw materials from farmers directly so that they are able to receive a fair price for their produce.
Our mission with Bickie is to ensure that there would be no hungry or under-nourished child in our country. In order to accomplish this, we have set up a facility in Maharashtra to manufacture, market and distribute Bickie. The facility has a capacity of producing up to 40,000 packs of Bickie per day in addition to other baked goods.
