In a bid to bring Palakkad Gap into the world’s purview, Athachi presents proposal before Chief

Athachi Group, a diversified business group headquartered in Palakkad, Kerala with nature close to its heart across its operations in India and the UAE, has presented a proposal to Mr. Pinarayi Vijayan, Chief Minister of Kerala, focused on highlighting the geological and ecological uniqueness of Palakkad Gap across the globe.
The proposal focuses on showcasing the salient attributes and unique features of Palakkad Gap across the world by way of a concerted campaign that will include a slew of activities centered around Athachi Farms – the bedrock of Athachi Group’s wellness and beauty products. The global campaign will be centered on the Palakkad Gap – spanning 41km and situated in the Western Ghats – which is considered one of the eight biodiversity hotspots in the world. Older than the Himalayas, many geological theories reinforce the formation of the Palakkad Gap, accentuated by its rich flora and fauna which offer a unique characteristic of their own.
