Dr Dinesh Patel doesn’t just practice medicine. He produces high shelf life products such as spray dried fruit powders, jams, flours, puffed rice etc under the brand Ecovitals in his 125-acre organic farm on the outskirts of Ahmedabad. “Though we have been farming here for decades, we started Ecovitals a few years ago. Our products called Power Packed Powders made from spray dried fruits are our most lucrative ones,” says the 60-year-old cardiologist. “This year we introduced mulberry jam, packaged oats and basmati rice.”
