Krishnamurthy, the founder of HoneyKart is from an agriculture based family. He did communication engineering and was offered job in Wipro Technologies as technical programmer. Bangalore was his initial work place and later was transferred to Chennai. He was awarded for his quality of his work in 2008 & was offered overseas job in 2009. But due to his interest in agriculture he quit the job & studied agriculture practices in Tamilnadu.
As a result of his study, he found beekeeping which is very importanct in agriculture, horticulture & forestry, was not practiced properly in Tamilnadu.So he took up beekeeping with Italian bees which is rarely practiced in Tamilnadu.
The first year was too difficult as he faced series of problems and was not able to solve it as the information from people and organizations which involved in beekeeping didn’t help.
To gain in-depth knowledge in beekeeping he started look for overseas beekeepers in developed countries such as United States and Canada. He imported advanced beekeeping equipments from United States. Later he implemented the advance beekeeping practices in Karur-district of Tamilnadu and succeeded at the third attempt.This was the turning point for maintaining Italian bees in Tamilnadu without the use of any drugs or chemical to treat the bees during diseases.
He found the method of maintaining bees without diseases in natural way & hence produced honey in natural way. Now he has become a scientific beekeeper in Italian beekeeping in Tamilnadu state & markets his honey through organic shop. HoneyKart was implemented with the interest of people preferring to buy honey directly from beekeepers.
