Nepal Warehousing Company was established under the Company Act, 2063 of Nepal to cater to the warehousing needs of the farmers, traders, millers, and businessmen who deal in the trade of grains for their commercial and industrial purposes. These actors more often face post-harvest losses, degraded product quality for further use, and most frequently face problems of keeping grains in a healthy environment for a long time. In order to keep the quality of grains stored intact for a long time, the Nepal Warehousing Company Ltd has brought the solution by installing high-quality silos of 55,000 MT capacity at three different places in province number 1, province number 2, and in Lumbini province.
