Nilo CaPure and Precious" is not only the theme of our company but also our central driving policy. If we know exactly our responsibility towards our staff and their kids, their health and their education as well as good food on a daily basis, we never have to worry about facing any labor problems. The company should respect their skills and their feelings and make them feel secure and happy. Work should not be a burden but rather a joy and a matter of pride for them. We cannot force people to work, because the work itself has to be a joy for them. “I myself have an experience of being an employee for 16 years, and I know very well what it means to be an employee" I started as an intern with 4 people in 2000 at Altai-Himalaya Nepal and was The Chief Production Manager for 140 people when I leave in 2016. It was a great experience for me (Tara)
