Recently a portal came up for Himachali products (www.himachalproducts.com) and I would say it is strongly required.
There is bit of controversy going on with the company behind this portal (http://cities.expressindia.com/fullstory.php?newsid=202182) but on ground, reality is we need this portal, I’d be the first one to buy few things (although registration does not work). I’d appreciate if they join hands with companies who are in this kind of work, there are so many ways to promote and sell products, the only problem we here face is sourcing. And if you have resolved this, believe me, opportunities are unlimited. We have enough Himachali admirers in west and they love pahari products. Private sector if given free hand is the best source to change people’s lives!
