Since its inception in 2006, Punjab Agro Juices Limited (PAJL) is efficiently turning the huge potential of the Punjab State’s horticulture produce into healthy and invigorating products. PAJL was established by the Government of Punjab (India) in order to support small and marginal farmers by providing them with remunerative prices for their produce.
At present, PAJL has integrated two multi-fruit and vegetable processing units in the State of Punjab , located at Village Jahankhelan, Distt. Hoshiarpur and Village Alamgarh, Abohar Ganganagar Road, District Fazilka.
In addition, PAJL offers employment to several local people in the area while bringing advanced technology and state-of-the-art infrastructure to facilitate quick processing of farm harvests.
