    What is Producer Company Registration?

    A Producer Company was introduced in India with the Companies Act, 2013. It gives persons engaged in activities related to producing (what has been grown or produced, particularly by farming) the opportunity to form a company. A producer company can be formed by 10 or more producers (persons involved in, or in activities related to, produce or growth), two or more producer institutions or a combination of 10 or more producers and producer institutions. Such a company can only have equity capital, require a minimum of five directors and an authorised capital of Rs. 5 lakh. The procedure for forming a Producer company is similar to the one for forming a private limited company.

    For a Limited Liability Partnership registration in India, Vakilsearch is one of the most affordable and steadfast service providers.

    Types of Producer Companies

    Production Businesses

    The main functions of producer companies are production, procurement or manufacture of any primary produce for its members (for further sale) and to others.

    Marketing Businesses

    Even a business involved in the marketing or promotion of primary produce or provision of educational services to members and others can constitute itself as a producer company.

    Technical Service Businesses

    Any business offering technical assistance to producers, providing training and educational services or conducting research and development can register as a producer company.

    Financing Businesses

    Any business financing producer activities, be it in the production, marketing or development domain, can register itself as a producer company.

    Infrastructure Businesses

    Businesses involved in providing infrastructure to producers, whether in the form of electricity, water resources, irrigation techniques, land utilisation, or consultation with regard to the same, may constitute themselves as a producer company.

    Advantages of a Producer Company

    Limited Liability

    All businesses can run the risk of not being able to repay their liabilities. It is a necessary evil. In this event, a sole proprietor (or individual producer) would be personally liable for all the debts of the business. The members of a producer company, on the other hand, have unlimited liability as the company is an entity in itself. Therefore, only the amount invested in the business would be lost; the personal property of the directors would be safe.

    Economies Of Scale

    Only 15% of India’s farmers own over two acres of land. The majority of farmers are, therefore, unable to safely unlock the advantages that come with economies of scale. With a producer company, multiple farmers can work as a collective and lower costs, reduce risk and even get access to better credit facilities. This enables better planning and bargaining power with buyers.

    Better Management

    Rather than a single farmer managing the entire business, work within a producer company can be divided between its directors. The entity is managed by the Board of Management, which has a tenure of five years. Also, a Producer company has a separate legal existence, which means that it isn’t affected by the death of any of its members
