(Brief History of Shree Doodhaganga Krishna S.S.K. Ltd., Chikodi.)

Considering the call of administration of independent India to go for Industrialisation and to develop agro based Industry in Rural India particularly, to Sugar Industry has emerged as a source of livelihood for the Rural farming community. Observing the greater changes with Industrial policy & to provide financial support to the farmers of this backward & Border areas, our vetern Co-operator and Agriculturist late Shri Chidanand B.Kore & his contemparies had resorted to go for a Sugar Industry in this area after putting a enormous efforts in getting Licences, clearances, collection of equities and technical support, Shree Doodhaganga Krishna S.S.K. Niyamit, Chikodi had come into existence with a crushing capacity at 1250 TCD from 1974-75. With the assistance of Cane Grower members and higher term lending Institutions the factory was crushing at the rated capacity by fulfilling its objects till 1984-85.

The then Management had taken a pertinent decision to enhance the crushing capacity from 1250 TCD to 2000 TCD from 1984-85 onwards. Meanwhile a lot of changes were taking place in the field of sugar technology & financial management, & it was proved that the stand alone Sugar Industry would not be viable & to achieve the financial stability of Sugar Factory should go with expansion of crushing capacity and install the by-products units. A time had come to crush more cane in a shorter period & to run the by products units for a longer time. Then came a great change in the Management. Under the ablest leadership of the then M.P. Shri Prabhakar B.Kore, MLC, Chairman K.L.E. Society, Belgaum, the Management had taken major decisions to go for expanded capacity in crushing to install Co-generation Power Project & Distillery Units.

The Annual General Body Meeting had supported wholeheartedly & contributed more shares for taking up sum useful units. The State had rarely seen such a Cooperator, Educationalist, Social reformer and visionary like Shri Prabhakar B.Kore who had dedicated his life totally for all-round development of farming community. Under the stewardship since 1991-92 the factory had started its changes & had taken a shape to fit itself to go a sound finance support directly to farmers & workers and indirectly to the people involved in such activities. Looking to the then circumstances and technical changes in the Sugar scenario the following projects have been implemented through years upto 1999-2004.

1) Crushing capacity 5500 TCD.
2) 20.7 MW, 8 MW Co-gen power project.
