Ismail Rahim Sheru, an ordinary farmer from Gujarat turned into a multi-millionaire soon after associating with these leading food brands; McDonalds and McCain. Here’ how.

A short glimpse from where it all began:

Ismail Rahim, a B.Com graduate, went against his father’s will to settle down with a 9-5 job.

He chose hard work over easy money and started farming on his ancestral land.

Around 1998, he stumbled across this company from Canada named “McCain” and thus the journey to his success began. McCain initially signed him a contract where the potatoes from his farm were used in the making of the products.

After signing a contract with this huge brand, other opportunities eventually paved way to his farm.

He also got rid of the commission making hurdles that came along the way.

In the process of making his business stronger and supplying his farm grown potatoes to these companies, he transformed his 5 acre land to a massive 400 acre. Ismail bhai these days is running a successful business with about 12 acre land reserved for a company each.

More power to you, Ismail Bhai! Keep’ em fries coming!
