Mr. Nilesh Palresha is the Executive Director of VTP Group, a business conglomerate, operating for three decades and is renowned in the construction material and construction industry.

Nilesh is a Mechanical Engineer from Vishwakarma Institute of Technology (VIT) Pune and also has a MBA degree in Family Managed Business (FMB) from S P Jain Mumbai. His first stint of corporate life was with Tata Motors where he worked for a year prior to joining VTP.
Nilesh often researched on the agriculture industry in India and found himself very interested in its nuances. He knew this industry had great opportunities as it is the backbone of our country but it lacked dynamism and professionalism. It was this passion for agriculture and commitment to creating a difference that EarthFood was born. For him, agriculture is not just about growing fruits and vegetables, but going beyond and using latest technology to transform the age-old practices, which would not only be beneficial to him but also embolden farmers to move to a better world.

In his free time, he likes to play cricket and badminton. He believes that physical activity gives him mental clarity and his focus increases enormously. He also loves to travel. It keeps him energized, sane and happy.
