Go First (formerly known as Goair) has introduced a new inflight menu in collaboration with Raj Uphaar, a women empowerment programme of Shrimad Rajchandra Love and Care, an initiative under Shrimad Rajchandra Mission Dharampur (SRMD).

Raj Uphaar empowers many underprivileged tribal women of south Gujarat towards self-reliance and sustainable livelihood.

The low-cost has added rice chakri, masala wafers, almond thins, and waffle chips to its inflight menu on the domestic and international network. These products are made by tribal women of Raj Uphaar.

As part of the introductory offer, Go First is offering a 20 per cent discount for online and onboard purchases until August 31, 2021.

Kaushik Khona, chief executive officer, Go First said:

“We at Go First have led various initiatives for the empowerment of the marginalised sections of society. This innovative initiative is an extension of our ongoing social programmes and is aimed at the inclusiveness and empowerment of these wonderfully talented women at Raj Uphaar. We believe that the products rank high on quality and our passengers will love them.

“The facility at Dharampur maintains food hygiene standards and the Raj Upahaar also has the FSSAI accreditation for its facility and products. We are delighted to provide support, even though small it may be for this noble and social cause.”

Atmarpit Nemiji, trustee, Shrimad Rajchandra Mission Dharampur commented:

“Rural women have evolved and truly benefitted from ‘Raj Uphaar’. Raj Uphaar is a laboratory of innovation; a school of learning; a space of conquering fears, building confidence, cultivating values; and a home for holistic development.”
