Born in the small coastal town of Cuddalore (Tamil Nadu), Mr. CK Ranganathan (fondly referred to as CKR) may have had a modest beginning but it was from this humble foundation that he went on to build a business empire spanning many verticals – The conglomerate CavinKare! Having built a formidable reputation in the consumer products industry on the back of its strong R&D, marketing and distribution capabilities, Cavinkare is also pioneered saloon Brands in India - Green trends and Limelite. Beyond the building of the mammoth brands as mentioned above, CKR gravitated towards starting a venture in a sphere that was personally meaningful and fulfilling to him.
A passion that can be traced back to his youth, CKR was always fascinated with the idea of turning his childhood hobby of caring for pets, feathered friends and animals into something more productive. While building his extraordinary business empire, CKR never forgot the one thing he loved and deeply cared about – His love for pets, feathered friends and animals. And so came about the professional team of Cavin International Pvt Ltd. – One of the most sought after breeders of exotic birds.
Today, having earned its standing based on expert medical methodology, ethical approach, and professionalism, Cavin International houses more than 2000 fascinating birds, two dozen canines, ponies and ostriches at two of its homesteads in Chennai and Cuddalore. The homesteads additionally have a high yielding bovine farm at Cuddalore where high-end research exercises are continued. Groundbreaking in its many animal science innovations, CavinKare has consistently chosen the road less traveled and sought the highest distinction in the field. As such, CKR has always placed the highest trust in R&D and believed that path-breaking R&D discoveries, specifically for Birds and Animals are a product of diligence and new-age science.
With livestock divisions, challenges can come unannounced in any form an any day. And so it happened with the team at Cavin International. The team was confronted with tremendous tests in the form of health issues in their livestock of Birds, Dogs, and Cows with a few acutely sick cases in their farm at Cuddalore. Moreover, no matter how hard they tried; the team couldn’t find a rational explanation behind the cause of the health issues. Even the exercise of looking for external expert assistance, both within India and abroad was in vain. Inevitably, perseverance reigned and it was decided that to find the ‘solution’, it was imperative to know the ‘why’ first. However, to know the ‘why’ the company would have to pump in resources to the tune of over Rs. 2 crores for the R&D alone! It was at this point that the organization and the team at Cavin International adopted the belief system that “This is no longer a money problem, but an ‘IDEA’ problem”.
Surmounting the challenges thrown at them repeatedly, the organization figured out a way of raising an initial amount of 50 lakhs (INR) and the rest over time. Over a dozen researchers involving Veterinary Specialists, Bio-Scientific Experts, and Microbiologists put in their hardest efforts to put in place a scientific breakthrough in animal care that not only had a widespread impact in the near-term but in the long-term as well. To that end, the team procured high-end types of equipment such as PCR, Real time PCR and worked on the molecular level isolating process besides quantifying several Bacteria and Virus. We continue to get inputs from Specialists, Experts, Consultants and Practising veterinary doctors in India and International as well. Moreover, this detailed exercise was a key research step that was undertaken over and above the many basic types of equipment that were channeled for helping with the accurate diagnosis of the disease.
The extensive R&D exercise was aimed at unwinding the secrets of ‘how’ and ‘why’ the malady happened and furthermore on the measures to control it. What’s more was the belief system for everyone at the Group was to take a logical leap forward in understanding the unexpected nature of animal diseases and logically finding the panacea via research. After executing a fruitful R&D methodology and conducting a detailed cross-examination of the infection, the team at Cavin International Pvt Ltd. inched nearer towards a fix for the disease. And by developing a complex set of procedures not only was the team successful at saving the farm but had also proved that it could give viable solutions to bird and animal diseases in the future!
Buoyed by the success of this R&D exercise, the Group developed surety & certainty and began resolving even the most complicated of cases related to birds, dogs, cows, and ponies by adopting a diagnostic methodology. The team has been very successful in diagnosing the most complicated diseases such as PBFD, Mycoplasma, Clostridium and Aspergillosis in Birds, Babesiosis in Dogs and Theileriosis in Cows and they have also learned the procedure for controlling the spread of infections in general..
