About Hindustan Vegetable Oils Corporation Limited (HVOC)

HVOC, a fully-owned Govt. Company, was formed in 1984 with merger of two nationalized companies namely Ganesh Flour Mills and Amritsar Oils Works. The Company was engaged in the business of manufacturing of Vanaspati, refining & packing of imported edible oil for PDS and manufacturing of breakfast cereal. The Company had its manufacturing and refining units at Delhi, Kanpur, Amritsar, Mumbai and Kolkata and packing units at Bangalore and Chennai.

Due to erosion of net worth as a result of continued losses, the company was referred to BIFR and declared sick in 1999. The company is now under liquidation under the supervision of the High Court of Delhi.

Presently, all the units of HVOC stand closed. The company does not have any employee on its roll. Residual activities, which involve mainly court cases are being managed through some ex-employees engaged on contract.
