This fact cannot be overlooked. Gujarat State Forest Development Corporation Limited has decided to establish Integrated wood working unit nick named "VANIL UDYOG". VanilUdyog has been established at village Navtad, Taluka-Vansda, Dist. Navsari at the total cost of Rs. 1.66 Crores on 12-11-1979 and started production on experimental basis on 25-09-1981 it started commercial production in 1982.
