More than 300 products are developed so far starting from soap items to special tonic and medicinal items.The products include all soap items,liquid soap items, all squash items,jam items, jelly items, halwa and cake items, varatty and peda items,all pickle items, all powder items,all masala and spicy items,all snacks and chips items,all umbrella items,almost all consumer items,ayurvedic powders and medicinal tonic items,all jackfruit products,all nutmeg products, all the bilimbi products and the like.The focus is not to duplicate the products available in the market but to concentrate on indigenous items.Special attention is given to develop value added products from the locally available resources.None of the products are manufactured by the Gandhi Centre and the Centre’s role is coordination and supervision.It concentrates on giving professional training,providing raw material support,packing support,labeling support,product pricing,quality checking and marketing support. It helps to eliminate exploitation in the three stages of production, ie. manufacturing stage in the form of wages, marketing stage in the form of sales commission  and capital investment stage in the form of profit margin.
