We're a food company
But we're always hungry

Just numbers don't satiate our hunger. Only the trust of our consumers does. That's why,
when we became a leading rice brand in India and the No. 1 speciality food brand in the US,
we didn't stop. We wanted to go even further.

Our hunger to deliver the finest has made us a trusted brand in 4 continents, and has won us several
prestigous accolades both in India and abroad.. Our drive to innovate has set a steep bar
for the food industry to follow

  • Trusted Brand Award’ byReader’s Digest

  • Brand Excellence Award’ by Economic Times

  • Product of the Year Award’ by Nielsen

With harvesting the finest produce from nature comes a solemn responsibility to package only the best speciality grains and foodstuffs for families across the world. Our seamlessly integrated operations have access and control over the entire supply chain from farm to fork.

70 years ago, a seed
was sown. Today, we're still
reaping the harvest.
