The entire procurement process is physically supervised by our trained Purchasers and quality Analyst equipped with modern handy instruments followed by approval / confirmation from our in house state of the art Laboratory.
Transportation constitutes as a major external cost component in the rice business cycle. As an important cost control measure, we have made arrangements with the local Husking Units for husking as well as storage facilities in the catchment areas of the rice markets. Husking & basic cleaning activity close to the procurement location ensures that the quantities are reduced by more than 30% in volume load that needs to be carried to our premises for onward processing, finishing & export. The storage facilities made available at our disposal close to the procurement location also play a vital role in ensuring maximum holding capacity along with safeguarding the crop against deterioration in quality due to climatic hazards. The storage facility also allows us the necessary flexibility to hold the product while synchronizing the production capacity with the delivery / sales requirements
