This aromatic flavourful Pahadi Rice is cultivated at the base of the Himalayan mountain ranges of Uttarakhand in a place called Bageshwar, also popularly known as 'dhan ka katora' which means 'the grain bowl' of Uttarakhand. The grains of this rice become longer after cooking, retain their firm texture, and remain non-sticky, making it ideal for daily consumption as well as 'pulav' and 'biryani'.
Trishulii's products are special because they come from a 100% farmer-owned cooperative, which means the produce is grown and sold directly by small individual farmers. All the produce is grown with a lot of love, in the pure and pollution-free environment of the Himalayas, with absolutely zero chemicals, pesticides, and fertilizers.
When you shop from communities like Trishulii -
- You consume food that is naturally grown, without any chemical inputs, and completely traceable to the source.
- Farmers go beyond only selling to traders, and participate in the entire value chain of harvesting, sorting, packing, and finally marketing & selling their produce directly to you.
- This directly leads to higher income for farmers and the development of business and entrepreneurship skills in rural communities.
We hope you are transported to the Himalayas, even if in spirit while enjoying your Pahadi Rice!
Please be assured - This product has been tested for nutrition and safety parameters, and is fully compliant with FSSAI regulations.
