The Food Industry and the quality of food products are constantly scrutinized by consumers, especially those who are health conscious and pursue an active lifestyle. Rice production is one of the most vital aspects of the global food industry. Globally, the annual production of rice stands at 495 million metric tons while rice consumption is at 483 million metric tons.
One of the leading rice millers in the country, Tradlanka Agricultural Enterprises (Pvt) Limited which markets the ‘Ariya Rice’ brand, with the global food company Hain Celestial Group’, has introduced the rice brand ‘Tilda’ to the Sri Lankan market.
Tilda Basmathi rice is grown and harvested at the foothills of the Himalayas and known for its flavour, aroma and texture.
