Is this your brand on Milled? You can claim it.

Sri Lanka, once famed as the "Granary of the East", has a rich agricultural history and paddy cultivation is a way of life that shapes our society, culture, religion and economy. Rice – the staple food of the island nation – is cultivated during the Yala (April-July) and Maha (November-February) seasons and to date, Sri Lankans follow traditional rituals centered around the preparation of the fields and the harvesting of the grains.

Being an icon of agro-tourism, the 50 acres of lush paddy fields surrounding Jetwing Kaduruketha are shared by 31 local farming families, out of which 25 acres are used to grow a diverse variety of traditional rice – Pachchaperumal, Suwandel and Kahawanu, using age old practices passed down through generations, without the use of any chemical fertilizers and pesticides.

Laden with proteins and vitamins, these wholesome rice varieties are flavourful and support the balanced growth of the body, control diabetes, improve digestion and promote radiant, healthy skin.
