Business & Product

Calicut, Kerala

Olam Agri, the largest exporter of rice in India, brought together representatives from restaurants, hotels and biryani joints from across Calicut at a Biryani Fiesta on 5th June to experience the superior quality of a variety of rice grains. The event celebrated the long-standing love Indians have for biryani, evident from the sheer number of biryani recipes across the country - Mughlai biryani, Hyderabadi biryani and Malabar biryani, just to name a few. A visit to Kerala is incomplete without digging into scrumptious plates full of delectable biryani served all the way from Kozhikode (Calicut) to Kasargod.

In Kerala biryani is prepared as per local taste characterised by a variety of basmati grains. White sella or golden sella basmati rice are favourite among restaurants and biryani joints as it perfectly absorbs flavours of spices. Mr Madhur Chopra, Head of Marketing; Mr Vishal Singh, National Sales Manager and Mrs Jyotsna Thakur, Deputy Manager Marketing were present from Olam Agri to meet the caterers.
