It was a conscious decision of ours to launch corn as we felt, it is imperative we do something for the farmers of our state. This is just the start for us and we expect to launch many more traditional healthy millets that we have only heard of yet not tasted.”
“With a zero-defect product policy, our fizzy beverage is the taste of Tamil Nadu. Our respect for our customers has been our motto and we understand what the customers want to taste.
