Our Story

Then and now

New Rathna Rice (pvt) Ltd was established as small rice mill in 1981 with five employees. Those days we dry the boiled paddy at a big yard with sunlight. And we passed a few difficult eras and at the moment we use the world famous new technology called BUHLER. At the same time we help to our village farmers by offering the best price for their harvest. So they never leave our rice mill and that's one of the key point to our success. We maintain a bulk of paddy stock continuously all over the year. Generally we are maintaining a stock of 50000MT of paddy in all verities. Recently we opened our new factory at Welikanda area with total land space of 200 acre and the mill has spread through 10 acre. In present our milling capacity per hour is 47MT which leads to a total rice production of 400MT per day.
