“Last year, during Onam, we sold a rice bouquet with all our six rice varieties. The response was overwhelming. We decided to cut down on the number this time since we felt that customers might get confused with too many varieties. Instead, we have gone for a new format with a table rice (Wayanadan Thondi), rice with medicinal values (Valiachennellu) and aromatic rice (Gandhakasala),” Rajesh says.
