Our tapioca starch comes to you from the state-of-the-art manufacturing process employed by us. Purity is our strength and it comes to you from the best hygienic conditions possible. Our leadership in the industry is due to the standards we have set both in commercial and social aspects. Quality is the buzz word and it starts from sourcing the roots to packing. Behind everything is our Attitude towards Quality that offers you the best product
We process roots within 24 Hours of harvest.
Tapioca tuber is abundantly cultivated in Periyar, Dharmapuri, Rajaji and Salem Districts of Tamilnadu, India. Our factory is strategically located in the tapioca belt and the raw material is sourced from within 50km radius of the factory. We require a supply of 80,000 tones of tubers against the estimated production of 4 million tonnes. Our requirement of raw material is only 2% of State production. Raw material is available in surplus in Periyar District where our factory is located to the extent of 121,000 MT. We are fully assured of supply of quality raw material.
Before we agree to procure tubers from farmers an assessment of soil is done. Quality of tubers is checked with respect to stem, fibre and fungal attack. An estimation of starch is also made. Only after the tubers meet our standards do we agree to buy them. The farmers are educated regularly by our Field Officers on scientific cultivation of Tapioca (hyper link to SPAC with farmers). Only the best tubers roll into our pre-process reception yard. We have a pre-process root reception facility that allows air for respiration and life activity of tubers. Our reception yard does not cause starch losses. We process roots within 24 hours of harvest. This is a major advantage we enjoy. We need only 30 minutes to convert the roots to starch powder.
At the point of reception we weigh the lorry/truck on a platform scale. To determine the proportion of dirt in the delivery a sample of roots is washed on a laboratory washer. The difference of weight before and after washing indicates the proportion of dirt. Then we determine underwater weight by means of a special scale from which the starch content is read.
We make sure that the
raw material is best in quality.
