Quality control is the sum of all those controllable factors that ultimately influence positively the quality of the finished product e.g. selection of raw materials, processing methods, packaging, methods of storage distribution and the like.
The principles of quality control are considered under the following heads:
Raw material is procured from an area with specific GI (Geographical Indication) and chemical composition that fall in line with our standard specifications. Paddy is stringently checked for its quality in the fields that grow it as well as in the laboratory. Representative samples are tested for their authenticity. Paddy is screened for its physical quality, milling quality and culinary properties in our in-house laboratory that is installed with mini milling equipments from renowned firms.
Processing is done exactly as per the protocols, and in the presence of the quality team. Employees are trained for GHP (Good Hygiene Practice). The processing chain is carefully monitored for potential hazards and is closely observed on a regular basis. The product is thoroughly monitored during the on-line processing for obtaining the quality that is required. The paddy is then subjected to hydrothermal treatment followed by a special drying, tempering and milling process.
