Corn Information

Our Unique Technique of extracting the whole kernel, which is not severed from the corncob, ensures that the taste remains fresh, crunchy, and juicy. To capture its finest qualities, the kernels are packed in retort pouches with our high-tech imported retorting system within few hours of being harvested.

 

Our Plantations are located in the suburbs, far from city centres that allows for growth in a non-polluted environment and much healthier environment. We have a good control system in place that ensures our corn is well grown.

 

Our Business Concept

We manage and maintain the whole process, from farming, processing and storage to distribution of the finished products and therefore not only are we able to ensure consistency but also maintain a continuous supply all year round.

 

We invested in years of researching and developing this concept and were one of the first to initiate sweet corn farming in South India. Over the years, we have developed a substantial export network, serving customers throughout Asia, the UAE and Australia.

 

History of Corn

Corn is known scientifically as Zea mays. This moniker reflects its traditional name, maize, by which it is known throughout many areas of the world. Being a staple food in primitive civilizations, the earliest traces of meals made from corn dates back about 7,000 years.

 

Although we often associate corn with the colour yellow, this vegetable actually comes in different varieties and colours like red, pink, black and blue. Corn grows in “ears," each of which is covered in rows of kernels that are protected by the silk-like threads called "corn silk," and finally, encased in a husk.

 

Not just a popular food, corn is also the base of many products, including antibiotics, baby foods, bourbon, chewing gum, condensed milk, corn flour, corn meal, corn oil, cornstarch, corn syrup, corn whiskey, ethanol, laundry starch and peanut butter.
