About Galaxy Rice
Galaxy Rice Mill was originally one of the Government rice milling facilities. It was set up by the Punjab industrial Development land in 1974. There were 6 mills by the name of Doaba Rice Mills. The Word Doaba literally means two waters. This refers to the very fertile land between two rivers of Ravi & Chenab in Punjab. Both rivers flow from the Hindu-Kush and the Himalayan Mountain regions. These Mills were setup to provide market for local farmers, where farmers could supply rice paddy directly to these mills instead of going to the local market. All Six of the Doaba Mills were privatized in 1992.
One of the mills subsequently became Galaxy Rice Mills (Pvt) Ltd. The Doaba Mills were located with specific advantages in mind.- The surrounding area has ideal soil chemistry for growing high quality Basmati rice.- The surrounding area is farmed by thousands of small farmers.
- The local area is traditionally known for providing the longest and most aromatic rice
- The mill can acquire the purest Basmati as the paddy arrives directly from the local farms during harvest
