Basmati Is a Healthy Super grain,

Basmati Is A Taste Sensation


Process behind Our Quality

Our export quality Rice is processed from the paddy collected from bed of Himalayas i.e fertile land of Punjab. Before buying the raw material “paddy” various checking processes are completed. The processes involve:

Growing & Cultivation of Basmati Crop

The basmati crop is grown under complete natural conditions and climate of the Punjab. Cultivation is carefully observed, and quality improvement measures are suggested “Right from seed quality upgrading to application of crop protection techniques”.

Procurement of Raw Rice/Paddy

We purchase both the Paddy and Rice from the farmers and grain markets which goes through the scrutiny of our quality control technicians to make sure that paddy/rice meets stringent quality standards. Selection and purchase of pure healthy and top grade paddy is critically important to guarantee best quality rice. IRM does procurement of paddy/rice to produce the final refined rice to be shipped around the world.

Drying and Parboiling Units

For drying rice, at present we have Eleven Dryers with the capacity of 55 MT/HR (drying capacity of Paddy) In cleaning stage. Both mechanical and density separation techniques are used to provide the clean paddy/rice for the next stage of the milling process.


We being the pioneers who installed Parboiling/Steaming Plants in Pakistan. We have developed our expertise in Parboiling/Steaming process through research & development and experience. Thus our rice quality as a result of this process is far better than our competitors in the market. At present we have three Parboiling/Steaming plants having capacity of 15 MT/HR.


At IRM, selected paddy/rice goes through a maturation of nine months to a year to achieve best results. Stocks of rice are placed at IRM’s Well-ventilated spacious warehouses having storage capacity of 75000M/tons, these warehouses have been constructed specifically to store rice under hygienic conditions. During maturing period, stocks are subjected to periodic inspection and fumigation from time to time under experts’ supervision for protection against infestation by organisms.

Husking and Re-processing Units

For husking, top range Japanese De-stoners, Huskers, Paddy Separator, Polisher from SATAKE having capacity of 20MT/HR has been installed to ensure delicate rice grains do not develop cracks and broken tips during husking. This minimal processing therefore produces rice that is healthier to eat.


At present IRM has four re-processing Units having capacity of 20 MT/HR equipped with the state of the art machinery being imported from SATAKE Corporation Japan “like De-Stoner, Paddy Separator, Thickness Grader, Polisher, Length Grader and Colour Sortex Machines” etc.

Packaging & Shipment

We have installed modern automated computerized bagging scales to ensure high degree of accuracy in weighing. Each and every bag shipped weighs precisely the same. The equipment is capable of packaging different sizes and types mainly:- Cotton | Jute | Non-Woven | Paper-Bag | Polythene “Transparent” | Metalized | PP Metalized | Polypropylene Packaging process is carefully designed, performed and monitored to increase shelf life of products as well as easy handling till the point-of-consumption. With an in-house design team, we work with our dedicated team of designers, we closely work on packaging as per the requirements of customers along with our own brands. After processing and packing we keep the final product in warehouses for loading where extra precautionary measures are taken to safe guard it from weevils and other insects.

Packing Materials

We start with quality and our destination is excellence in each grain of rice. we closely work on packaging as per the requirements of customers along with our own brands. Below is the table giving detail of packing material available in different sizes.
