Our black soyabean has been sourced from villages situated in the Ramganga Catchment around the hills of Ranikhet in the Almora district of Uttarakhand. The river originating in the southern slopes of Dudhatoli Hills of Gairsain subdivision (Diwali Khal) is endowed with beautiful landscapes and is the lifeline of world-famous Corbett National Park. As it flows through untouched mountain corridors, it brings with itself an abundance of pure aquatic and loam properties. Black Soyabean, grown by our women SHG members in their fields in this rich valley, imbibes the purity of Ramganga waters, which manifests in its taste and properties.
