About LT Foods Ltd

LT Foods Ltd, incorporated in 1990, as a private limited company is one of the country’s leading processor and exporter of packaged rice foods under the flagship brand “Daawat”. The brand is among the top players in the domestic branded Basmati Rice markets. The ‘Daawat’ brand has been a great success in international markets as well. When it all began about 30 years ago, nobody could have even dreamt that the small trading company that came into being as Lalchand Tirathram Mills could one day be on its way to become a leading global food company. In 1965, Bhikiwind, in a little village in Amritsar (Punjab, India); Raghunath Arora started a small trading company which grew from being a commissioning agent to a partnership firm by 1977, as Lalchand Tirathram Rice Mills.

Unorganized players with inconsistent quality products were crowding the market. In this scenario, V K Arora felt the need to promote branded and packaged products. In line with this vision, the company started the business of milling, processing and marketing of branded basmati rice and manufacturing of rice food products in the domestic and overseas market.
