Nand Persaud & Company Limited; millers and suppliers of white and parboiled rice to local and overseas markets began its operations 29 years ago with a one-ton per hour mill located at No. 36 Village, Corentyne, under the bottom house of the late Founder, Mr Nand Persaud, who envisioned the need for a milling facility that would cater for rice farmers across East Berbice.

The first mill was established and by March 1992, the Company, Nand Persaud and Sons was established together with a spares parts centre to cater for the needs of the agriculture sector. This centre provided hard-to-get heavy-duty spares for almost all agriculture machinery and equipment.

Today, Nand Persaud Rice Milling Complex is one of the most commanding landmarks located along the Corentyne Public Road. It boasts an ever-evolving state-of-the-art operation that incorporates the latest technology, ensuring consistency in the quality of the product milled and refined for local and export markets.

The growth of Nand Persaud & Company Limited over the last 29 years has been exponential. From its humble 1-tonne capacity, the Company is now capable of producing up to 157 tonnes of parboiled rice per day with white rice production at 10 tonnes per hour.

Nand Persaud and Company Ltd is the home of Karibee Brand of white and parboiled rice. These well-loved and fast cooking products have taken the local, regional and international markets by storm. It is the preferred brand of rice for almost every household in Guyana today. It is available at all supermarkets countrywide. Karibee is also exported to markets throughout the Caribbean and further to markets in North America and Europe.
