What Do Our Customers Say?
They are selling quality cold pressed oils and natural sugars at reasonable price. I have been personally using their products for the last one year and satisfied. Only thing is that delivery in Delhi takes some time.
Great variety of products not chemically processed. Recently purchased Sesame/Gingelly oil, coconut and honey. The product quality was great + Cold pressed oil - mostly all the nutrients are intact and hence food , fry items taste better + Great price and almost competent to the market price + Coconut oil was good. But not as like purchased from my neighbor. But still good - The site is very slow most of the times - Delivery took 6 days at this point to Bangalore
I'm in receipt of their products viz illipai oil , neem oil , castor oil , coconut oil from the past three years ..good quality..have referred to my relatives here ..one of them just recd the order ...thank you v much 🙏
Poor staffing. I called to confirm if they were open. When I went, the store was closed at 4 pm. Sales people are talking on the phone most of the time when I visit and they don't bother to cut the call . Oil quality is also degrading.
