REWA Rice Limited plans to grow its own rice to supplement the production of the crop in the country.
Company mill manager Ashrit Pratap said they had been identifying potential rice farming areas for development.
"We are planning to produce our own rice and with this, we will hire our own labourers," he said.
"This doesn't mean that we are not going to buy from the farmers, instead we are just trying to supplement the country's rice production.
"We will continue to buy rice from the farmers at their doorsteps at $750 per tonne provided the paddies are dry and clean.
"We are also trying to reposition ourselves in the market through re-branding and some other minor changes. This is also in the pipeline."
Company chairman Raj Sharma said they assisted farmers by picking rice paddies from their doorsteps.
"This has allowed farmers to save their transportation costs," he said.
