Overview:Galaxy Rice was originally a project of the Punjab Industrial Development Board in 1974, by the name of Doaba Rice Mills. The word Doaba Literally means “Two waters”. This refers to the very fertile land between the two rivers of Ravi and Chenab. Both rivers flow from waters of the melting snow, from the Hindu Kush and the Himalayas.
The project was privatized by the government in 1992 and subsequently became Galaxy Rice (pvt) Ltd. The Mill was setup with certain important facts in mind, which to this day provide the company with a competitive edge.
