                   Rural Returns is founded on two premises. One is the potential market we have seen for heirloom red rice varietals endemic
                   to Sri Lanka, which are tasty, aromatic, colorful and healthy, with unusual nutritional compositions. The second is the

                   and helps them spend it wisely. Our model is similar to Ceylon Tea, which is to develop an umbrella brand for products from
                   the rural communities we work with, extending beyond rice as and when we can add new lines. Rural Returns will be the
