Hariom Atta & Spices specialises in manufacturing a range of products, including flour (chakki atta), herbs & spices, unpolished pulses, grains, and yellow mustard oil, which are marketed under the brand name “HARIOM" through Exclusive Brand Outlets in and around Delhi-NCR.

It carefully sources raw materials from different parts of the country and processes them without artificial preservatives or chemicals, resulting in an organic product portfolio known for its freshness and purity, as stated in its DRHP report.
