Why We Exist

About The Founder 

founder Sibi Manivannan regularly visited oil refineries to buy cooking oils for his family’s restaurant business. And was disappointed with the rampant usage of chemical solvents and flavour essences in everyday refined oils.

Having grown up in a family of traditional chekku (ghani) oil-makers, he got involved with the idea of bringing these healthy, nutrition-rich oils back into everyday cooking.

The Gramiyaa Story 

With extensive R&D, the Gramiyaa team built traditional stone mills inside a modern hygienic facility. Like earlier times, oil is minimally processed, unheated, and extracted with zero chemicals. founder
We take pride in the fact that Gramiyaa facility is now operated by a group of local traditional oil makers who had to leave their profession over the past two decades and move into low-skill jobs.
Gramiyaa now makes minimally processed oils and ghee, which are delivered super-fast to our customers across the country from local warehouses in 5 metros.
