February 11: Rentio Toor Dal is a popular name in Indian households. Its 85-year-old history makes it the oldest dal manufacturer in India.
It is the only Toor Dal processed without water using a unique dry process devised by Rentio. As a result, it retains its original rich taste, colour and flavour.
The Rentio process does not use hybrid or imported seeds but only Desi seeds, mainly grown without the use of chemical fertilizers or insecticides and all of Rentio’s Dals are genuinely unpolished so the unique Desi flavour and its natural nutrients remain intact.
The word Rentio means Charkha or Spinning Wheel.
The family adopted this name for the brand as they were actively involved in the national freedom struggle during the 1930s. All the family members spun cotton yarn on the charkha (Rentio) every day as a part of the struggle routine.
The raw material while processing and the finished product, both are stringently tested at the in-house laboratory. Processed with the help of modern machines, the quality meets all the high standards expected by consumers.
The third generation of the family running Rentio is taking all measures to keep the original quality, packing and distribution intact while adapting to modern times.
Rentio’s products include Rentio Premium Desi Oiled Toor Dal, Rentio Super Desi Toor Dal, and R-Proto Toor Dal. Rentio has also ventured into the ready-to-eat category with ‘Heat n Eat’ a range of instant, authentic Indian recipes.
Rentio expects to remain a leader in processing and marketing Dals for many years to come.
