To pioneer the development of natural products, proving the underutilized potential of the region in a way that sparks a movement.
We believe there are undiscovered treasures in the hills of Meghalaya.
Abundant rainfall, rich soil, high altitude, hilly terrain, fresh air and clean water. These natural conditions combined with traditional farming methods produces unusual plants and crops found in few places in the world.
Zizira's hunt for these treasures, covers what is considered by some to be 'the richest most bio diverse region in India'.
With our knowledge of the local languages and cultures, we are able to draw from ancient wisdom and folk medicine. While you enjoy our flavorful products daily, be reminded of the importance of good farming methods. We are working hard to not only give you authentic products but to also work together with small family farmers in Meghalaya.
When you buy Zizira's products, together we create the process of regenerative and sustainable farming.
The Northeastern region is an unexpected paradise for agribusiness. Sooner it is harvested, better it will be for dawn of prosperity and peace in the region.

"Most places in the region do not have access to a market to sell their produce. The result is that farmers are forced to sell at distressed prices. Unless the situation improves the region shall remain dependent on other states for food. this might result in increased insurgency related activities. Unless the agriculture in the region is made remunerative the agrarian economy shall be shattered thereby increasing rural poverty"
