NAND PERSAUD & COMPANY LIMITED began its operations with a one-ton per hour mill at No. 36 Village, Corentyne, Berbice, GUYANA. The late Founder, Mr. Nand Persaud, envisioned the need for a milling facility that would cater for rice farmers across the East Berbice region and, by March 1992, Nand Persaud & Sons was established.
Today, the Nand Persaud and Company Rice Milling Complex, located alongside the public road at No. 36 Village, is one of the most commanding landmarks along the entire Corentyne Public Road. It boasts an ever evolving state of the art operation that incorporates the latest technology, ensuring consistency in the high quality of the product milled. Nand Persaud and Company Ltd. is the home of Karibee Rice, Crown Rice, Pure Acreage Rice, Eve Rice and Naisa Rice.
In the same year, 1992, a spare parts centre was established to cater to the needs of the agriculture sector in Guyana. Now known as the Nand Persaud Agriculture Machinery Department, this centre provides hard-to-get, heavy duty parts and equipment.
In 2001, the Company diversified into other major investments. The first was Nand Persaud International Communications Inc (NPIC); a BPO and Contact Center with locations at Tain, Port Mourant and at Diamond on the East Bank of Demerara.

Knowing how important it is for farmers to have access to reliable and affordable seeds, fertilizers & pesticide supply, the Company went on to launch Nand Persaud Seeds & Pesticides in 2009. This new venture was created to provide a line of credit to help the farmers and still does today. More recently, Nand Persaud & Company Limited donated $40M to the University of Guyana for the establishment of a soil testing lab, which would benefit both the farmers and the students of the University.
