Experience

Deingsong's fresh and luscious Jams and Squash juices

Jams and Squash juices

MS Croasis Infosystems is the organization that runs the food processing unit in Sohra Rim(Diengsong) as well as being the host for this experience. They make an assortment of jams and squash juices that have been made with a minimal amount of preservatives, only using pulp and sugar as the additives. Their extensive research and knowledge of the fruits and how these fruits should be processed has made their jams and juices the freshest and tastiest in the region. Since they are well known for their quality and taste, these jams and juices are sold and distributed all over India, and plans to scale up and improve their business are in place. Furthermore, they also sell a variety of pickles and an organic variant of local honey.

Other than tasting and getting a first-hand experience of how these jams and juices are made, one can also view the scenic village of Diengsong from a viewpoint nearby which also has an amazing trekking route.
