An online shopping website ‘Zizira’ is marketing indigenous products of Meghalaya in a big way.

Targeting consumers across the country, the online shopping website is promoting the famous Lakadong turmeric powder.

This highly beneficial turmeric is extensively grown at a place called Ladadong near Jowai in the Jaintia hills.

This is one of the highest, as against two to three per cent in most varieties of turmeric.
