Journey So far……

ORMAS has been organizing exhibitions for last 21 years in most of the cities of Odisha under the banner of “Pallishree Mela”‘Pallishree' which literally means 'wealth of villages' provides an opportunity to rural poor to sell their products directly in major urban centers & interact with the urban buyers which helps in studying and comprehending the latter's tastes/preferences. Thus it helps them to upgrade & develop their products, customer handling skills and meet the need of urban consumers thereby enlarging their customer base. It has almost become a trend in Orissa that during important local festivals ORMAS Exhibition is a compulsory part of the festivities for which  both producers & buyers are eagerly waiting.
