Kerala Dinesh Beedi Co-Operative

Workshop in Kannur

The Kannur region is known for the manufacture of beedis, those tiny Indian cigarettes deftly rolled inside green leaves. This is one of the largest and purportedly best manufacturers, with a factory at Thottada, 3km inland from Thottada Beach. A skilled individual can roll up to 1000 beedis a day! Visitors are welcome to look around; hours can vary.
