This traditional and handmade product from Marayoor and Kanthalloor, Idukki district received the Geographical Indication (GI) tag from central government. Marayoor Sharkara is made from sugarcane and no chemicals are added during the manufacturing process. The jaggery is prepared in sheds located on the sugarcane farm.Traditional workers from Onakkallur, a village in Udumalpet in Tamil Nadu, are engaged in the production of the Marayoor Sharkara.

There are 4 major steps involved in this jaggery production. The raw sugar extract is manually taken from the freshly harvested sugar canes using a diesel-run sugarcane roller until it is pulped into a fibrous residue. As the juice is extracted, the impurities are filtered out simultaneously before it is boiled into a thick syrup on a large wok. The bagasse - the waste residue from the filtering of sugar extract - is used to fuel the wok. Once the syrup thickens, the boiled  jaggery is poured into a trough. Before the mixture gets cools down, it is rolled into the jaggery balls.
