Not many know that in 2010, Nita Ambani flew over to Sri Lanka on her private jet to buy 25,000 pieces of kitchenware from a century-old Japanese brand called Noritake. The porcelain crockery set has 22-carat gold and platinum edges that cost an estimated Rs 1.5 crore. Noritake has been a popular brand in the US where it landed several decades ago. The brand itself is a favourite with hotel chains, airlines, and private homes.
According to an Economic Times report, a single Noritake dinner set with 22-carat gold trimmings could cost somewhere between $800 and $2,000 in India, and in Sri Lanka, it would cost 70-80% (between $300 and $500) cheaper there than elsewhere. Reports estimated that even if one were to count the fuel required to fly in and out, Ambani would still be able to save a decent amount given the massive size of the order. Noritake in Sri Lanka is cheaper than in India because the country has a Noritake factory that manufactures all the products from the line. Sans the duty, taxes etc., the prices of Noritake products in SL are considerably lower than in India.
