The Legend of Tilda Basmati began over 30 years ago, and today Tilda’s commitment to preserving Basmati continues to be even stronger and more passionate.
Farmers still grow Basmati using traditional methods, which have been passed down from generation to generation. Tilda’s experienced buyers have only one brief – to buy the best Basmati, regardless of price. We always insist on fair play, ensuring that farmers consistently receive a good return for their high quality crop.
Our range at Tilda is now the number one Basmati brand in the UK Foodservice market by volume, due not only to the quality and versatility of our offering, but also to the unique relationship maintained with those that grow this legendary rice. Throughout our success, we have never forgotten the farming communities that lie at the heart of our business, who we endeavour to support and help develop. We know over 10,000 small independent farmers by name, and recognise them as the key to achieving the quality that Tilda rice is celebrated for.
Through our growing investment and commitment to Basmati rice and those that grow it, our customers can rely on us to provide a product that is superior in quality and consistency. The Tilda Basmati range is deliciously versatile and has fantastic yield in every bag. Furthermore, our caterers can feel assured that by using Tilda rice, they are not only delivering fantastic taste and quality to their customers, but supporting the growers too.
