National Rice Week 2017 – 18th-24th September

National Rice Week 2017

We are proud to once again be supporting National Rice Week this September in celebration of the great grain itself.

The beauty of rice is its versatility; it can take on a number of flavours, meaning it’s a great ingredient to bulk up dishes, without compromising on taste. Not only can it be used to make starters, mains and desserts, but it’s also a gluten-free hero, and is a firm favourite among vegetarians.

We want to inspire chefs across the nation to put more of this versatile grain on menus, in different ways to what you’d expect, so we’ve teamed up with award-winning development chef Dez Turland to bring you the finest collection of recipes using our speciality rice range – Arborio, Fragrant Jasmine, and Basmati & Wild. Replacing regular rice with one of our speciality varieties is the easy way to premiumise your dishes and create better profit margins.

To help you get in the spirit, we’ve created an eye-catching poster for you to print, personalise and display in your establishment during the week to showcase your rice dishes and make the most of this great profit opportunity.
