National Rice Week 2018

National Rice Week is back and better than ever! We are proud to once again be supporting the week 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 and vegans.

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 put together a special collection of recipes using our speciality range that will help set your menu apart from the rest.

The range, which includes Arborio, Fragrant Jasmine, and Basmati & Wild, offers caterers an easy way to premiumise their existing 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.
