We’ve been helping customers succeed for over 30 years through our established global supply chains.
Our vast sourcing network of both small and large-scale millers and farmers, combined with our worldwide sales, distribution and warehousing teams have created our strong position that customers can rely on.
A Major Originator & Trader of Rice
A Global Rice Network
We work closely with rice millers, farmers and third-party suppliers to source and supply high-quality rice from rice producing countries in Asia and the Americas. We’ve established key partnerships, such as with the Thai Rice Department and the German development agency (GIZ), to promote sustainable rice cultivation. Through these partnerships we work closely with rice farmers to implement the Sustainable Rice Platform (SRP) Standard to improve their livelihoods and reduce environmental impacts of rice farming.
Our 10,000-hectare, fully mechanised, large-scale rice farm in Nasarawa State in Nigeria supplies growing domestic demand, while supporting economic and agricultural development opportunities for local farmers. Our farm has an integrated rice mill with a processing capacity of 70,000 tonnes, and acts both as a centre for improving productivity and as a vocational training hub for thousands of smallholders from nearby communities.
Commitment to Quality
Our commitment to quality is at the core of our end-to-end supply chain capabilities. Our extensive warehousing & distribution networks enable us to supply high-quality rice &tinue to be a strategic partner to recognised brands.
We operate four rice processing facilities where we mill rice paddy, & sort & carry out packing activities with a combination of owned & leased assets. Our owned rice processing plants in India, Thailand & Vietnam have achieved internationally recognised food safety & quality management systems & certifications, including BRC, US FDA, Halal
certifications in Thailand, BRC, US FDA, Halal certifications in India & BRC, ISO 22000, Halal certifications in Vietnam. In Thailand we aggregate, sort & pack over 240,000 tonnes of rice every year, while in Vietnam we have an annual processing capacity of 65,000 tonnes.
We are one of the few foreign-owned companies with a Vietnamese export license, which enables us to fully integrate with our in-country processing capabilities to offer Vietnam’s premium rice globally. This approach allows us to control & maintain quality throughout the supply chain.
We’re focused on building sustainable production, which can scale to feed the growing population and improve livelihoods and farming practices.
We work with farmers, governments, customers and civil society partners to improve sustainability across rice supply chains.
Rice cultivation is a leading contributor to climate change, emitting 10% of all global man-made methane emissions and is a significant consumer of water, while being a key source of nutrition and income for millions of small-scale farmers.
Partnering to Make a Difference
Sustainable Rice Platform
As a founding member of the Sustainable Rice Platform (SRP), we’re working to promote and implement more holistic standards for water and land use, labour standards, GHG emissions and the reduction of chemical inputs. We’ve partnered with the German development agency (GIZ), UN environment (UNEP) and the International Rice Research Institute (IRRI) to help define internationally accepted, scientific solutions to the climate impacts of rice agriculture.
Sustainable Rice Production
Our partnerships with national governmental and international organisations such as GIZ, the Thai Rice Department and the NAMA facility, enable us to implement projects that verify solutions on the ground, before scaling up solutions. Our outgrowers’ project in Ubon Ratchathani, Thailand, has produced the world’s first sustainable rice, fully verified by a third-party.
Collaboration with Communities
To make a tangible impact on livelihoods, we’re seeking to improve farming communities by investing in public goods, improving the reach of our rice farm vocational training centre, distributing better inputs, and developing farming communities in Nigeria.
