1kg & 2kg Packs available – . It is uniquely the only mainstream premium rice that is a single variety harvested from the region of West Punjab where basmati was first grown over 5000 years ago. The rice dehusked in its mill in West Punjab before completing the milling process in the UK. Instead of producing a highly polished grain with a white appearance, the grains are lightly polished so that the rice has a superior aroma, flavour and contains more nutrients that highly polished grains. This unique quality makes White Pearl Basmati rice one of the most sort after in the UK, Europe and in Asia. This premium rice is rated as one of the top 50 foods in the UK.
