Online panel discussion: Opportunities in speciality rice

European interest in speciality rice is growing. Popular varieties on the European market include aromatic rice, such as basmati and jasmine rice, and coloured rice, such as black and red rice. Special types of rice with a connection to a specific group are also popular. The increasing demand for healthy and sustainable food creates opportunities for rice with organic and fair trade labels.

Join this webinar to find out which trends and countries in Europe are interesting for speciality rice exporters. We will also look at what you have to do to become a supplier to European buyers.

Our expert panel will discuss:

  • Which countries offer opportunities for speciality rice?
  • Which trends affect speciality rice consumption in Europe?
  • How can you prepare your company for the European market?
  • What are your possible market entry options?
