Long Grain White Rice



Since more than 30 years STC has been importing Long Grain White Rice which is known as ‘ration rice’ by Mauritians. Initially, STC used to import long grain rice with 35% broken (‘brisure’). Over the years, Government through STC has shown its willingness to continuously improve the quality of imported Long Grain rice to the benefit of the population. The high percentage of broken in the rice imported was gradually brought down to 25%, then 15% and today, STC is importing a very clean long grain white rice with up to 5% broken packed in 25kg bags.


The annual imports of long grain rice turn around 20,000 Metric Tons. All the rice consignments are tested at the Mauritius Standards Bureau and at times the percentage of broken in the rice is lower than 5%( nearly 2-3 %), showing a finer quality of long grain rice. The stocks of long grain rice are stored in STC’s dedicated warehouse under strict hygienic conditions.


Moreover, as from the year 2011, STC has started purchasing rice in small lots through Request for Quotation (RFQ) every three to four months so as to take advantage of the fluctuation in prices on the world market, thus benefitting in terms of price, as well as quality of the rice.


In 2014, STC introduced the Long Grain White Rice (ration rice) in smaller packaging of 2.5kg in order to make it more accessible to the consumers.
