Rices & Grains
Our wide range includes all of the well-known varieties of rice such as Basmati and long grain, to the not so well-known specialty grains. We have been active in the rice markets for more than 50 years, so we like to think our knowledge and experience is as good as most, and we always welcome a challenge! We have extensive contacts throughout all rice growing regions whether that is the Asian sub continent, South America or here in Europe, and we can meet customers’ demands. Quality driven or commercially driven, we are confident that we have the supply chain and logistical expertise to satisfy most demands. Please contact our sales team with any enquiry, large or small, and don’t worry about asking for what you might think are unusual items – we specialise in the unusual!

2010 was the year we acquired a small manufacturing company, based in Portsmouth. Quattro Foods Ltd is historically a soup manufacturing company supplying the independent outlets in the South East, but under our ownership we are working together with the management team to develop a range of products into new areas of the chilled and frozen food chain. Our BRC grade A accredited factory, together with the highly experienced development chef, are always working on new projects for varying customers, from multiple supermarket groups to restaurant chains. After 5 years, we have achieved a 400% growth in sales, mainly down to our MD Mrs Sam Brower and her team and the high quality of products that are produced.
Our latest range of ambient products produced and packed in this factory are garlic puree, ginger puree and sun dried tomatoes in various oils.

From our R&D team to our legal compliance team, our service offered is wholly encompassing. We advise on current trends such as colours, additives and preservatives and our dedicated graphic design team will also be happy to advise on label design and format. For this service, we only work with factories that have minimum accreditation criteria of ISO22000, IFS or BRC, and these are factories we have long established relationships with and who understand the demands of the food industry in Europe in the 21st century. The range of products we are currently producing is far too lengthy to list but we can safely say that nothing is beyond our team, so please contact our sales department at your earliest convenience.
