As far back as 2500 B.C. rice has been documented in the history books as a source of food. Beginning in China and the surrounding areas, its cultivation spread throughout India and it was then passed onto Greece and other areas of the Mediterranean. From Europe rice was brought to the New World.
At Swedbrand we love rice since it is an integral part of Chinese culture, not to mention its delicious taste and its incredible versatility. It represents the basis of nutrition in the whole Asian continent, eaten for breakfast, lunch and dinner! You can find rice cakes in Indonesia (the famous Martabak), rice noodles in Vietnam, fried rice in China, etc. And even rice wine!
Its packaging is obviously very important as it needs to be able to protect the product from humidity and during transportation. Nowadays the design trend for this incredible food is going back to traditional packaging made of raw and natural materials.
