Welcome to our bulk rice section. Here you will find our most popular sacks of rice: if we are missing your favourite, let us know and we may be able to source it for you.
Buying rice by the sack, no matter what the type, is a good way to shop: rice keeps well, does not tend to get damaged in transit, and is a good staple food. Having a sack of your favourite rice in stock offers many advantages.
As with any bulk purchase, buying rice in bulk gives you the following benefits:
All in all, there is a strong justification for buying your rice in 25kg sacks, especially if you combine this order with other ingredients to get free delivery.
Which rice you choose to buy in bulk is ultimately a matter of personal choice. We have listed the ones we sell most of in this section, but if the rice you want is not listed, let us know, and we may be able to get it in a 25kg sack. The main rices we offer are:
If you cannot see the variety of rice you want in the bulk section, please ask and we will try to source it for you. We are always pleased to hear from customers, as the products we list are driven by what our customers want, especially in the area of bulk food purchases.
Although the ultimate choice is with the purchaser, for personal preference, I would go for the brown basmati: it has great flavour, cooks easily, is versatile and combines well in most dishes. There is an argument that white rice lasts longer than brown, but if, like us, you eat a fair amount of rice, brown rice simply does not have the chance to go stale, as we don't take the next bulk sack of rice home until the previous one is getting towards the end.
Buying in your rice in bulk reduces packaging, making it the environmentally friendly choice. Rice, like most grains, has a long shelf-life, but it can still go stale in the end, and may be prone to insect infestation if not properly stored. Below are some steps you might want to take, to keep the rice you have purchased from us in the best condition:
Bulk grains and rice are best stored in a cool, dark place, such as a pantry or cabinet. Direct sunlight and high temperatures can cause them to go stale and lose their flavour and nutritional content. Most grains are best used within a few months of purchase. You can extend this by a few more months by keeping grains in the freezer. It is not recommended to store bulk grains for more than a year.
As you have purchased good quality rice, you need to make the most of it, so don't forget to store it correctly.
