There are more than 40,000 different varieties of rice. Of the 40,000 varieties, more than 100 are grown world-wide, but only around 10% are marketed and sold.
Bostrad Supply Chain Ltd. supplies all types of rice mainly from Vietnam and from other Orient countries.
Bostrad has achieved a market leadership position in the importation of rice through a longer-term strategy of gaining customer loyalty for its brands by focusing on reliabilty in it's supply operations.
Our success on rice has resulted in our logical integration with global leaders in rice technology and production.
Our global supply chains mean we can source from farmers for customers around the world, as well as supply the Nigerian domestic market directly from our 10,000-hectare rice farm.
The constant focus on the safety and security of our supplies have been critical to our success. Given increasing global population and environmental challenges we are also working with partners to support farmers on more sustainable production.
Since our operations began in 2009, we have expanded into almost every rice exporting country outside the United Kingdom.
Our origin teams are spread across India, Thailand, and Vietnam, as well as dedicated agents in Brazil, Argentina, Pakistan, and Myanmar. Focused on buying the best rice, they work with secure counter parties, and offer flexible contracting and strong logistics in developing markets. Our farmer training and processing expertise helps us to closely monitor and ensure that the rice maintains its quality throughout the entire operational process.
