There's no curry without rice…
When it comes to rice, we don't mess around. We take great care and pride in growing, picking, storing and perfecting our Basmati rice and we will never compromise the way Basmati rice should be.
If harvesting White Pearl Basmati rice is an art, savouring it is an art of living.
From the home of true Basmati, rice crafted as it should be…
No one knows Basmati rice like we do. And no one produces Basmati rice like ours.
Rice aficionados worldwide will know that no other rice can compare with the delicate aroma, delicious flavour and delightful tenderness of White Pearl Basmati rice. White Pearl Basmati Rice is recognised as the leading Pakistani Basmati Rice brand. And we have a Great Taste Award to prove it!
We have been producing Basmati rice for 24 years now, and we take great care in ensuring we craft our Basmati rice the way it should be…
And here's how we do it…
Basmati rice can only be grown in the foothills of the Himalayas, deep in the heart of the Punjab – and every grain of rice contained within a White Pearl bag comes from here. Every single grain.
Why is this important? Because only in the Punjab can you find the perfect climate to grow Basmati rice in. Here in the foothills of the Himalayas, the rice fields are washed by the fresh water that comes down from the 5 rivers of the Punjab, carrying with it a unique combination of minerals.
This creates the perfect soil, rich and fertile, to ensure we harvest the most perfect grains of Basmati rice.
We allow our rice to grow for longer – giving each grain as much time as it needs to reach that perfect length and consistency.
As the sun glares down, coating each grain in warmth, we wait patiently until it has turned that perfect golden colour.
Our highly-skilled and experienced local farmers pick a single variety of rice from a single region – the Punjab. Each grain is then handpicked and cared for by the local farmers whom we whole-heartedly support, ensuring that as we grow our rice, their communities grow with it.
Like the finest wines, champagne and whisky, Basmati rice requires the right amount of aging to develop nice, long grains and to enhance the aroma after cooking.
After every grain is picked, we carefully package the rice in traditional jute bags and leave them to age for 18 months – longer than any brand we know – in the unique climate of the Punjab, where the sun beats down and covers the grains in warmth to reduce the moisture level and ensure they mature better.
Unlike other brands, White Pearl retains a creamy, white colour – much like a pearl – and this is what makes our rice truly unique.
Our experienced millers mill our rice to perfection as if too little bran is removed, the rice remains brown and patchy. And if too much bran is removed, the rice will lost its taste, flavour and nutritional content. It is a fine balance.
So instead of producing a highly polished grain with a white appearance, we choose not to over-polish our rice so that each grain retains the valuable nutrients, mouth-watering flavour and irresistible aroma.
Finally, we undergo a careful quality control process whilst packaging the rice to make sure every bag of White Pearl rice has the lowest amount of broken rice in the market.
Moreover, we are one of the few brands who will not compromise on the consistency of our rice. Our customers can have full confidence that every bag of White Pearl Basmati rice contains a single variety of Basmati rice only. We do not mix or blend different varieties of rice, and nor will we.
If you need to remember one thing about our rice, remember this:
White Pearl Basmati Rice is a premium, single variety Basmati rice harvested solely from the original region where Basmati was grown – the fertile lands of the Punjab.
Everyone should experience the taste of true Basmati rice – Basmati rice crafted as it should be. And we will never compromise the way Basmati rice should be.
