Jorge Vieira of Garça Branca, is the man behind this brand of Portuguese Carolino rice.
"Portugal produces around 60% of the total rice that they consume per year, which is why it is rare to find this particular type of rice anywhere else.
Rice isn’t grown in the UK so nearly all of the rice we eat comes from India and Pakistan. This means a voyage by container ship of at least 6400 nautical miles via the Suez Canal. That is a lot of fuel miles; just over a quarter way around our planet Earth!
Hence our excitement to find Jorge and to offer you his beautiful rice. Not only can we support his work and his care for the land, but we can be satisfied in knowing that our rice has been transported overseas just 630 nautical miles and by a ship powered by the wind in its sails."
