LT Foods, the Indian company behind the Daawat and Royal brands of basmati rice, has revealed it is to open a rice product facility in the US.

In a filing with the Bombay Stock Exchange, LT Foods said it is inaugurating a facility in Houston in Teaxs to manufacture ready-to-heat rice products.

The “rationale for setting the facility is to diversify and take {the} lead in this growing segment”, the filing said.

LT Foods mills, processes and markets branded and non-branded basmati rice, as well as manufactures rice-based products, in its domestic market and for overseas. 

Its US subsidiary, LT Foods Americas, located in Cypress, California, was established in 1992 and imports basmati rice along with Thai Hom Mali Jasmine rice from Thailand, grape seed oil from Spain, and tea from Sri Lanka.

In June, LT Foods launched a rice processing facility in The Netherlands.
