The goodness of rice - creating sustainable communities
At SunRice we believe in the inherent goodness of rice. It supports Australian agriculture, supports farmers, sustains lives and sustains the health of communities.
With nearly 70 years of operation in the NSW Riverina, we understand what investing in our communities looks like and what it can mean to those living there. In years of normal rice production, a strong SunRice delivers close to $400 million per annum directly into the Riverina region of NSW and supports 600+ growers, 600+ employees and 400+ local suppliers. SunRice also supports local causes with an annual $700,000 for social impact spending - regional sponsorship, community engagement, training & development.
Rice is grown on every continent on earth, except Antarctica.
The Australian rice industry is a world leader in production efficiency, water use efficiency and environmental sustainability.
We have been growing rice here for over 100 years and have
established a vibrant and efficient industry incorporating years of
Australian expertise and know how. As a direct result of our R&D
investment, Australian grown rice uses 50% less water than the global
average and we achieve amongst the highest yields in the world.
