Thailand is the top rice exporting country in the world, averaging 6 million tons a year. Thai white rice is grown throughout the country, the best and most bountiful of today's crop being cultivated in Thailand's central plains. With the advantages of a well-established irrigation system and the increasing application of advanced technologies, this region can yield two or even three crops annually in some areas, giving a regular year-round output. Central Thailand, which consists of the fertile plains surrounding the Chao Phraya River, is the country's most populous region known as the rice bowl of Asia. Alesie has chosen this region as a source to provide our customers with Thailand's best quality rice.
