LITTLE ROCK, AR – That is, if you happen to be attending the USA Rice Outlook Conference here starting Sunday evening!
“The new issue will be included in each Outlook registration packet and, and along with rice industry news is a tribute to the many sponsors who generously support the conference,” said Whole Grain Editor Michael Klein. “You’ll see ads for each one, a gentle reminder for you to stop by their booths in the Exhibit Hall at the Statehouse Convention Center starting Sunday to check out all they have to offer.”
Alongside the ads you’ll find stories covering the USA Rice/Ducks Unlimited Rice Stewardship Partnership and the power of collaboration when it comes to sustainability results, the new Congressional Rice Caucus, and the rice-centric cooking contest that was the finale to the recent Foodservice Farm & Mill tour in Mississippi.
You’ll also read about this year’s International Rice Festival in Crowley, Louisiana, and get an insider’s look at the creation by local first-graders of a parade float covered from top to bottom with rice. And finally, a travelogue on the 2019 Think Rice Road Trip tells all about the truck crew’s trek around the mid-Atlantic giving out Aroma rice cookers and U.S.-grown rice at farmers markets, restaurants, and college campuses, plus two unique stops at a food and music festival in Delaware and a one-day only, pop-up shop in West Virginia.
The Rice Truck is making its final official appearance at Outlook where it will be raffled off on December 10. There’s still time to purchase tickets so click on the ad below for a chance to win the truck plus a suite of Aroma Housewares products.
