ARLINGTON, VA – If it hasn’t arrived already, the latest issue of the USA Rice Whole Grain
should be in your mailbox soon, amid the many holiday cards and catalogs. And like those seasonal missives from family, friends, and favorite retailers, the Winter Whole Grain
is full of good tidings of great joy!
“You can read about the rejoicing in the U.S. rice industry after the first commercial sale of rice to China,” said Michael Klein, USA Rice vice president of marketing, communications, and domestic promotion, and the publication's editor. “This issue covers additional trade news as well, including a story about webinar outreach to our international markets after COVID-19 travel restrictions kept everyone home.”
There are reports on Rice To The Rescue, a new domestic program that offers needed relief to the restaurant industry, an update on the impact of back-to-back storms that tore through the mid-south growing region this past summer, the annual USA Rice financial report, and more.
“We’ve also got a review of the new children’s book, Daddy’s Got Dirt
, all about rice farming that would make a perfect stocking stuffer for the young folks on your gift giving list,” said Klein.
