Rice forms an important part of the Middle Eastern cuisine, and is considered as a staple food along with wheat, particularly in the GCC countries.

Amongst the different varieties, basmati rice is considered as the most popular type of rice which is mainly grown in the foothills of the Himalayas. It is valued for its long and slender grains, delicate aroma and distinct taste. Basmati rice is extensively used in a number of lavish rice-based dishes containing layers of rice, meat, sauces and dried fruits. Owing to this, the countries in the GCC region have become the major importers of basmati rice from India and Pakistan. According to This latest report, titled “GCC Basmati Rice Market: Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2021-2026”, the GCC basmati rice market reached a value of US$ 2.12 Billion in 2020.
