Although Veetee began with a modest single product line, Supreme Basmati, the portfolio has expanded to incorporate a multitude of rices which are sourced from the most fertile regions of the world to produce the highest quality products. The addition of Thai Fragrant Rice in 1996 has cemented the dedication of the company to source rice from every continent.
