I need to buy 600 pounds (yes, two zeroes) right away and that much (at least) on a monthly basis.

Does anyone know an importer of one of the better basmati rices?u

    You might do a search on Specialty Food.com, or check on LinkedIn for one of the specialty food import groups to find an importer or distributor to connect with.

      Anything from China [or possibly the world] is at alibaba. Here's the rice link:
