Basmati acquires better cooking characteristics and stronger aroma when matured over a period of nine months to a year. It is therefore critical that the rice is properly matured before processing.
PREC therefore has a strict policy to build up stocks at the time of harvest and carry-on the maturation process under expert control. The company does not rely on the market purchase on order to order basis.
Stocks of rice are placed at PREC’s spacious godowns at Kamoki and Karachi. Well-ventilated, these godowns have been constructed specifically to store rice under hygienic conditions. During maturing period, stocks are subjected to periodic inspection and fumigation from time to time under experts’ supervision for protection against infestation by organisms.
