The history of Tilda
The Tilda story begins in the 1970s. Throughout this decade, communities from all over the world arrived in Britain. In a bid to create the highest quality aromatic Basmati rice, based on authentic ingredients, Tilda became the first brand to introduce this primary cooking ingredient to the Western world, and the UK shelves. By the 1980s, curry was now a national favourite, with consumers becoming inspired to cook Indian food at home on a more regular basis. Tilda ingeniously tapped into this growing trend in popularity, and strengthened its position as the leading Basmati brand.
In 1988, their factory relocated to Rainham, now a state-of-the-art rice mill and packing hall (this remains the home of Tilda Ltd today). During the 90s, they successfully launched in the Middle East and North America, and are currently proud to sit at the heart of dinner tables across more than 50 countries worldwide. Committed to providing rice connoisseurs with only the highest quality products, Tilda also became the first rice brand to offer customers an easy-to-carry handle and zip lock within their packaging. Becoming a partner of the United Nations World Food Programme in 2012, they also provide funding for at least one nutrition-boosting meal for new and expectant mothers with every Pure Basmati Rice pack purchased.

Ensuring only the best grains make their way to your table, Tilda use over half a century’s experience and expertise to DNA test every batch of Basmati for guaranteed purity. Aging the rice naturally in the sun, with a gentle milling process, extra care is always taken to remove broken grains that release the starch that causes rice to be sticky.
