Tilda manufactures England’s top – selling rice since 1970. For over 30 years, Tilda is committed to preserve this legendary rice. Basmati remains at the heart of Tilda and the company is committed to only select the finest Basmati for all its products.
Tilda refuses to blend with inferior grains. For many years Tilda has worked hand-in-hand with the Basmati farming community and has taken on the mantle of guardianship of this precious grain.
Tilda supports more than 10,000 independent farmers, each of whom are known by name, and provides free advice on the cultivation, propagation and harvesting of Basmati, enabling them to secure a fair price in the marketplaces.
Tilda selects the unique, fragrant and delicate Basmati grain from the Himalayan foothills, the only place on earth where pure Basmati can be grown.
Each year Tilda provides farmers with certified Pure Basmati seed at no profit. In its quest for the very best Basmati, Tilda employs the latest DNA fingerprint technology and checks every batch of rice for purity.
To this day Tilda remains a family business employing some 200 people in the UK and is proud of its reputation for uncompromising quality and a commitment to sustaining the legendary status of Basmati and the Tilda Basmati brand worldwide.
The story of Tilda is one of unbroken success. Tilda was the first company to bring Basmati to the Western World and has become an international food brand selling in over 50 countries.
Tryfon Tseriotis and Tilda have been business partners for the Cypriot market since 1994.
