Congratulations to ARROZGUA, the Guatemalan Rice Association, on their 25th anniversary. ARROZGUA was founded in 1997 as a non-profit organization that represents both Guatemalan producers and millers. The US Rice Producers Association is proud of the long working relationship and friendship over the years in our joint efforts to promote rice for Guatemalan consumers.
Today, Guatemalan consumption is growing, and consumers are more aware of the benefits of eating rice. The organization has consistently created innovative promotional programs to increase rice consumption, particularly with the school nutrition program that teaches school cooks and mothers the benefits of adding rice to their diets.
On behalf of the USRPA board members and staff, a very special thank you to ARROZGUA for their continued support and efforts in promoting U.S. rice. We look forward to another successful 25 years of partnership and know you will continue to represent your members well!
