Matco Rice

Matco Rice is a name synonymous with the heritage of Pakistan. Founded by Syed Sarafaraz Ali Ghori in 1964, Matco supplied rice processing plants and machinery to the Government of Pakistan and has to its credit some of the earliest rice processing plants set up by the Rice Export Corporation of Pakistan (RECP). In 1970, at a time when direct export of rice were not allowed in the private sector, Matco set up it’s own rice processing plant in Larkhana, Sindh and sold processed rice to RECP, the exclusive Government controlled export body.

Today, Matco is an ISO 9001:2000, HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point), BRC (British Retail Consortium), WQA (WOOLWORTHS QUALITY ASSURANCE STANDARD) certified and United States FDA (Food & Drug Administration) approved company and has recently received the OK KOSHER Certification
