Vietnam's ST25 rice was for the first time used to process dishes on the menu of the Japanese Cabinet Office, according to Vietnamese Trade Counselor in Japan Ta Duc Minh.

ST25, a high-end rice variety produced in Vietnam, was used in the fried rice dishes during Friday’s lunchtime at the Japanese Cabinet Office.

Nikkokutrust Company, a major enterprise specializing in providing meals at schools and offices in Japan, succeeded in bringing ST25 rice into the kitchen of the Cabinet Cabinet, Minh stated.

A representative of Spice House Company, a distributor of ST25 rice in Japan, said that ST25 won the title of the World's Best Rice in 2019 and is trusted by many consumers.

Therefore, Spice House decided to cooperate with Kiraboshi Bank and Suntomi International Company to bring ST25 rice from Vietnam to the Japanese market.

In order for ST25 rice to enter the Japanese market, Vietnamese enterprises must meet more than 600 strict technical standards and very high requirements of Japanese consumers, according to Trade Counselor Minh.

At the Japanese Cabinet Office, the brochures about ST25 rice provide information on the cultivation, quality monitoring, harvesting, packaging, and management of the rice variety.

ST25 rice can be used in dishes such as grilled chicken rice and fried rice, a harmonious combination of Vietnam's agricultural products and Japanese cuisine, Minh stated.

The introduction of Vietnam’s high-quality agricultural products to the Japanese market through influential agencies, units, and people will help these products win the hearts of local consumers.

The entry of ST25 rice into the Japanese Cabinet Office is a step forward for Vietnamese rice to gain a foothold in this market, the official explained.
