What is Royal Umbrella?
Royal Umbrella is a brand of premium Thai Jasmine Rice (Hom Mali) that is cultivated, processed, and packaged using Thailand’s finest natural resources and expertise. Grains are carefully selected from the best rice fields and processed under stringent procedures to ensure the highest international standards. Royal Umbrella offers three signature products:

  • Thai Hom Mali Rice (Royal Umbrella Red)
    Made from the best-quality Jasmine rice that is harvested only once a year. Royal Umbrella Red boasts a beautiful Jasmine fragrance and a soft texture that maintains its integrity for every staple meal.
  • Thai Jasmine Rice (Royal Umbrella Green)
    Light Jasmine fragrance with a unique aroma, and a soft and sticky texture once cooked. A premium choice for the perfect meal.
  • Fragrant Rice (Royal Umbrella Orange)
    An affordable fragrant rice that is aromatic with a soft texture can be enjoyed longer when cooled down.

Royal Umbrella is produced under the highest of international standards developed by C.P. Intertrade (CPI), a company that sustainably trades numerous products from food to raw industrial materials. CPI was established in 1979 as a subsidiary of the Charoen Pokphand Group of Companies and was promoted by the board of Investment of Thailand.

In addition, CPI’s Sustainable Rice Program aims to reduce the carbon and water footprint of rice. This is done through research on greenhouse gas management in each step of the production process and streamlining supply chains to develop an eco-friendly planting system for Thai Hom Mali Rice that ensures high yields in each harvest.
