RiceTec Renews Commitment to Rice Leadership Development Program

Date Posted: April 9, 2013

Houston, Texas—RiceTec is proud to announce that it has renewed its agreement to sponsor the Rice Leadership Development Program in 2014.

Funded by industry grants to The Rice Foundation and managed by the USA Rice Federation, the Rice Leadership Development Program is designed to educate rice producers and industry-related personnel on all the facets of the rice industry.

During the two-year program, selectees travel to the major rice- producing areas of the US and observe all aspects of rice production, processing, marketing, and logistics.

On the final stop, class members visit Washington D.C. and visit key lawmakers and regulators.

“As an alumnus of the program, I’m very excited that RiceTec is once again able to support this program.

"It has had a tremendous impact on my life and career and I’ve seen firsthand the benefits of the program to the industry,” says Brian Ottis, Marketing and Client Support Manager at RiceTec.
