Royal® Basmati Rice Celebrates Ramadan and Eid with the Community in New York, California and Illinois


Royal® Basmati Rice shared the spirit of giving this Ramadan by reaching out to communities at different locations in selected target markets in the US. During the last week of Ramadan, Royal® Basmati Rice brand ambassadors gave out free Iftar to Muslim communities in Chicago, IL; Staten Island, NY; and Garden Grove, CA. In addition, Royal®Basmati Rice provided, for free, henna applications for the Chaand Raat Mela in Brooklyn, NY on the eve of Eid, the biggest celebration in the Muslim world observed at the end of Ramadan.

The overall response of the program was very positive and Royal® Basmati Rice outreach to the local community was welcomed by all attendees. As part of the program, Royal® Basmati Rice hosted Iftar in selected mosques located in the heart of major community hubs, such as Devon Ave. in Chicago, IL. Most of these events were attended by a large audience who truly appreciated Royal® Basmati Rice’s involvement in the community. The events were promoted by the Imams of the mosque prior to the iftars as a sign of their appreciation for the company’s efforts.

As a leading food brand that works closely within these communities, Royal® brand is embracing the culture of its customers during the time of Ramadan and Eid. The Royal® Brand recognizes that their high quality food products are used in many Muslim households throughout the USA and this was their way of thanking this community for their loyalty and patronage in making Royal® products one of the best selling brands for basmati rice, chakki atta and tea.
