Rice Miller

Part of the Bestway family, MAP Trading is the company behind the well-known brand ‘White Pearl’.  White Pearl was launched in 1992 as the first major importer of Basmati rice from Pakistan into the UK.  The rice is milled in the UK and packaged for sale to consumers via Bestway Wholesale and major supermarket outlets.

From beginnings within rice, the company developed into specialists in world foods, travelling the world to source the finest ingredients. Partnering with international suppliers, the products are continually being developed with new blends, flavours and under new brands.  Every grain within the rice comes from the best farmland in Punjab and the lentils and aromatic spices are expertly sourced with no compromise on quality.  This commitment to the highest standards means that White Pearl products deliver the true taste of a good curry time after time.

We now have a fantastic opportunity for a Rice Miller to join our team as we continue on our journey where both change and growth feature heavily and in this interesting position you will play a key part in continuing to make a difference to our MAP Trading manufacturing site situated at the rear of our Head Office in Park Royal, London (NW10 7BW).

Reporting to the Mill Manager your key responsibility will be to operate the Rice mill and monitor and control the milling conversion process from brown rice to finished white rice in conjunction with the laid down product specifications.
