In July 2019, Sun Valley Rice won a contract with a Chinese importer, making it the first U.S. rice producer to sell rice to China, reports WFMZ.

Sun Valley, a family-owned company based in Sacramento, CA, had been trying to break into the Chinese market for close to 15 years.

The company annually sells 250 million pounds of rice under half a dozen varieties. Beginning in the fall, the company will export roughly 88,000 pounds of its Calrose rice to Shenzhen Yintuo, a subsidiary of the Dragon Ocean Hing Group, in China
