Dainty’s Kimora Calrose rice packaging design has been nominated for a 2021 Canadian PAC Award!


PAC was founded as the Packaging Association of Canada, and is a consortium of business’s fostering collaboration, innovation and education in packaging. The awards celebrate the power and excellence of packaging in innovation and brand marketing.


The creamy white japonica varietal, that is Calrose rice, inspired the matte background evoking rice paper. The other design elements nod to the respected rank which this superior California grown rice has garnered even in Asia. Kimora Calrose is Dainty’s star medium grain sticky style rice, perfectly suited for poke bowls, sushi and other Asian style recipes.
