About us

Parish Rice was founded in 2019 by Michael Frugé, a second-generation farmer in Eunice, Louisiana. While working with the LSU Agriculture Center, Frugé began planting and harvesting a variety of rice called Frontier – a high protein rice with the lowest glycemic index value of any white rice on the market.

At Parish Rice, the goal is to not only provide nutritious, sustainable, and great-tasting Louisiana-harvested rice but also to educate consumers on where their food originates and how important sustainability is to the future of agriculture in America.

Parish Rice is perfect for anyone trying to eat healthier while still enjoying their current lifestyle. Whether you have health concerns, such as diabetes or health issues, are an athlete in training, or just want to feel better about what you’re eating, Parish Rice is the perfect choice for you and your family.
