Near East's garlic and herb pilaf is a savory blend of long grain rice and toasted orzo pasta with garlic, oregano, thyme and basil. It's a delicious and convenient complement to any meal.
Near East® started in 1962 in Worcester, MA as a small, family-owned company. George and Hannah Kalajian immigrated from Armenia to the United States and set up a grocery store in 1940. Hannah served her specialty: roasted chicken and Armenian-style rice pilaf. A tasty combination of rice, orzo pasta, and seasoning, the pilaf quickly became so popular that Hannah began to package it - filling bags of pilaf mix by hand in her home kitchen. As demand rapidly increased, more help was added and a growing number of food distributors helped to sell the product. Today the Near East® family of products includes more than 30 different flavors and varieties of rice pilafs, couscous, and other grain dishes, all with the same high-quality ingredients, care and handling that Hannah put into the first pilaf. Our easy-to-prepare products offer you a variety of great tastes and authentic flavors from around the world.
