It would be very interesting to know where this "degraded Rice" originally came from.

But I bet we will never be told that information, will we.

The degraded rice came from the warehouses and silos where it was improperly stored.

Prior to that it was good rice of different grades from the ricefields of Thailand (and maybe the next door neighbors.)

It came from the national zoo, where it was forced to wear a bikini and have a boxing match with degraded orangutans. The rice lost.

So, I suppose that the ones that are considering making rice whiskey doesn´t qualify as a bidder! LOL

I mean it doesn´t matter what quality the rice holds for that bad tasting, mentally ill resulting out of this world product.

" All buyers are required to declare what the rice will be used to produce in order to qualify for the bidding."

Will there be any follow up to see if the declarations match reality? I think we can make a pretty good guess as to the answer
