In October of 1936, N. W. Hutchings was one of the first in the country to package rice in individual, retail sized packages under the name ‘Rice Sales Company’. Before that, rice and dry beans were scooped up, weighed on a store scale and sold in bags to the end customer. The Rice Sales Company was founded in Mobile, Alabama.
The China Doll name actually came from a contest to name the brand in the 1950’s. All of our products are grown and packaged in the USA and have been since our founding. “We are home folks!” was our slogan in the beginning and it still rings true today.
Today we package rice and a wide variety of beans for the China Doll brand as well as the Dixie Lily and Southern Charm brands. Our brands can be found in stores all across the southeastern United States.
