Retail or Wholesale Rice Selling

Posted by Manny on July 21st, 2007

selling ricePlanning to start a business by selling rice? You too can start a rice dealership by registering with the Department of Trade and Industry(DTI) for a single proprietorship, the Securities and Exchange Commissions(SEC) for a partnership or a corporation, or to the Cooperative Union of the Philippines if you are a member of a cooperative. You must also secure a license from the National Food Authority(NFA), the government agency that makes sure you have calibrated weighing scales, a storage area, rice boxes, and price tags indicating the variety of rice you’re selling. You also have to produce a green signboard bearing the name of your business and the NFA control number that’s at least 450 mm in width, 750 mm in length, and containing the NFA seal and your license is renewed annually.

You need a minimum investment of php30,000 to start retailing or wholesaling rice. And since this is a staple diet of us Filipinos, buyers are already there. If you are eager to start then here are some rice dealership business tips:

  • Build a good storage Bukbok or bol weevil is a natural enemy of rice because it is 90 percent starch. They make rice powdery so make sure you manage your warehouse properly.
  • First in first out policy – you should keep track of your inventory. The quality of rice will deteriorate if the storage exceeds three months.
  • Choose a good location – Study the area where you intend to set up your business. Know its consumers, their buying habits and your possible competitors. This will help you decide which varieties of rice to carry.
  • Deliver quality – Earn your customers trust by offering quality rice at all times.
  • Carry several varieties – to attract customers, they should see many choices but usually low cost rice is the top seller in the wet market.
  • Be prepared to loose – On some days you don’t make any sales, but hang on and persevere. There’s always tomorrow.
  • Invest in marketing – Call companies and sometimes get them through referrals. Marketing is important to your business. There are some long-term accounts when they were gone for some reason, so make sure you tap other clients to replace them.
  • Get insurance – You need cargo insurance when transporting your goods. Because sometimes there may be hijack and theft from people who climb trucks.

    hi. i want to start a rice retailing business, can you give me some advice.

  6. Manuel says:

    The tips are already written in the blog post above. If you want my advise, all I can say is you have to like what you are doing and passionate about it. Business have it’s ups and downs and the only thing that keeps you going is your passion.

  7. karen says:

    Is the margin of profit for a rice retailing business smallest in comparison to selling other basic food commodities? I’m sure the allowed markup is regulated, so it’s the volume of sales that would count with this business. Am I correct, sir? I’m thinking of selling rice in our area where people traffic is good— I hope you could give me a website resource for more tips. Thank you and God bless.

  19. G.Nagaseshareddy says:

    I am now supplying pure rice, I mean without mixing diffrent qualities in one bag to the customers directly at reasonble rates. But the customers are thinking about the cost but not the quality at the first instance. Once they are using rice then only they are satifying for their decision. Please give me some valuable tips to attract the customers to supply the pure rice at reasonable morgins as I am new to this profession.

  20. reyapot says:

    hi, nice blog you got here.. very informative.. and helpful.
    i am planning to put up my own business and this is one of the options i am looking at.. do you have tips or ideas how much would be the cost for processing the permits or the registration fees? one day processing lang ba yun sir? i hope you can share more tips about this business.. i would greatly appreciate it :-)


  21. Manuel says:


    I don’t think it’s a one day processing. It might take days to get a business permit. They have to inspect your business place first so I don’t think it will just be a one day processing.

  22. Gina Mallari says:

    hi there this is gina just want to ask kung panu magstart ng rice business. please send me the list of rice and prices. tingin nyo magkanu kayang puhunan ang kelangan dito?need your reply at / 09291493173

  23. Manuel says:

    @Gina Mallari

    Sorry I don’t sell rice. This is just a blog and only provides information. And with regards to the minimum investment. I already mentioned it on the post. It’s 30,000 pesos. Siguro depende rin kung gaano kalaki ang puhunan mo. pwede sigurong less than 30k.

  24. Mike says:

    I don’t get this. Is this retail or wholesale? Retailing and wholesale are two different beasts and should be split into two different categories. Whole-sellers are usually are the ones who buy palay, store it, and mill it. When they see a profit they contact an agent who will sell it at the right price. If you have a retail store, the agent will come to your store and give you a sample, you will then negotiate a price. The price depends on the quality and your ability to negotiate. These whole-sellers are usually the once who deliver the rice to your store. A truck is necessary if you are a whole-seller but not necessary if you are a retailer. 30,000 is not enough for a whole-seller, your cost of gasoline, labor etc. will outweigh your profit. Volume is key when it comes to whole-selling. If you are a retailer however, consider that for each sack of rice you will earn 50-200 pesos per sack, depending on negotiations again. If you have labor cost and rental cost subtract that from your profit. At the start of retail store you will definitely lose because you are not well known yet. But when you become recognized and people like your good business practice you may get stronger and earn more customers. At start, 30,000 can only buy you 20 sacks of rice, most whole-sellers will not bother giving different variety of rice, they will sell you one kind. Some aren’t even willing to deliver 20 sacks because it’s too few. Also consider at least 10-15,000 at the beginning based on misc. cost, construction, papers, etc. So that leaves you with 20,000 at best, which is less than 15 sacks of rice. 30,000 is nowhere near enough. I would say 150,000 for whole-sellers(truck not included), and 60,000 for retailers.

  25. Manuel says:

    Thanks for your input. Really appreciate it.

  26. gem says:

  28. can you help me how to make start rice retailing business?

  29. im ryan says:

    hi to all,,, aks q lng po kng anu dapat kunin na mga requirements. kasi po mag send skin mother q ng 18,000 kilo of rice from pakistan. at balak q sa na i bussiness un at ibnta q. sana po matulungan nio aq

  30. im ryan says:

    this is a nice blog infomative and very helpful like me to know about the business.thanks.i hope u will help me to my question.

  31. jing says:

    my plano po ako mag rice retail..pwede na po ba 30thou..sarili ko po ang ngaun po pinapakuha ako ng nfa permit..30k po ba ok na pasimulang puhunan?tnx

  32. Manuel says:

    @ jing
    Pwede na siguro yan. Depende lang sa tao kung magkano ang gusto niyang kitain. Wala ka naman sigurong maraming tauhan, mahirap lang ang mag-buhat ng sako sakong bigas pero yung pag-titinda ay kaya mo na sigurong mag-isa. So hindi masyadong malaki ang overhead expenses mo.

  33. Manuel says:

    @im ryan
    Pasensya na hindi ko gaanong alam yan kasi imported good at basic commodities pa. Malaki sigurong tax ang babayaran mo dyan at baka mahal mo na maibenta.

  34. wilma layug says:

    Sir gusto ko po sanang mag business ng bigas?magkano po kaya ang maging puhunan nito at pano mag umpisa?

  35. Mike says:

    O o, pwede na sa 30,000 since it is your place mismo. Personally I think it’s best to have different variety of rice, spotted, first class, and something in between. This will ensure that customers have options. In order to get this you may have to improvise. I highly doubt whole sellers will bother giving you different kinds. Try to see if you can order 5 of one kind and when they come back see if you can order 5 of a different kind. Again this is a little tough cause most whole sellers don’t like delivering a few sacks. The other option is buying from other retailers, they will most likely add 20-50 pesos per sack more than what they bought it for. So you have to make sure you can sell the retail at a higher price. Pwede ka mismo sa tendahan, this actually eliminates accounting cause your the one watching all your rice. If you sell rice per sack, just grab a laborer and pay him 5 pesos or less for baggage. To maximize your profit you might want to add a grocery in your store too.

    18,000 kilos, that is 360 sacks of rice. Are you sure your mom is sending you 360 sacks of rice? If so you should focus on whole selling it, retail will be too slow. You don’t want to hold on to rice for too long, rice probably has only 6 months shelf life, depending on storage condition, you may even see some moth worms within a few weeks of milling. So it’s best to just get rid of it ASAP. As far as whole selling rice, I don’t think you need anything, just go to the stores or grab an agent and sell it. Just be honest where it came from.

  36. Manuel says:

    Thanks Mike for the informative input. I need guys like you to liven up this blog. Thanks again!

  37. ryan says:

    yeah!its more than 360 sacks of rice every month from my mom at pakistan. can you give me some advice to my future bussiness how can i manage it?

    hi im thinking of selling rice here in my area. i was just wondering what is the price range that wholesalers will sell me their rice? I would also like to know what is the profit margin for this kind of business.

  46. Dianne says:

    Hi Manuel, came across with this site and i find it very helpful. I was wondering how much rice dealerships can make for a month?

  47. Manuel says:

    LIke any retail business, it depends on how many items you have and how well you make a sale. Maybe that is the reason why there is an amount set for the capital to make it feasible.

    Maraming maraming salamat brod sa mga nai-share mo. Malaking tulong yang mga sinabi mo sa mga gustong mag-umpisa ng rice retaining business.

Thanks again and I’m hoping you will visit often to help those who are interested in rice retailing business.

  64. ian paul says:

    @donna my advice to you is never trust anyone when it comes to a large amount of money, specially your relatives… kasi mas mahirap kung magkakasira kayo ng relative mo dahil lang sa pera.. i think what you rilly want is to help your sister but to also profit in what you will give… i suggest you give them a small capital, start a small business which is related to this kind of business like rice retailing, so that they would have the idea on this kind of business and also meet people which in the near future can be customer or business partners… now if you see they’re doing good in 3 to 4 years maybe then you can stop working abroad and do business with your sister this time it would be a bigtime… you wouldn’t expect how much you will profit in this business… sa totoo lang walang kalugi ang busness na to wag ka lang magpapaloko at magpapautang…. Goodluck

  65. ian paul says:

    @kristine, the price of rice depends on the quality not on variety so its hard to give a price of rice… kasi for example a C-18 or R-64 e2 yung mga bigas na maganda kaso kung hindi nmn polish or wholegrains mas mura dapat… tapos minsan medyo mataas ung percent ng broken yun yung durog masmura lalo yun kahit pa r-64 yan, so depende talaga sa quality ang price.. minsan may kasamang bato o palay pati nga ipa eh… pero may mga brand na maintained ang quality like joseph maharlika 1840 benta ko, blue dragon 1620, ung imported na whole grains 1350 ngayon tumaas kasi… good luck sa business mo..

  74. ciara_dhette says:

    We are a direct supplier of rice varieties from Victoria, Tarlac, we have thought that you might be interested to try our well-milled grains and to make us part of your business success through our products. We welcome wholesalers and retailers within Quezon City Area, Valenzuela, Obando, Meycauayan or Bulacan, Malabon and Manila.

  151. Benedict says:


    Good day to you. Censya na, Ngayon ko lang na-read yung post mo sa akin. Im here in Jeddah, KSA at plano ko nang umuwi sa April 2011 at mag stay for good at gusto kong mag start ng rice business. Naghahanap ako ng rice wholesaler na makukuhanan ko ng mababang presyo para naman makahabol ako sa retail marketing. Sa totoo lang I have so much interest about rice business kaya lang sobrang liit lang ng puhunan ko,, 75k lang at wala akong sasakyan to pick up wholesale rices from Tarlac, Bulacan etc… Since malapit ka lang sa lugar namin ditto sa , (Sto Tomas batanggas), at kung magkakasundo tayo sa mode of payment and conditions,,, pwede mo akong deliveran dito sa lugar namin…, At kung papayag ka sana, dahil sa maliit lang ang puhunan ko,,, sa bawat kuha ko sau ng mga bigas, is 50% cash only ,,, at ang kalahati ay consignment…, and free delivery, (charge free) … Kung okay sa iyo ang ganyang settlement, we can be a good partner. Basta ang inportante is maganda ang quality ng bigas natin, yung hindi tayo mapapahiya. and of course maibibigay mo sa akin in a rightful price in able for me to have a good profit.

    If ever kung papayag ka sa proposal ko,,, gusto kong malaman ang prices ng bigas mo (25 & 50 Kgs) in different variety. Till here na lang and hope you agree upon my conditions and have a good business together. Hope you will keep in touch. Thanks

    I learned a lot. Now i have ideas on how to start a rice business.

  164. verns says:

    we intend to move back to philippines for good and my hubby has the interest to start a small bussiness. He suggested that we should start on rice selling bussiness. We’re both no experience in running our own bussiness coz’ we’ve been living abroad for many years. I know it is tough for us to start all over again esp. if we don’t even have any knowledge in bussiness. My question is how much is the capital we should have in hand to start a rice selling bussiness? pls. reply.thanks.

  165. Sandra says:

    You cld start as a Sole Proprietorshhip by registering at the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) located along Buendia near corner Makati Ave. Bring ID pics and indicate a small capital of P10,000 in the registration form. The Registration papers will be release about 2 weeks. Then, go to City Hall and secure a form for Mayor’s Permit. Complete the requirements. Then, go to the Bureau of Internal Revenue for registration and get your VAT No.All these expenses for registration shld only cost you less than P 5,000. Exclusive of printing expenses for the Official Receipts.

  240. Kristofer Juan Belleza says:

    Hi… its been a quite while since I visited this site or page. I have read all your inquiries regarding rice industries or rice dealership.

    I humble my self to guide you in your plans to engage in this line of business. Retailing a rice business does not require a large amount of capital.
    The only hindrance is an honest and good supplier of rice willing to extend service”s to accommodate small enterprise with a very minimal quantity of order.
    Hence, the prices from milling company to small entities are way higher adding burdens with them while giving a higher profitable income with middle man or agents.
    We can not blame milling company to this kind of system. Needless to say-with this we can maximize our income while avoiding expenses from small scale businesses.

    Our MISSION is to innovate the traditional way of selling our products by extending services to small scale enterprise maximizing their profitability while giving a reasonable and profitable returns with our company.

    Our VISION extending the quality of well milled rice to every market with minimal cost offered to accommodate the needs of the small scale rice industries.

    i hope this is usefull to others!!
    God Bless Us All!!

  252. NFA Dealer says:

    Just want to share my experience

    According to the BNRS guide the mark up is 15%

    15% is ideal and i would love to have the same mark up. but it isn’t realistic.

    Since NFA prices could be verified i’ll use it a an example to compute the realistic mark up for rice retailing

    the cost of goods is PHP1250 per sack or PHP25 per kilo
    the selling price is PHP1400 per sack or PHP28 per kilo
    that is a just 10% mark up

    the mark up is even lower for customers who would buy per sack
    the mark up would be PHP20 to PHP50 per sack.
    That would only be a 2% to 5% mark up.

    If other dealers were able succeed with a higher mark up please share some tips and strategy as would love to learn.

  338. Joseph says:

    Hi everyone, i came accross your blog site because i am starting my rice dealership in Pampanga. I made used of my inherited farm from my parents. I am now living in Canada. I know how hard it is to start a business specially if you do not have enough capital to sustain your operation and your retailing.
    The good news is that i am willing to help people who wants to start their rice retailing business with small capital. My objective is simple: Help you build your retailing busines while you are introducing me to your friends who want to do the same.
    Contact me at or you can visit my farm anytime at your convenience.

  339. Joseph says:

    Starting a business is not so simple. You have to have a fixed source of income to sustain your operation specially if you are renting a space for your business and is paying an employee. I know this because i have my other business in retailing. If i am not working abroad i assumed that my first business is now closed.
    You have to keep in mind that in starting a business you must understand that the first two years of that is basically establishing your business. You won’t earn much, or sometimes you will not earn at all.
    when you established your business, and people knws about it, then that’s the start of the happy days for you.
    Be passionate with what you do! When you plan to start your business, be ready for challenges. Goodluck friends!

    The best way to sell rice is to find a sustainable customer, such as canteens and restaurant. Repeat order is the key to maintain a predictable monthly sales which will be the basis of your inventory. Of course you also have to know the preference of your customer.

    Hi!! to all…

    Like this blog .. i learn a lot.. sana naman may alam kayo pwede mag supply dito sa cebu city.. please leave ur email add..

  344. Joseph says:

    1. Start-up capital
    For rice retailing, invest atleast 5-10 sacks of rice of different kinds. Remember, your first few months is buyilding -client months. Do not expect a good return in here that fast. But You have to make sure that your passion is there. Do not lose hope, starting the business is the hardest part. Once you will get clients, everything will follow.
    2. Reserve capital
    This will be used for place rental, second orders, employee salaries if you have, and your needed m,aterials for your business. If i were you, sit-down for a day and make your own business plan. List your plans, your marketing/selling strategies. Star with your friends and Families as your first CUSTOMERS.
    3. Marketing Style/Strategies
    List all the people you know that you can sell your rice. They will be your first clients. They will not say no if they will need to buy rice on that day. Avoid “Rice now, Pay later”
    4. Search for suppliers that can provide a good payment scheme. Example: Buy 20 rice, pay for the 10 sacks and make the others payable for a period of time.
    5. Be Professional
    Present yourself well with conviction and dignity.

    To be followed…..

  351. janeve says:

    Good day po

    I am from Cagayan de Oro. I really wanted to start a buy and sell rice business. My estimated capital is 40k. I already have target dealer from bukidnon and delivery is free of charge since they are relative of my boyfriend. I really don’t have time for selling it by kilo so I plan to contanct companies that can get rice sacks.

    I would like to ask if rice sack distribution is better than rice retailing by kilo. I am working so I can’t really manage a small store.

    And does this buy and sell rice business need to have DTI and NFA permit?

    I would really appreciate your feedback
