Standard Chartered Private Equity (SCPE) has invested Rs 110 crore (about $ 25 million) in Bush Foods Overseas Private Ltd (BFOPL), a basmati rice company.

We are delighted to partner with Bush Foods, a leading player in the basmati rice segment with a premier customer base, robust supply chain, quality products and brands, strengths that are also well recognised by its global customer base,” Mr Rahul Raisurana, Managing Director, SCPE, said in a statement here on Wednesday.
