NutraCea, a health science company, supplies stabilized rice bran and rice bran based products in the premium consumer food and animal feed sectors. Its products include food supplements and medical foods (nutraceuticals), which provide health benefits for humans and animals based on stabilized rice bran and stabilized rice bran derivatives and rice-bran oils. The company offers products for consumer nutrition and healthcare companies, domestic and international food companies, and companion animal feed manufacturers.
In February 2008, the company acquired 100% of Irgovel - Industria Riograndens De Oleos Vegetais Ltda., which owns and operates a rice bran oil processing facility in South America.
The companys products include NutraCea Stabilized Rice Bran: Stable whole rice bran and germ. This is basic SRB product that is both a food supplement and an ingredient for cereals, baked goods, companion animal feed, health bars. It is also the base material for producing NutraCea Solubles, oils, and NutraCea Fiber Complex; NutraCea Stabilized Rice Bran Fine: This is the same product as the NutraCea SRB, except that it has been ground to a particle size that would pass through a 20 mesh screen. It is used primarily in baking and pasta applications; NutraCea Stabilized Rice Bran Extra Fine: This is the same product as the NutraCea SRB, except that it has been ground to a particle size that would pass through an 80 mesh screen. It is used primarily in baking and pasta applications; Dextrinized Rice Bran (RiBalance): A modified carbohydrate converted NutraCea SRB that is more functional in baking and mixed health drink applications. This product contains all of the nutrient-rich components of NutraCea SRB; NutraCea RiSolubles: A highly concentrated water dispersible carbohydrate and lipid rich fraction component of NutraCea SRB. This product contains only a small amount of fiber and is a concentrated form of the vitamins and nutrients found in NutraCea SRB; NutraCea Fiber Complex (RiFiber): Nutrient-rich insoluble fiber source with associated nutrients. This product, designed for use by the baking and health food markets, is the remaining ingredient when NutraCea SRB is processed to form NutraCea Solubles; and NutraCea Baby Cereal: A comprehensive line of signature branded and private label baby cereals, marketed both to domestic and international customers. Available in Organic or conventional grains, these cereals would be fortified and/ or fruited to meet customer needs.
Further refining NutraCea SRB into oil and its by-products would produce NutraCea Rice Bran Oil, NutraCea Defatted Bran (DRB), and Higher Value Fractions. NutraCea Rice Bran Oil: Nutrient-rich oil made from NutraCea SRB. This oil has high smoke and flash points which provides a very long fry life, is not readily absorbed into food, is naturally trans fat free, and provides nutritional qualities. It is sold into consumer, food services, and industrial segments; NutraCea Defatted Bran (DRB): Low fat bran that does not contain rice bran oil. This is a product designed for use by the baking industry for its high fiber nutritional benefits which include a balanced amino acid profile, high fiber content, and high mineral content; and Higher Value Fractions: Nutraceutical-like compounds naturally occurring in NutraCea SRB and Rice Bran Oil that provide specific health benefits. Tocopherols, tocotrienols, gamma oryzanol, lecithin, and phytosterols are some of the antioxidant-rich fractions that are found in rice bran and are enhanced by stabilization. Gamma oryzanol has a range of uses as a nutraceutical.
The company purchases rice from multiple suppliers, including Farmers Rice Cooperative in Sacramento, California; ADM Rice in Arbuckle, California; Louisiana Rice Mill in Mermentau, Las Angels; Farmers Rice Milling in Lake Charles, Louisiana; and American Rice, Inc. in Freeport, Texas.
The companys competitor includes Producers Rice Mill.
NutraCea was founded in 2000.

SWOT, which stands for Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats, is an analytical framework that identifies the internal and external factors that are favorable and unfavorable for a company.
Enhanced SWOT Analysis
Enhanced SWOT is a 3×3 grid that arranges strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats into one scheme:
- How to use the strengths to take advantage of the opportunities?
- How to use the strengths to reduce likelihood and impact of the threats?
- How to overcome the weaknesses that obstruct taking advantage of the opportunities?
- How to overcome the weaknesses that can make the threats a reality?
Upon answering these questions a company can develop a project plan to improve its business performance.
PESTEL (also termed as PESTLE) is an ideal tool to strategically analyze what influence different outside factors – political, economic, sociocultural, technological, environmental and legal – exert on a business to later chart its long term targets.
Being part of the external analysis when carrying out a strategic assessment or performing a market study, PESTEL gives an overview of diverse macro-environmental factors that any company should thoughtfully consider. By perceiving these outside environments, businesses can maximally benefit from the opportunities while minimizing the threats to the organization.
Key Factors Examined by PESTEL Analysis:
- Political – What opportunities and pressures are brought by political bodies and what is the degree of public regulations’ impact on the business?
- Economic – What economic policies, trends and structures are expected to affect the organization, what is this influence’s degree?
- Sociological – What cultural and societal aspects will work upon the demand for the business’s products and operations?
- Technological – What impact do the technological aspects, innovations, incentives and barriers have on the organization?
- Environmental – What environmental and ecological facets, both locally and farther afield, are likely to predetermine the business?
- Legal – What laws and legislation will exert influence on the style the business is carried out?
IFE, EFE, IE Matrices
The Internal Factor Evaluation matrix (IFE matrix) is a strategic management tool helping audit or evaluate major weaknesses and strengths in a business’s functional areas. In addition, IFE matrix serves as a basis for identifying and assessing relationships amongst those areas. The IFE matrix is utilised in strategy formulation.
The External Factor Evaluation matrix (EFE matrix) is a tool of strategic management that is typically utilised to assess current market conditions. It is an ideal instrument for visualising and prioritising the threats and opportunities a firm is facing.
The essential difference between the above mentioned matrices lies in the type of factors incorporated in the model; whilst the latter is engaged in internal factors, the former deals exceptionally with external factors – those exposed to social, political, economic, legal, etc. external forces.
Being a continuation of the EFE matrix and IFE matrix models, the Internal External matrix (IE matrix) rests upon an investigation of external and internal business factors integrated into one suggestive model.
Porter Five Forces Analysis
The Porter’s five forces analysis studies the industry of operation and helps the company find new sources of competitive advantage. The analysis surveys an industry through five major questions:
- What composes a threat of substitute products and services?
- Is there a threat of new competitors entering the market?
- What is the intensity of competitive rivalry?
- How big is the bargaining power of buyers?
- How significant is the bargaining power of suppliers?
VRIO stands for Value, Rarity, Imitability, Organization. This analysis helps to evaluate all company’s resources and capabilities and bring them together into one aggregate table that includes:
- Tangible resources
- Intangible resources
- Innovation and Creativity
- Organizational capabilities
The result of the analysis gives a clear picture of company’s competitive and economic implications, answering the questions if the resources mentioned above are:
- Costly to imitate?
- Organized properly?
