Singapore, 18 May 2016 – The Health Promotion Board has identified white rice as a contributing factor to diabetes and is encouraging consumers to turn to healthier alternatives such as brown rice. Pan Pacific Hotels Group is committed to support this cause by making healthier food options readily available at our dining outlets. Starting today, the restaurants at all our Singapore hotels will offer diners a choice of cooked brown or white rice. We are also pleased to offer a mix of brown and white rice should diners request for it. This service is also available for in-room dining and comes at no additional charge.
