Thailand is miffed at losing out to Cambodia for the award of best rice, suggesting it is a mistake caused by “inauthentic seeds”.
They neglect to mention that Cambodia already won the prize four times before.

Is it some sort of "blind test" where they vote purely on taste/ texture etc without knowing where it's from? I can just imagine the Thai panel's disgust when they find out they have voted for the "savages" to their east.
Silence, exile, and cunning.
