We’re working with farmers, governments, customers and civil society partners to improve sustainability across rice supply chains.
Rice cultivation is a leading contributor to climate change, emitting 10% of all global man-made methane emissions and is a significant consumer of water, while being a key source of nutrition and income for millions of small-scale farmers.
We’ve formed partnerships with national governmental and international organisations such as GIZ, the Thai Rice Department and the NAMA facility, to implement projects that verify solutions on the ground, before scaling up solutions. Our outgrowers’ project in Ubon Ratchathani, Thailand, has produced the world’s first sustainable rice, fully verified by a third-party.
To make a tangible impact on livelihoods, we’re seeking to improve farming communities by investing in public goods, improving the reach of our rice farm vocational training centre, distributing better inputs and developing farming communities in Nigeria.
