Better For You: A colorful blend of prized traditional brown and red rice grown on West Java's mineral-rich volcanic soil. Aromatic and nutrient-dense, with minerals often lacking in modern diets, Volcanic Rice cooks in only 30 minutes producing moist and tender grains - transforming any rice dish into a special meal. Better for People: Volcano Rice is grown by members of the Simpatik Organik Cooperative, some 2,300 households farming small plots in Tasikmalaya, West Java. Our price premiums translate directly into more income, better health, and brighter prospects for these families. Better for the Planet: Flooding rice fields consumes up to 1/3 or the earth's annual freshwater supplies. Our producers use System of Rice Intensification (SRI) practices, which require a lot less water and seeds to produce more crop per drop. And drained fields emit little or no methane. We're taking rice production beyond organic! 50% les water + 90% less seed = 3 times more rice. More crop per drop. International Certification Services, Inc. Non GMO Project Verified.
