n case you haven’t already heard, Kilombero rice from Malawi has been recognised by The Ethical Consumer magazine as the most ethical rice on the market.
Mary Popple, the new Chair of JTS had this to say “We are delighted that Kilombero rice has come out on top. The combination of our very strong direct link with the farmers, encouragement in sustainable working practices, and our particular support of women farmers has helped us achieve this great result. We are extremely proud of this brilliant news and hope that it will enable us to grow the market for these Great Taste Award winning products.”
The next logical step in the evolution of Kilombero is to reduce our plastic usage and move it into ethical and sustainable packaging . We are seeking funds to carry out the required research, design and implementation of this project. Can you, or anyone you know, help us?
