Organic Volcano Rice is a colorful blend of prized traditional brown and red heirloom rice grown on West Java’s mineral-rich volcanic soil. Fragrant and nutrient-dense, Volcano Rice cooks in only 30 minutes producing moist and tender grains with an aromatic hint of vanilla. It’s an excellent choice for any dish where you would use a wild rice or whole grain blend. Our Volcano Rice is grown with SRI farming practices (what we call More Crop per Drop™) on small family plots by members of the Simpatik Organik Cooperative. Our price premiums translate directly into more income, better health and brighter prospects for these families.
