Violet Rice - Small Things Fair Trade

Violet Rice

Regular price $9.50

A rare variety of violet-colored sticky rice. Sticky rice is commonly used for desserts or for savoury dishes. This rice will provide a satisfying, hearty base

All our rices are grown in the ancient rice terraces of the northern Philippines. Each is distinct in flavor, texture and color. Supporting seed diversity and organic farming, this Fair Trade project is interested in preserving these rich food systems.

Historical Rice Terraces: In 1995, UNESCO designated five of the rice terraces in the Cordillera Mountains as a World Heritage Site in the category of "Living Cultural Landscape". 

Direct Fair Trade Premiums:  40% of the price we pay for rice goes to support Rice Inc in their effort to build this project. Their capacity building efforts include visiting farmers, providing workshops and training, organizing co-operatives etc.

Description: Red, long-grain rice with a mild flavou.
