Better For People
Sourced from families farming around Lake Alaotra, Madagascar’s major inland lake. The 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 of the earth’s annual freshwater supplies.

Lotus Foods takes rice production beyond organic!
