We ethically source all our boutique rice from growers who do not use synthetic pesticides and herbicides which threaten insect populations, contaminate water sources and can have ecosystem-wide knock-on effects. We accept that rice is a carbon-intensive carbohydrate but not nearly as high as that generated by animal farming, and therefore more sustainable in terms of ensuring the welfare of our environment. When we accept a submission from a rice grower we consider carefully how the rice growing affects the surrounding animal husbandry.
