Objective: To provide small-scale rice farmers in Northeastern Thailand with higher income,
while creating a scalable organic supply of nutritious rice
Siam Organic (SO) sells a range of products, including organic Jasberry rice targeted to middle-income and health conscious consumers in Thailand, with aspirations for international markets. Working with two cooperatives in the Yasothon and Roi-Et provinces, SO provides farmers with Jasberry seeds and guarantees a premium price for the organic crop output. In addition, the enterprise supplies high quality organic fertilizers, facilitates knowledge-sharing sessions, and supports seed-breeding activities for these farmers. SO’s holistic support allows farmers to enjoy better yield, lower costs, higher prices, and greater sales.
