Volcano Rice is a mineral packed blend of traditional aromatic West Java rice grown on volcanic soils rich in magnesium, manganese and zinc essential minerals so often lacking in modern diets. A colorful blend of nutrient dense Sintanur brown rice and, whole grain red rice and lightly milled red rice that is reputed to restore vitality. It's no wonder the Javanese favor these healthy rice for their satisfying wholesome flavor. We're told that Sintanur, with a hint of vanilla like Pandan aroma, is such a favorite with Javanese that they take it along when visiting other islands. Volcano Rice can transform any rice dish into a more flavorful and nutritious meal. Volcano Rice is grown by a cooperative of Tasikmalaya family farmers using the System of Rice Intensification. With SRI they are able to increase their production and conserve their local rice biodiversity using less water, seed, land and no agrochemicals. The cooperative is one of the first in Indonesia to get the rice it produces certified as both organic and fair trade. In fact, it is the first rice to be imported to the US that qualifies for labeling as ""Fair for Life."" The standards for this certification, set by IMO (Institute for Market ecology), are perhaps the most stringent in the industry encompassing many social and environmental criteria as well the price premiums most people associate with fair trade. Due in large part to the benefits of the SRI growing methodology, the production and processing of the Volcano Rice surpassed the minimum required standards of IMO.
