CHANG – The Loving Rice
Supporting organic farming and products is a social responsibility. We respect the laws of nature; thus, we thrive on sustainability and the concept of eco-harmony. Organic farming revitalizes Planet Earth, heals our eco-system, protects our forests and harmonized the fragile relationship between humans and the Earth.
We work closely with IQS, Maejo University, to develop an agriculture methodology using a unique combination of micro-organisms and enzymes.
This combination creates a caring and harmonious relationship with Planet Earth, thus producing healthier rice. Our holistic farming practices conserve nature, empower the Earth and its people to coexist, and at the same time, enhance the productivity of our farmers.
We collaborate with small scale, indigenous farmers in Northern Thailand. They are our pioneers in the rice project and embody our spirit of pursuing excellence and quality.
