Kilombero long grain white rice is incredibly versatile, absorbing flavours, spices, and aromas when used in all kinds of dishes. Harvested in Malawi by smallholder farmers who are part of NASFAM (National Smallholder Farmers' Association of Malawi) a democratically governed organisation owned by its members — 60% of which are women. Every bag sold changes lives, and the farmers’ earnings from Kilombero rice are invested back into their farms, providing better food security and the means to support and pay for their children’s education.
