In the heart of Longsheng, our cherished rice fields thrive amidst awe-inspiring mountains. This month, we're delighted to share a pivotal moment in our journey as the organic certification body inspected the cultivation practices of our dedicated Red Yao Farmers.
These farmers are on a remarkable path toward organic certification for their rice. Achieving this certification isn't easy; it demands unwavering commitment to stringent standards, including the complete avoidance of chemicals and pesticides, strict waste management, and a dedication to maintaining high water quality.
Through our close involvement with this project, we've witnessed their inspiring progress. Their dedication to sustainable and organic farming practices is a testament to their respect for the land and tradition. Although the journey is challenging, their unwavering spirit is paying off.
Becoming organic certified will not only preserve their traditions but also strengthen their competitiveness in the market, ultimately improving their economic security. This aligns perfectly with the core goals of our Beautiful Reason Initiatives – supporting communities in achieving economic independence and preserving their unique way of life.
As we look ahead to the future, we're filled with pride and hope. We're honored to be part of this journey and committed to supporting them every step of the way. The story of Longsheng's rice journey is a reminder of the power of sustainable farming and respect for nature. It's a promise that, together, we can create a more sustainable and bountiful future.
