MinDA urges farmers to grow organic black rice

Targeting a lucrative market!

DAVAO CITY - As Mindanao starts the export of organic brown, red and black rice, I have been confronted by the question: "Why are you exporting when the rest of the country is importing rice?"

My answer is simple: Mindanao is not exporting a commodity which is Rice.

We are exporting a High Value Product which is organically grown brown, red and black rice for a niche market willing to pay a higher price for healthy food.
