Asian Development Bank Inclusive Business Video Series Profiles Siam Organic

April 20th, 2018 Posted by Blog No Comment yet

Siam Organic was happy to host a film crew from Asian Development Bank (ADB) last week. The ADB film crew was on the last leg of a project to film all six finalists of last year’s ASEAN Inclusive Business Awards. Selected from countries throughout the ASEAN region, the finalists included inclusive businesses from the Philippines, Laos, Malaysia, Singapore, and Thailand.

For their project, ADB is producing a series of short films on all of the inclusive business finalists, telling the stories of their social impact through interviews with the people they are helping. During their visit with us, ADB interviewed the leader of one of our Jasberry farmer cooperatives as well as two of our Jasberry farmers. Our farmers were happy to tell their stories in their own words, and we look forward to sharing the finished video once ADB completes editing and production next month.

For the third year in a row, Siam Organic showcased our line of Jasberry™ products at the BIOFACH organic food expo in Nuremberg, Germany. BIOFACH is the world’s leading trade fair for organic food, and attending it is something we look forward to every year. This year’s event took place from 15-18 February at the Exhibition Centre Nuremberg.
BIOFACH is a great opportunity for us to connect our farmers to organic food distributors and retailers from all around the world. This year, we met with distributors from the Americas, Europe, the Middle East, and Asia. We shared the story of our farmers while also displaying our line of Jasberry rice and gluten-free superfood pasta. After meeting so many interested distributors at BIOFACH, we hope to partner with many of them over the coming year to bring Jasberry products to several new markets around the world.

 

BIOFACH was a great opportunity for us to show off our updated packaging for Jasberry rice.
