Amsterdam – Bangkok, 19 June 2023 — The Sustainable Rice Platform (SRP) launches its first Out-Of-Home (OOH) #ChooseSustainableRice consumer campaign in partnership with the out-of-home leader blowUP media in the Netherlands.

The first ever OOH #ChooseSustainableRice consumer campaign in cooperation with blowUP media

This summer we want to inspire consumers to #ChooseSustainableRice with a major OOH campaign supported by blowUP media in the Netherlands.
The campaign will showcase the winning photos of SRP’s first-ever photo contest.

Introducing the winners of SRP’s first-ever photo contest!

First of all, we would like to thank everyone who participated in our photo contest! We received a large number of beautiful and breathtaking pictures of rice fields and rice farmers. After much consideration, we are delighted to announce the six winning photos featuring rice farmers and landscapes.

Congratulations to the winners of SRP’s first-ever photo contest!

Thanks to blowUP media, our generous campaign partner, these stunning photos will inspire the streets of the Netherlands right in the heart of the shopping centers of various cities such as Tilburg, Amsterdam, Rotterdam, The Hague, Eindhoven, Utrecht and more.

With this consumer campaign we aim to increase awareness among consumers that by choosing sustainable rice they can directly contribute to people, planet and progress.

We want to see your pictures!

If you see our campaign on billboards in the Netherlands, take a picture and upload it with the supporting hashtags #ChooseSustainableRice and #SRP to inspire others inside and outside the Netherlands to join our sustainable rice revolution and help feed the world sustainably.

Sustainable rice production & consumption is needed to feed the world sustainably.

While rice is a staple food for more than 3.5 billion people worldwide and over 140 million smallholder farmers depend on it for food or livelihoods, the crop is still often overlooked when it comes to shifting from conventional to sustainable farming practices. Conventional rice farming uses up to 5,000 liters of fresh water per kilogram of rice, and is responsible for around 10% of global man-made methane emissions. This makes rice both a contributor and a victim of climate change as it is highly vulnerable to the impacts of it. To bring change to the global rice sector SRP and its members are promoting sustainable rice production practices and consumption to shift towards a healthy, inclusive and sustainable future for people and planet.

The on-pack SRP-Verified Label, introduced in 2020, empowers consumers to help farmers and the planet directly by choosing SRP-Verified sustainable rice. In 2022, the label was selected as one of the 12 top sustainability labels by Milieucentrale. This resulted in further engagement with some of the largest retailers in the Netherlands, including Lidl, Albert Heijn, Jumbo, Superunie as well as rice brands and other major market actors such as LT Foods and Van Sillevoldt Rice/Euricom.
