Why Choose SRP-Verified Rice?
Each grain makes a difference
The SRP-Verified Label or Claim – a benchmark for sustainable rice cultivation.

When you purchase SRP-Verified products, you are making a real difference:
- Promote climate-smart agriculture

SRP-Verified rice is sustainably sourced to protect people and our planet.
Rice feeds the world. Over 3.5 billion people eat it as part of their regular diet. Yet the way we’ve been producing rice is not sustainable.
Rice uses ⅓ of the world’s freshwater.
Rice production is responsible for 10% of man-made methane emissions worldwide.
144 million smallholder farmers bear a majority of the rice production risks.
What is the Sustainable Rice Platform (SRP)?
SRP is an international multi-stakeholder alliance that is transforming the global rice industry to be more equitable, stable, and sustainable. We work in several ways to take action for sustainable rice and have created a system of tools to help drive our cause. Our tools contain a blueprint for sustainable farming techniques, plus a system that links markets with farmers using sustainable methods. This gives you access to verified, sustainably produced rice.
