At The Little Rice Company, it's not just about growing rice, but also growing lives. We partner smallholder farmers in Myanmar, a country with ideal rice-growing climate and fertile land and introduce sustainable farming methods. We endeavour to protect the environmental longevity of rice by reducing rice production carbon footprint by 70%, uplift smallholder farm livelihood by increasing income of up to 3 times.  Through our stewardship, we are also committed to educating consumers on food sustainability and traceability through the lens of rice.

It is the lowest GI wholegrain available in Singapore, making it one of the best food options for regulating blood glucose levels. Low GI brown rice gets converted into sugar more slowly and releases energy steadily into the bloodstream, keeping you satiated longer. It also facilitates healthy bowel movement and improves metabolism, promoting weight loss.

It can also help in weight management and improve blood cholesterol levels.
