A premium certified organic rice
The company’s processing plant in Cambodia, certified GMP HACCP and ISO 22000, ensures the production of high-quality rice before threshing (paddy) to the finished product in accordance with international food safety standards. FedRice is also one of the few market players to offer organic rice of such high quality.
GMP HACCP certifies our products comply with all legal requirements of food safety and quality, based on microbiological, physical and chemical analyses of our food.
ISO 22000 is an international standard ensuring the safety of our food products.
Fair wages and gender equality
FedRice employs a team of more than 50 full-time staff, half of whom are women. This gender equality is also reflected at management level. Employees are paid salaries that greatly exceed the Cambodian labor market averages and are offered health insurance fully covered by FedRice. The company offers two meals a day and provides accommodation near the factory for those who so choose.
A high standard of selection of rice from producers
Through partnerships with farmers’ associations and NGOs, FedRice has created a safe paddy environment and, above all, lasting relationships based on trust. The 3,000 producers with whom FedRice works are advised by our quality control team and may benefit from pre-financing for rice plants. FedRice also works closely with producer associations and certifies contractual agricultural agreements with organizations promoting sustainable development and organic farming in Cambodia.
State-of-the-art technology in the heart of rice paddies
After being cleaned and hulled with the greatest care, the rice is brought to processing. All technical operations are carried out using state-of-the-art equipment installed in the heart of the rice paddies so as to optimize logistics and enhance the value of each resource. Controls are carried out between each phase.
Before being packaged, the finished product is analyzed by FedRice’s quality control experts employing criteria comparable to that of government inspectors. Carried out at the end of the production cycle, this inspection ensures the product meets precise specifications according to international standards.
FedRice works with suppliers whose technologies also meet quality requirements. This state-of-the-art equipment allows each and every grain of rice to undergo high-quality processing. The computerized traceability of the system also allows the optimization of all processing stages. FedRice’s corporate mission is to combine efficiency and sustainability.
