Kingdom’s organic rice market sprouts

DISTRIBUTION of organic Jasmine rice is expected to increase 10 percent this year after positive results for the year to date, according to the Cambodian Centre for Study and Development in Agriculture (CEDAC). With an expected four new distribution outlets to be opened next month, CEDAC enterprise manager Lang Senghorng said Wednesday that the sale of the organic rice to local markets had reached 320 tonnes – worth US$240,000 – by mid-May. With these results, he said, total distribution could reach 1,000 tonnes this year, compared to 900 tonnes last year.
