@Leala thanks for sharing.  This is a great opportunity for early career conservationists to get a head start with funding their field projects.  I hope graduates of WildTeam training courses will apply

Hi Tony,

This looks great. I look forward to buying my first packet of sticky rice. You must let us all know when this is up and running.

Hello Jane, When Ibis Rice is available in the UK I will post the announcement here!


Cheers

Tony

Hi tony, this is very intriguing! From what I see around me, I believe it could have a very good market in Germany too :)

Hi Mariasole, Ibis Rice is being sold in Germany.  There is talk about an Australian market too.  Cheers Tony

Hello Tony, thank you for sharing this, it sounds like a great idea and really well marketed as well, so I hope it is selling well. I see they do sticky rice, this was one of my favourite things when I was in Cambodia! I've not seen Ibis rice in the UK, but if I do you shall be one of the first to hear about my excitement! 

Hi Beth, The plan is to launch Ibis Rice in the UK.  Jasmine rice is what's being marketed. It's already up and running in Singapore, Hong Kong, and soon Canada.  Nick Spencer is the Cambodia-based British CEO of the company that is managing the project.  You can read more here https://www.foodnavigator.com/Article/2019/08/21/We-re-in-business-to-protect-forests-and-wildlife-we-re-also-the-best-you-can-buy-IBIS-Rice-on-its-UK-launch-plans

Hi Tony, Thanks for sharing - exciting to read about these SMART developments. Would be great to add it one of our rooms on WildHub so that people can easily find it again. Perhaps the 'Management and organisational development' room?

In your published post, you can click on 'edit' and select the room of your choice in the right-hand menu when you are in the 'editing a post' interface. Let me know if you have any questions and have a nice day!

Hi Thirza, I've reassigned the post to Management and organizational development but I wonder if WildHub could have a Conservation Technology room where this might sit and attract more readers?
