Lotus Foods

Financial support from Cienega Capital has enabled Lotus Foods to fuel the expansion of its supply chains with farmers practicing the System of Rice Intensification (SRI).
Carbon sequestration is promoted through increased soil organic matter and root biomass and higher grain and straw yields. Elimination of fossil fuel-based agrochemicals also reduces the carbon footprint of rice production. An evaluation done in India calculated that with SRI rice management, compared to current practices, GHG emissions were reduced by 40%, groundwater extractions by 60%, and fossil fuel consumption by 74%.

Together, we have been able to make a difference…
