observe a set of moral codes i.e. abstinence
from alcohol drinking, smoking and gambling.
These farmers create a brand, “Moral Rice,”
which is meant to induce trust in their
customers that the product is genuine organic
Hommali Rice. Eventually, the new brand has
successfully helped farmers overcome the
falling prices of rice.
Altogether, there are 119 moral rice
farmers, who are members of the Dhama
Ruamjai Group in Yasothon Province. The group
has its own motto, “Strong Moral Codes, high
working skills and good knowledge,” to guide
their farming activities in the supply chain
system, which makes it unique.

All participating farmers in the project vowed to observe a set of moral codes i.e. abstinence from alcohol drinking, smoking and gambling. These farmers create a brand, “Moral Rice,” which is meant to induce trust in their customers that the product is genuine organic Hommali Rice. Eventually, the new brand has successfully helped farmers overcome the falling prices of rice. Altogether, there are 119 moral rice farmers, who are members of the Dhama Ruamjai Group in Yasothon Province. The group has its own motto, “Strong Moral Codes, high working skills and good knowledge,” to guide their farming activities in the supply chain system, which makes it unique.
