Communications officer Rikolto in Belgium

Named after the goddess of rice, Catur Utami Dewi, was destined to coordinate Rikolto's rice activities around the globe. In this episode of our podcast, The Rikolto Recipe, she tells us how rice production is both a culprit and a victim of today's challenges, such as climate change. But more importantly: She shows how new global partnerships are turning the tide to bring good rice to everyday consumers like you.

Think global, act local and learn global. Our global rice strategy is adapted to regional and country contexts, challenges and opportunities. Local flagship initiatives have inspired colleagues and been replicated elsewhere. We are all part of a cohesive global rice team and network.
