Company Description

Lotus Foods is a specialty rice company, offering rice and rice-based items, including convenience meals, noodles, crackers, and select snacks.

Lotus Foods is laser-focused on changing how rice is grown around the world. In doing so, the company hopes to lessen the environmental impact of rice production, improve nutrition for consumers, and create more social and economic justice for small farmers. Lotus Foods’ work centers around More Crop Per Drop™, an organic growth process that allows participating farmers to double or triple their yields using up to 50% less water and 80-90% less seed. More Crop Per Drop is based on a widely recognized growing process which has been shown to decrease the risk of disease for rice paddy workers, and to increase water availability for other crops, ecosystems, and communities.

Lotus Foods’ work is widely recognized for is industry-leading innovation and positive social impact. In 2017 alone, the company and its leadership received the first NEXTY Gold Award at the Natural Products Expo East, the first-ever Leadership for Global Impact Award from Conscious Company Media, and the Leadership Award for Citizenship from the Specialty Foods Association.
