We are continuing to run the RICE CHALLENGE : buy two 1kg bags of Fairtrade Kilombero Rice from Malawi (white or brown) for £10 and we will deliver the rice and in addition make a £3 donation to one of the Traidcraft Exchange projects. This is delicious and versatile easy-to-cook rice which has won Great Taste awards.
If you’d like to take part, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org telling us which rice you would like and we will arrange payment and delivery.
