CHIVAS Regal Thailand set out to discover and reward Thailand's most promising social entrepreneurs with the 'Chivas Venture 3'. Thailand's finalist 2017 is Siam Organic Ltd. - a social enterprise aiming to solve the Thai farmers' poverty problem through innovative organic produce including their brand of healthy speciality organic rice called 'Jasberry'.
Though Thailand is the number one rice exporter in the world, Thai farmers are among those with the lowest income in the ASEAN region. The 'Jasberry' product line was developed to help end small-scale farmers' poverty by giving farmers access to the global organic market. This purple variety offers three times the antioxidants of blueberry.
Siam Organic provided farmers with rice seeds, micro-financing, and proper training in organic farming methods. The company has already enabled farmers to earn up to 14 times more profit compared to the average Thai farmers. Siam Organic needs your help to grow this operation and reach 20,000 new farmer households over the next three year. All you have to do is vote.
The five-week online voting round is between June 8-12. Support Siam Organic through a live vote at https://www.chivas.com/th-th/the-venture/finalists/people/th-siam-organic
