Justice & Peace: Kilombero Rice on Sale Soon—We are delighted to announce that Kilombero Rice from Malawi will once more be on sale during coffee mornings after 10am Mass starting on 16th September. Those who bought it last time round will remember this to be a high quality, tasty and versatile alternative to supermarket brands. Life is not easy for the small farmers in Malawi who produce this rice, prey to local middlemen who often use dodgy scales to measure produce and who make the farmers loans at exorbitant interest rates during the “hungry months”. In response to this a small, dedicated, local group committed to fair trade began importing Kilombero rice into Scotland in 2008, in order to enable these small farmers earn sufficient money to sent their children to school—at
present less that one in three children go to high school. Kilombero rice retails at £2.99 for 1Kg. Bag.
