Strand Trading is a key player in the export of sensitive products, specializing in the production of Non-GMO fortified long-grain rice. In a world witnessing a surge in demand for rice, a fundamental food source, our commitment is unwavering in maintaining the highest standards of quality.

Significance of Rice: Rice, derived from the grass species Oryza sativa or O. glaberrima, stands as the primary staple for over half of the global population, particularly in Asia and Africa. As a cereal grain, domesticated rice is the most widely consumed staple food, ranking third in worldwide production after sugarcane and maize. Providing over one-fifth of global caloric intake, rice holds unparalleled significance in human nutrition.

Traditional Rice Cultivation: Traditional rice cultivation often involves flooding fields during or after planting seedlings. This method, requiring effective irrigation planning, acts as a natural deterrent to less robust weed and pest plants. While flooding is not obligatory, alternative irrigation methods demand increased efforts in weed and pest control and a different fertilization approach.

Genetic Modification and Agriculture: Genetically modified foods, created through genetic engineering, have sparked considerable debate. Rice, typically an annual plant, is well-suited for cultivation in regions with low labor costs and ample rainfall. Terrace systems enable its growth in diverse landscapes. While native to Asia and parts of Africa, rice has become a global staple through centuries of trade.

Global Perspectives on GMOs: The definition of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) varies among countries and international bodies, leading to inconsistency and confusion. Terms like “Non-GMO” or “GMO-free” in product labeling can create complexity, extending even to items like water or salt, sometimes creating an impression of healthiness despite lacking genetic material susceptible to modification.

Strand Trading LLC’s Commitment: At Strand Trading LLC, our primary focus is on delivering high-quality Non-GMO fortified long-grain rice. We aim to contribute to global food security while navigating the complexities associated with genetic modification in agriculture. Our commitment to quality ensures that consumers receive a product that aligns with their preferences and values in a rapidly evolving global market.

Knowing that mothers make most healthy decisions when it comes to buying products for the household, we decided on the name ‘Mommy’s Rice’. The name also serves as a kind of approval stamp, indicating the quality of the rice and tempting anyone who misses moms cooking or wants to buy rice that nurtures them, and that they can easily cook to perfection, just like their mothers do— after all, what taste can compare to that of Mommy’s Rice?
