Dusit Hotels and Resorts became the first hotel chain in Thailand to offer 100% organic rice across its entire property portfolio across the country.

This move will bring nutritional benefits to visitors, customers and employees, sustainable income and development for farming communities in the Thung Kula Rong Hai area of ​​the kingdom, especially in Surin and Sisaket provinces.

The organic rice offering is promoted by Dusit International’s food business unit, Dusit Foods, and the company’s Sustainability Committee. Dusit works directly with farm collectives and provides all the support they need – from quality control, training, packaging, and distribution – to deliver quality organic Jasmine rice products to hotels, restaurants, and food service businesses.

All Dusit Hotels and Resorts in Thailand, as well as Dusit’s independent restaurant, Baan Dusit Thani, in Bangkok, are now using rice to create nutritious and delicious meals for their customers and staff.

Applying the “Farm-to-Table” concept, Dusit’s team selected four farming communities to work with based on their passion for high-quality products. This community includes agricultural collectives in the Cor Ko and Nhon Pai districts of Surin province, as well as the Huai Thap Than and Nong Khae districts of Sisaket province.

Siradej Donavanik, Vice President of Global Development, Dusit International, and Chairman of Dusit’s Sustainability Committee, said the organic rice initiative is part of the company’s strategy. This is to optimize its culinary offerings in line with the four pillars of Dusit Graciousness: Service, Happiness, Locality and Sustainability.

Mr. Donavanik said: “Jasmine rice from Thung Kula Rong Hai is known around the world for its strong aroma, soft texture, and fine grain. And the long-grain white rice we offer is one of the best. By sourcing this rice directly, we are not only giving our guests, customers, and employees access to high-quality nutrition, but also the collective farmers we work with access to a stable income, which improves their quality of life. At the same time, as a business, our organic rice model helps optimize overall quality and costs within the group, so it’s really a win-win.”
