Presidential Award for Best Organic Farmer 2011
Our Simpatik (link to Simpatik) farmer group leader, Haji UU, has traveled to the Presidential Palace to receive the prestigious Presidential Award for Best in Organic Farming. This is the highest honor in Indonesia, and it acknowledges Sunria’s premise that when take better care of the farmers, they take better care of the food they grow.
Haji UU hopes that “this award will not put a smile on the farmers’ faces, but reinforce our hearts’ belief that we must appreciate and respect what nature has given us to ensure sustainability for future generations.”
This is the second year in a row Sunria farmers have received the esteemed Presidential Award. Last year, we have been awarded Presidential Award for the Best in Food Security. Check out other awards we received in our story.
