Pinas, ‘Best Rice Producer’ pa rin sa buong mundoJanuary 22, 2020
Manila, Philippines – Nananatiling ‘best rice producers worldwide’ ang Pilipinas, ayon sa Malakanyang.
Ito ang ipinahayag ni Presidential Spokesperson Salvador Panelo matapos makapasok ang bigas ng Chen Yi Agventures na ‘Dalisay’ sa top 30 rice varieties sa buong mundo.
Ang Dalisay Rice o mas kilalang Renucci rice na mula pa Alangalang, Leyte ay kinilala bilang pangatlo sa 30 rice varieties sa buong mundo sa ginawang World Rice Conference sa Makati Shangri-La noong November 2019.
Ang Chen Yi Agventures ang kauna-unahang Filipino company na nanalo ng World Best Rice Contest, sa hanay ng Thailand at Vietnam.
“The Office of the President acknowledges the efforts of Chenyi Agventures in placing the flag yet again on the pedestal of producing quality rice as it was recognized as one of the world’s best during the 11th Annual World Rice Conference 2019 held in the country last November,” saad ni Panelo.
“Out of the 30 participating countries, the Philippines ranked third with its Renucci Rice entry. Chen Yi Agventures, along with the Philippine Rice Research Institute, should be credited for their achievement during this conference despite only being a last-minute addition,” dagdag pa nito.
Samantala, pinapurihan naman ni Panelo ang Chen Yi Agventures.
“The rest, as they say, is history,” bati ni Panelo.
“As an agricultural country, this recognition should all the more inspire the government to work harder in improving the lot of our farmers and modernizing the agricultural sector.”

Rice Up: Rachel Renucci-Tan Uplifts The Lives Of FarmersRachel Renucci-Tan and her husband Patrick Renucci were happily living successful lives in Paris when Typhoon Yolanda was ravaging the Philippines. “We saw the images on TV of Yolanda really destroying the province of Leyte, and I realized we had to do something,” says Rachel, “we couldn’t just sit there and stare at the Eiffel Tower and sip champagne.” Feeling like they had to do something, they left everything behind and moved to the Philippines.
