The USA Rice Sustainability Award is open to individuals or entities with significant involvement in the U.S. rice industry and with a history of promoting and advancing sustainability through innovative practices and demonstrated leadership in the sustainability community.
Last year’s USA Rice Sustainability award went to American Commodity Company, a California rice mill that has incorporated sustainability at virtually all levels of their operations. This includes how they use and generate power using solar installations at their milling facility in Williams. They have also made major strides in the areas of water quality, waste reduction and recycling at their facilities.
The award committee is now accepting nominations through October 25, 2019 and the award will be presented at the USA Rice Outlook Conference in Little Rock, Arkansas on December 09, 2019.
Previous nominations can be re-submitted for consideration and individuals may self-nominate.
