Excellence Through Stewardship is delighted to welcome the International Rice Research Institute (IRRI). IRRI’s membership symbolizes its commitment to the best quality management and product stewardship practices. Headquartered in the Philippines, IRRI joins more than 35 other companies and research groups who have implemented ETS’s globally accepted program.
IRRI aims to reduce poverty and hunger, improve the health of rice farmers and consumers, and ensure environmental sustainability of rice farming. To accomplish this impressive mission, IRRI develops research partnerships with the National Agricultural Research and Extension System, or NARES, of the countries it works in. It is through these collaborations that IRRI hopes to strengthen the NARES. As a member of ETS, IRRI will be in an even better position to carry out its mission.
