Unli-rice, brown rice campaigns beating half-rice policy?

The half-rice campaign is building momentum but its acceptance is slow as far as local government support is concerned.

The Philippine Rice Research Institute said only over 40 local government units have passed ordinances requiring food establishments to offer half rice to customers.

Philrice said Filipinos waste P23 million worth of rice a day, which is enough to feed 2.6 million poor Filipinos.

Consumer education is one of government’s campaigns to prevent rice wastage and attain rice sufficiency.

Consumption of healthier rice, specifically brown rice, is also being stepped up.
