Ceres Organics showcased their range for the first time at the Natural & Organic Products Expo Asia in Hong Kong last week, alongside their new distributor, Organic Plus. 

An awards ceremony took place to celebrate the achievements and the contributions of industry professionals. 

Ceres Organics are thrilled to have won Best New Natural/Organic healthy snack for their Black Rice Crackers, made from Thailand’s Riceberry. 
Riceberry is a cross-breed of two high quality strains of rice – black Jasmine rice and black fragrant rice. It contains high levels of antioxidants such as Beta-carotene, Vitamin-E, Tannin, Zinc, Folate, and Omega3.

It’s not the first time these crackers have been on the winners podium. Last year, the Thai royal family bestowed their top award on the crackers in their National Riceberry Competition. 

Managing director of Ceres Organics, Noel Josephson, says “Thailand is very keen to see Riceberry become more popular all over the world, so it’s great that our Black Rice Crackers have been flying off the shelves since we launched them throughout the Asia-Pacific Region.

“These awards are an acknowledgement of just how good this product is”. 

Josephson acknowledges that Ceres Organics couldn’t have achieved this alone, “it’s wonderful that we have a successful business partnership with the company that is manufacturing our certified organic rice products in Thailand” he says. 

Giving recognition to innovative ideas and newly-launched products, the Natural and Organic awards are a benchmark for excellence and set the standard for quality and commitment in the natural and organic industry.

New Zealand-owned Ceres Organics has the largest range of organic products under one brand in Australasia with over 400 certified organic products in the range. They started over 30 years ago as an organic vegetable co-op working out of a garage. 
Today, Ceres Organics employs 150 people with distribution across major supermarkets, health food and organics stores and works with suppliers and distributors globally.
