A visual journey to a Women’s parboiling cooperative in Burkina Faso

In comparison to whole grain rice, parboiled rice is enriched with more than half of its original nutritional content. This process - called parboiling - allows the minerals, vitamins and nutrients housed in rice husks to be absorbed into the final rice grains. The parboiling process is performed most of the times through women cooperatives. Cooperatives empower women by providing them with opportunities to earn additional income.
