HAFOTI has recently introduced Timorese red and black rice to our range of local products. They have a lovely aroma and are also rich in fiber and anthrocyanines (the natural anti-oxidant responsible for the color in the grains).
Red and black rices are very special heritage species and part of Timor-Leste’s cultural heritage. HAFOTI’s rice is from the Viqueque district.
These are low yeilding species that need careful cultivation. Black rice is particularly rare, and so is subject to availability.
You can buy our rice in Kmanek Supermarket, Pateo and Lita Store, and also the HAFOTI shop.
