Wonderful Rice

Funky Rice

Do I need to say more :)? 'Everyday magic', like ELLE decoration puts it. 'We want you to be happy when washing, cleaning, baking and relaxing in your home', like Rice puts it.

Rice was established in 1998 in Denmark, and supports UN Global Compact, the 10 principles in the areas of human rights, labour, the environment and anti-corruption:

  • Principle 1: Businesses should support and respect the protection of internationally proclaimed human rights; and
  • Principle 2: make sure that they are not complicit in human rights abuses.  
  • Principle 3: Businesses should uphold the freedom of association and the effective recognition of the right to collective bargaining;
  • Principle 4: the elimination of all forms of forced and compulsory labour;
  • Principle 5: the effective abolition of child labour; and
  • Principle 6: the elimination of discrimination in respect of employment and occupation.
  • Principle 7: Businesses should support a precautionary approach to environmental challenges;
  • Principle 8: undertake initiatives to promote greater environmental responsibility; and
  • Principle 9: encourage the development and diffusion of environmentally friendly technologies.   
  • Principle 10: Businesses should work against corruption in all its forms, including extortion and bribery. 

Rice was the first Scandinavian company certified with the SA8000 standard based on their projects with the suppliers around the world. SA8000 is one of the world's first auditable social certification standards for decent workplaces, across all industrial sectors. It is based on conventions of the ILO, UN and national laws. If you wish, you can read more HERE.

As part of their production, Rice has projects helping local communities for example in Madagascar. They have a project for street children in New Delhi, and their colorful melamine products are made in Rice Thailand in Chiang Mai, ensuring even better working conditions than stipulated in the national labour law.

Funky AND Fabulous. Please visit to see the timeless Rice products we currently have in our selection.
