Arvind Narula, a Thai entrepreneur who has a deep connection to the community, founded Urmatt Limited in 1999. Urmatt Group has several projects using a contract-farming platform to employ smallholder farmers to produce rice, chia, eggs, coconuts, soybeans, corn, and other products. These products are marketed domestically as well as globally with major markets being USA, Denmark, and Germany.

The group’s operations are located in the northern region of Thailand and in Rachaburi, South-West of Bangkok. Urmatt Group has grown to become one of the largest organic jasmine rice producers in the world.

In the 1990s, it made the switch to 100% organic farming from conventional farming.

Urmatt Group’s commitment to adding value to the local communities and its transition to 100% organic operations has made it a leader in sustainability. The group is certified organic by Ecocert of France. As part of their fair returns program Urmatt pays consistently above market price to farmers and their families.
