Grain quality is a very important issue regarding the final product. Quality depends not only in the variety of rice, but also on the crop production environment, harvesting, processing and milling systems. Several interrelated features determine the quality of rice, such as moisture content and purity degree. These characteristics are determined by the environmental weather conditions during production, crop production practices, soil conditions harvesting, and post-harvest practices.
Our producers fully comply with the Integrated Quality Management System for the Agricultural Production of Rice. This System is based on good agricultural practices which respect the environment, protect the producer-grower’s health and offer a healthy and safe product to the consumer.
High-end quality and genuine taste are the characteristics of European Ρice. Beginning from the field, producers select the seeds most suited to the soil and climate conditions of the area. During the cultivation they adhere to certified Integrated Management procedures aimed to the protection of the environment and the safety of the product. After harvesting, the product is transferred to the Rice Millers which implement a certified Quality and Food Safety System, for a better control of the quality procedure.
