With respect to the European Rice produced in Greece, producers implement Certified Procedures complying 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.
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.
