“Agrino” is a Greek company with more than 65 years of experience in the rice business. Its vision has always been to offer consumers products that are safe, healthy, & of stable quality, with nutritional value, mainly cultivated in Greece, with respect towards the environment & the traditional cultivation techniques. The essence of “Agrino’s” technological innovation is firstly the development of a cooperation model with the Greek farmers, which promotes the sustainability of their cultivation methods, but also the support to Greece’s rural areas & economies, thus contributing to the development of these regions. The focus is on Greek cultivations, sustainable production processes & close cooperation with the farmers who apply precision agriculture. Given that Greece, due to its limited size but rich biodiversity, has a tradition of producing quality rather than quantity, “Agrino” has dedicated itself to supporting quality. 20% of Greece’s rice production is absorbed by “Agrino”, & “Agrino” has managed this 20% to be cultivated as per the international standard called GLOBALGAP (Global Good Agricultural Practice). GLOBALGAP ensures safe products, sustainable production methods, recorded cultivation, absence of pesticide residues, well-being & safety of growers, traceability & protection of the environment.
“Agrino” brings all the nutritional values of the Greek soil to your plate by producing all types of rice, white & parboiled from the best Greek rice varieties. The Agrino rice products stand out for their unique taste that remains intact in the distinctive stand-up packaging with the window from where you can see the content. “Rizi Parboiled | Bella” is a Greek white parboiled long-grain rice that remains fluffy. It is cultivated in the deltas of the rivers Aliakmonas & Axios in Northern Greece. It gets its yellowish colour from the outer husk during the parboiling procedure, after which the husk is removed. Parboiling involves partial boiling of the husked rice & is done in three steps: soaking, steaming & drying. The parboiling process moves the micronutrients contained in the bran, making parboiled rice more nutritious than white rice. Parboiled rice is firmer & less sticky when cooked.
