A LIFE FOR RICE,
The company and its history.
Passion, perseverance, patience:
Passion is essential for you to see a goal that others don’t see, patience and perseverance allow you to reach it. The history of my company dates back to more than 160 years ago with my great-grandfather Pietro Scotti and I am convinced that our company can create daily value thanks to our knowledge-through-communication culture.
The need to safeguard our entrepreneurial history as well as our products’ evolution, to go back to the roots of our company history and of rice traditions.
At the basis of a company’s culture are the values of risk and enterprise, the taste for innovation, the ethics of responsibility, the pleasure of discovery in launching a new product or exploring new markets.
Mr Dario Scotti has been leading the family company for thirty-five years and todays he’s leading the transformation of Riso Scotti into a European industrial rice group.
Dario Scotti’s important intuition has been the continuous wish to explain to consumers the distinguishing features of the products by Riso Scotti compared to competitors.
Today, almost all the Italians know the brand Riso Scotti. This is a particularly important result, considering that the company produces and markets a traditionally simple product. Thanks to a strong entrepreneurial boost, rice has in fact turned from a long-standing commodity to a product diversification system, with a focus on a service offer able to meet consumers’ real needs.
We are a company of people committed to creating value and culture in rice.
The specialized knowledge of those who work in Riso Scotti is what makes us unique!
At Riso Scotti, processing rice is a tradition handed down by six generations, but our pride and commitment to produce the best rice hasn’t change with time.
THE VALUE IN WHICH I TRUST!
Part-time entrepreneurs don’t exist. If you decide to be an entrepreneur, you have to dedicate 100% of your time to the company.
In my opinion, entrepreneurs should dedicate their soul to the company, otherwise they should stop. There are activities that I carry out every day, all the time, with almost manic punctuality and precision; one of the most important ones is the quality testing of raw material.
Every day, at 3:20 p.m., I have a meeting with the dedicated team, and I check the different varieties of rice that will then be processed in the plant. If you want to be an entrepreneur and last in time, you have to express values and hand them down through generations; the value of quality, for my company, has remained unchanged since 1860.
