The quality control of our production chain:
a strategic choice
An essential requirement for our rice is the Quality control of our Production chain: from our farmers to our products.
1. SELECTION OF OUR PARTNER FARMERS
2. PURCHASE OF PADDY
3. RICE PROCESSING
Earlier in the process, there is a careful agricultural selection of the suppliers, made of a constant and careful monitoring of the cultivation procedures and of specific and specialized analysis carried out in European laboratories.
Every batch of paddy rice, coming in from both conventional and organic cultivation, is mapped according to variety, place of origin and farm in order to ensure the traceability from the field to the table.
Before being going into production, the raw material is weighed and sampled according to strict protocols and procedures, aiming at valuing its qualitative conformity.
The purpose of the analysis is to determine the conformity of each batch of rice and the lack of infestations/pollutants, even on those batches that have already been certified as organic.
Then the paddy rice undergoes thorough chemical-physical controls. During transformation, the grains are checked and selected according to very restrictive parameters and further verifications on the finished product are carried out: organoleptic controls in order to value its look, smell and colour as well as chemical, physical and microbiological controls.
An analysis and control protocol that, from raw material to finished product, ensures a higher qualitative level if compared to the provisions of the Italian law.
The selection of the best grains is accompanied by the objective of providing the maximum attention to sustainability, ensured by the reutilization of production waste as raw material for further transformation.
In this way, the valorisation of the rice produced in Italy and of its properties is completed, serving Riso Scotti’s mission of creating value and culture in rice.
The certifications obtained from the most distinguished international authorities confirm the respect of all required parameters in the manufacturing and transformation process and confirm the achievement of excellence in all industrial processes, as well as with regard to environmental sustainability and corporate responsibility.
