Agrino, Agrinio, Central Greece
Agrino — a household name in Greece — has been producing rice, grains, and pulses since the 1950s. Most Agrino rice is grown in the deltas of the Aliakmonas, Axios, Strymonas and Sperchios rivers, in northern and western Greece, where the mediterranean climate, the supply of surface and groundwaters, and the particularly fertile soil create the ideal conditions for cultivating rice. With strong ties to the local community, many of whom are independent small producers, Agrino has developed rice farming sustainably and with a focus on quality. Different varieties of rice are available for specific uses — such as puddings, pilaf or stuffing vegetables — and Agrino brings all the nutritional values of the Greek soil to your plate.
