RISO NANO VIALONE VERONESE P.G.I.
Rice cultivation in the plain of Verona is only 0.6% of the Italian rice production, it can be said that it is absolutely a product reserved for the most discerning palates. The Riso Vialone Nano Veronese P.G.I. is however, one of the most nationally known, the proof of this is the great success and exponential growth in the number of visitors of the traditional “Fair of rice”, which takes place every year during the months of September and October in Isola della Scala (VR) , heart of the production of Rice Vialone Nano Veronese P.G.I.
The Chain Traceability is one of the features that differentiates the rice mill “la Pila” from the plethora of companies that:
_ Buy raw rice to work it and package it
_ Package it only
_ Marketing a finished product provided by other.
The rice mill “la Pila” chose for its brands the most modern packaging technology of rice: bags in a protective atmosphere. This technology allows a duration of 30 months, greater than that of tile vacuum.
The difference of the bags in a protective atmosphere than tile is in less mechanical stress of the rice which is not subjected to compressions due to aspiration of air for the creation of the vacuum; also the rice grains are not closely adherent to plastic as in the tiles for which there is no unpleasant feeling of “greasy”.
