Only First Grade Rice Cooperative in Spain

BUSINESS

ARROZÚA is a First Grade Andalusian cooperative that brings together manufacturers and distributors of the highest quality rice in Spain. It is located in the Sevillian municipality of Isla Mayor, in the surroundings of the Doñana National Park, which gives the product unbeatable qualities.

This organization has a long history dedicated to the production, drying, storage and distribution of paddy rice and white rice. Its commercialization is carried out both nationally and internationally. And it is that more and more markets are surrendering to the nutritional and organoleptic properties of a rice as special as this one.

ONLY FIRST GRADE COOPERATIVE OF RICE MANUFACTURERS AND DISTRIBUTORS IN SPAIN

Arrozúa, SCA de Segundo Grado, was created in 2005. It arose from the merger between the cooperatives Unión Arrocera SCA (founded in 1983) and Veta la Mora SCA (founded in 1987), in order to supply the members of the two entities the necessary fuels for rice cultivation.

During 2008, and by agreement of the General Assemblies of both cooperatives, a third entity was absorbed, thus becoming a First Degree Cooperative.

Business Arrozúa

The main reasons for this union were to pool resources to improve the rice cultivation process and increase the services provided to members. Proof that this has been achieved is that today the reception, drying and storage of rice has been strengthened.

Another of the great milestones achieved by the company has been the construction of a mill, which allows the transformation of paddy rice into packaged white rice to supply directly to the consumer. With it, the Cooperative has been able to increase the job offer in the area, as well as specialization in an essential and booming sector such as agri-food.

At all times we seek to join forces in order to be more competitive in a highly globalized market.
