Take care and protect
in order to grow
All our rice is a cooperative product and to produce it, we use only controlled agriculture techniques as well as the safest and most sustainable methods to guarantee the health of our consumers and the environment.
Our firm commitment is to contribute to a more sustainable world by reducing the amount of plastic waste, we are implementing our new range of paper packaging with certification of sustainable forests, for all 500 g and 1 kg Montsià Rice packages.
For Càmara Arrossera del Montsià, it is only possible to grow if it is done in a responsible and healthy way, caring for and protecting the environment that gives life to all the families of farmers and producers in the Ebro Delta.
What do we do?
We have invested resources and worked for innovation so as to achieve a sustainable environment which allows us to guarantee and preserve the right to enjoy the precious natural environment of the Delta del Ebro and of its Nature Reserve.
How do we do this?
The L.I.F.E. Program of the European Union offers financial support to initiatives and projects aimed at making the environment better, taking special care of the ideas that push forward technical innovation and are going to contribute to sustainability and preserving the eco-system. For the Rice Growers Chamber, L.I.F.E. is the way forward to strengthen our commitment to the natural environment of the Delta del Ebro.
There is an initiative for the sustainable development in the re-use of rice husks (or hulls) as a sub-product of agriculture and for their use in the car industry and for packing. In this way we not only protect and preserve the natural environment and the humid areas of the Delta, but also we give added value to the rice husks and positively benefit the agricultural grower.
With this project we demonstrate that it is possible to progressively eliminate methyl bromide, used in the desinsectation of prepared rice, substituting it with the vacuum sealed packing of rice. This minimizes the impact on the natural environment and the emission of gases into the atmosphere. Our rice is the fruit of our efforts, and is the life and tradition of the Delta
