Rice-growing in Aragon dates back to the 1930s, when it was first planted in the region of Ribera del Ebro (Zaragoza). Later, in the 1990s, cultivation was extended to other areas in Zaragoza and Huesca provinces in order to desalinate the soil and prevent desertification.
1996 marked the founding of Arrocera del Pirineo, an agricultural cooperative that is currently made up of more than 100 rice-growers from Aragon. The introduction of on-site evaluation and the setting up of a mill in 2008 has since allowed us to bring our rice to your table.
Our rice paddies in the counties of Cinco Villas (Zaragoza), Monegros and Cinca Medio (Huesca) are the highest paddies in Spain, in terms of altitude. This, along with the use of meltwater, ensures our rice is of exceptionally high quality.
