We choose European rice for a sustainable environment.
A special Masterclass on European Greek rice was held on Thursday, October 21, 2021, at the CWC (Cooking Workshop Consulting) in Thessaloniki. The masterclass was held in the framework of the European program entitled “Actions to Inform and Promote sustainable rice production in Greece and Spain” with the distinctive title EU RICE, which is implemented by the Thessaloniki Agricultural Partnership (EASTH) and the Rice Regulatory Authority ΠΟΠ Βαλένθια (Consejo Regulador de la DOP Arroz de Valencia).
The Rice Ambassador of the program in Greece, Dina Nikolaou, presented the peculiarities of Greek mesosperm rice through the creation of unique recipes.
The event presented the contribution of rice cultivation to the conservation of wetlands, the utilization of abundant water resources, the preservation of soil sustainability and in general the ecological balance, but also in the socio-economic development of its cultivation and production areas. The guests, professional chefs, taste journalists, publishers and food-bloggers were informed about the rice produced in Europe, a product of high nutritional value, rich in nutrients and safe, as it is cultivated in compliance with the strict European Regulations for agricultural production.
The event was organized by NOVACERT, as the executive body of the program.
