On Wednesday, December 22, 2021, another seminar was presented at the premises of IEK Perea in Thessaloniki to present original recipes with medium-sized Greek rice. The students of the school were informed about the rice produced in Europe, a product of high nutritional value, rich in nutrients and safe, since it is cultivated in compliance with the strict European Regulations for agricultural production.
The seminar was organized in the framework of the European program entitled “Actions to Inform and Promote sustainable rice production in Greece and Spain”. The program with the distinctive title EU RICE, is implemented by the Agricultural Partnership of Thessaloniki (EASTH) and the Consejo Regulador de la DOP Arroz de Valencia (PDO Valencia Rice Regulatory Authority). The event presented the contribution of rice cultivation in the conservation of wetlands, the utilization of abundant water resources, the preservation of soil sustainability and in general in the ecological balance, but also in the socio-economic development of its cultivation and production areas.
