Where to the Ebro Group brands source their rice and durum wheat?
- Both the rice and the durum wheat used by our brands are purchased from three types of primary suppliers, which can vary depending on the countries of origin of the raw material: growers or cooperatives, mills and/or plants, and traders, but the bulk of our raw materials are bought in local markets in the countries in which we operate and directly from individual growers or cooperatives.
- North America and Europe are the two most important regions for sourcing rice, and to a lesser extent countries such as India or Thailand for aromatic rice varieties. The bulk of our durum wheat is sourced in Europe and North America, France and the USA being the two most important countries by volume of purchase.
