SUN Selects Riso Scotti For Consilia Private Label Rice
Italian grocery purchasing consortium SUN (Supermercati Uniti Nazionali) has selected Riso Scotti to produce rice for its Consilia private label range.
Based near Pavia in Italy, Riso Scotti produces white risotto rice and rice-based diversification products. The manufacturer will produce three types of organic rice for the Consilia private label brand: Arborio Bio, Ribe Integrale bio, and Carnaroli bio.
The Consilia brand already features a wide variety of rice products, including arborio, carnaroli, riso Roma, nano vialone, Thai parboiled, ribe parbolied, ribe integrale, and basmati.
Ferdinando Spadea, manager for commercial brands and special channels at Riso Scotti, said that the company guarantees a high quality "from raw material to finished product". The company also has a focus on sustainability and waste-recovery.
The SUN consortium consists of local retailers Magazzini Gabrieli, Italbrix, Cadoro, Alfi and Gros, with a particularly widespread presence in north and central Italy.
