The Italian "Consorzio di Tutela del Riso del Delta del Po IGP" (Association for the Protection of the Po Delta Rice PGI) was established in December 2012 thanks to the effort of 12 founding members. The procedure to obtain the PGI denomination began more than a decade ago with a group of companies from Veneto, joined by other important rice growing companies from Ferrara. The Association resulting from this teamwork adds value to the safeguard and promotion of the Po Delta Rice PGI.
