Kalochori, Thessaloniki has an altitude difference of 1 meter below the sea level. As a result, our soils have high salinity compared to others. Trying to turn this on our advantage, we chose the Carnaroli variety, which in our soils has almost 90% starch content.
«Who we are»
Next to Thermaic gulf, in the fertile lands of Kalochori, our family has been cultivating rice for 25 years. We are producing safe and quality products.
All cultivated lands have some specific features. The altitude difference of 1m below the sea level results in high soil salinity.
Under the given conditions we have, after constant research, turned to a variety of rice that is favored by the soil characteristics of the region, the Italian Carnaroli (King of Rice).
With this variety we achieved a 90% starch content in the grain, meeting the nutritional requirements of the modern consumer for a high nutritional value product.
Our efforts have not stopped here, but our continued research in permaculture in order to improve soil and preserve biodiversity has made us turn to hemp cultivation.
This has given us the incentive to set up Gradona to offer the consumer safe, tasty and healthy products that we are glad to present to you on our site.
