S. Andrea is a all-purpose Italian rice variety, the sole rice variety to have obtained an European recognition: "DOP riso di Baraggia Biellese e Vercelli" PDO trademark in 2007. The PDO trademark provides a production guideline ranging from the seed used to its processing to be followed by producers. The National rice board (Ente Nazionale Risi) controls the respect of the protocol. After the laboratory analysis, the product has to respect some parameters with regard to the stickiness and texture, which allow a better cooking resistance. Moreover, this GOIO 1929 branded rice is dry seeded, meaning a healthier and oxygenated soil. It is cultivated with the crop rotation system, following the grandfather’s tradition. It is carefully selected during the handcrafted production. The rice is packaged in paper box.
Goio 1929 is suitable to prepare all kind of dish ranging from risotto to soups or cakes. It is also excellent simply boiled to accompany second courses.

Riso Goio is grown in the heart of Baraggia Biellese and Vercellese, the most favourable area for high quality rice production in Italy. The Goio family began its activity in the rice industry thanks to the founder Ernesto, born in 1903. The recognition of the "DOP Riso Baraggia Biellese e Vercellese" - PDO trademark was achieved by the company in 2007 for its "Goio 1929" named S.Andrea variety rice. As the grandfather used to do long ago, the new generation reintroduced the crop rotation system: after two years of soybeans cultivation, the soil is rearranged by using a laser blade to execute the dry seeding method instead of the wet seeding, where seeds are sown on the surface of submerged rice yields. This technique minimizes chemicals use and water waste by reducing its use up to only a few weeks.
