  • 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.
