How it all began...

The beginning of Novarroz’ activity within the rice industry dates back to the 60s. Back then, the milling was done in a traditional water mill, by the river.

The upper floor worked as a warehouse for the raw materials: rice and other cereals.

Below, huge milling stones moved, fueled by the water stream of the river, milling the rice and cereals.

Although the technology used today has evolved greatly, at Novarroz we are still driven by this traditional knowledge, authenticity and passion.
