ABOUT US

We are an agricultural production and food trading holding company.

Euricom Group was born in 1970 from the passion, dedication and sacrifices of Francesco Sempio together with the good friend Giuseppe Nervi, both great entrepreneurs and connoisseurs of the typical Lomellina product: rice. Today Euricom is managed with the same visionary spirit by the second generation: Bruno Sempio, Francesco’s son, became president in 2013.

Our headquarters is in Valle Lomellina, in the heart of a historic area of rice cultivation in Italy, an area which remains unsurpassed for quality production capacity.

We operate worldwide as producers of private-label foods - for large retail chains - and as rice suppliers for the food industry. We are the leading European rice-growing group and one of the top five players worldwide.

Over the years, Euricom Group has expanded its trading activities, extending its interest to other sectors of primary goods production, the energy sector and engineering.

We are a lively and constantly growing reality, thanks to strategic acquisitions and joint ventures in order to strengthen our presence on the European and international market. We are always looking towards the supply needs of the countries, the technological innovations and the taste of the final consumer.

Our global vision is the result of a 360-degree control on the supply chain, where we can guarantee high quality standards in every step, thanks to a constant certification work.

History

Italy
1957 – The origins: Francesco Sempio

Francesco Sempio was born in a Pavese family of farmers who cultivated rice, corn and wheat. He lost his father at the age of 16 and in a short time decided to take part in family business rather than continuing his studies. He says of himself: “I was born in Lomellina, a land that produces rice and geese. Just thirty square kilometres between the provinces of Pavia, Vercelli and Alessandria, yet rice made us relevant.
