CASARONE founded more than half a century ago, is one of the companies in the rice sector with the longest experience in the region and it is the first one which was vertically integrated.
It is the owner of 20,000 hectares of fields where 30% of the raw material it industrializes is produced. It also receives the crops sent each year by an important group of vastly experienced producers.
Casarone is one of the largest rice exporters in Uruguay. Each year, it places more than 100,000 tons of finished product and by-products on the international market.
In addition, it grows other grains and develops livestock activities managing a herd of 10,000 heads of bovine cattle with a production scheme of breeding, rearing, wintering and fattening in corrals.
At the same time, Casarone has equity interests in other companies related to the business and that support its activity, such as Arrozur, Galofer and Corrales.
