Éxito de nuestro trabajo

Antonio Tomás comes from a family of farmers from Catarroja, who over the years set up a small mill where he whitened rice for his own consumption and that of other farmers, family, and friends. It was in 1962 when, together with his wife Maruja Primo, he created the Santo Tomas brand, transitioning from packaging unbranded rice, mostly in 50 kg sacks, to providing better presentation and more formats to reach a wider audience.
From its beginnings, they supported typically Valencian rice varieties such as Bomba, Bahia, Senia, etc. Similarly, they have been part of the Regulatory Council of the Designation of Origin Valencia Rice since its establishment until the present day.
In 2003, the second generation relocated the facilities to Sollana, acquiring new brands and expanding production capacity.
In their eagerness to showcase the excellence of Valencian rices, they participate in various international fairs such as Anuga in Germany, Sial in France, Fancy Food in the United States, Gulfood in Dubai, etc. Not to mention the domestic market with events like the Salon de Gourmet held in Madrid and Alimentaria in Barcelona.
Currently, the rice products crafted by Arrocerías Antonio Tomas, S.L. can be found in kitchens across all five continents. From the inception of their first brand, SANTO TOMAS, until today, the Valencian values of TRADITION AND QUALITY instilled by its founders have been upheld.
