We are world leaders in the branded rice sector and the second branded pasta manufacturer worldwide.
Ebro subsidiaries are distributed over 23 countries in Europe, America, Asia, Northern Africa and we have a portfolio of over 60 brands.
Our stock is quoted in the Madrid Stock Exchange Market (Ibex 35 company). The Hernandez family is the reference shareholder since 2003. All together, with other members of the Board (essentially other Spanish families), control 44.6% of the equity. The rest is freely floated in the market.
Being our products strongly related with raw materials our relationship with rice and durum wheat farmers has always been very strong and we consider this as a very valuable asset.
Our balance sheet is very strong. Nowadays we are debt free and we have a strong cash flow generation. We have the clear ambition of reinforcing our international leadership in our core businesses.
Breakdown of Ebitda
The history of our Rice Division tracks back to a business started by the Hernandez Family in Spain in 1950.
After its full integration in Ebro Foods in 2001, we have taken over 10 rice businesses throughout the world: Denmark, Hungary, Finland, Germany, UK, USA, Canada, Egypt, Thailand and India most of them branded companies but as well sourcing capacity (silos and mills).
Two key milestones for us were the acquisition on Riviana Foods in 2004 (374 MUSD) and Minute Rice in 2006 (280 MUSD). That development allowed us to become US leader in rice. That added to our pasta activity created a 1,0 BUSD sales group in US and Canada.
Nowadays we are the largest rice processor in the world with leading brands in most countries in Europe, USA and Canada.
We have a strong expertise in raw materials. One of our strengths is having a strong foothold in the largest rice production regions in the world, with a strong infrastructure and a flexible balance sheet.
We are using our brands to open up new sectors, including convenience foods, pasta, purées, porridges and new products.
Management raw materials, production and packaging, technologies and brands are vital for our project.

We are a Food Group specialized in products highly related with their raw materials, rice and durum wheat. Originally we started as a sugar and dairy company and nowadays we are focused in rice and pasta therefore our relationship with our raw material providers is very important.
We maintain strong and long lasting relations with the local farmers; we understand that the relationship between farmers and industrials is a long term one, based on cooperation and respect.
We purchase around 2 million tones of rice a year and some 1 million tones of durum wheat what shows the magnitudes we are used to trade.
We have a clear and strong commitment to develop ourselves as a world leading group in meal solutions based on rice and pasta and therefore we highly invest in R+D and marketing. We want to upgrade our portfolio with more value added products.
We are a Group with high speed of adaptation to the environment and specificities of each country. We have developed a skill of integration, always respecting the local cultures of each business and local management.
