THE PASTA FACTORY
Flavio Pagani‘s company, Valdigrano, was founded in 1997 as a family business.
However, the know-how and experience gained by the Pagani family have deeper roots: three generations of the family have been producing Italian pasta with passion and dedication for over seventy years.
Located in Rovato, in the heart of Franciacorta, in harmony with the surrounding environment, the Valdigrano factory is cutting-edge and innovative, both in terms of facility and in terms of the production technologies used, thus guaranteeing efficiency, safety and quality.
Being a young company is one of the strengths of Valdigrano, which has been able to set up production as a real high-tech system now including 5 production lines, 18 packaging machines and automatic logistics, controlled during each phase by a computerised system.
The company covers a surface area of 22,100 square metres, of which 15,300 square metres are covered and used for production and as a warehouse. A cutting-edge facility made possible thanks to continuous research and innovation. An example is the third short pasta production line, developed thanks to the advice of Valdigrano experts, one of the first of its kind, able to integrate the mixing and drying phases.
But there’s more. An essential role is played by the test lab, where the different raw materials are tested and their potential is compared. Research also continues outside the laboratory, in all areas where people purchase and consume, thus revealing their taste. It is there that it is possible to discover the latest trends and get ideas for innovative products able to satisfy the tastes of new consumers.
A success proven by product quality but also by the numbers that continue to grow year by year: in thirty years, the company has increased its production capacity fivefold.
The best product is one that is designed to make people happy.
The Valdigrano product range includes durum wheat semolina pasta, whole wheat pasta and organic pasta.Valdigrano supplies the best large-scale distribution chains in Italy and abroad, and much more. The HORECA segment is a significant sector for the company, covering 25% of the pasta production.
It is a particularly demanding segment in terms of product profile and business logistics, but characterised by a high level of loyalty. In this sector, Valdigrano has emerged thanks to the qualitative characteristics of its products – particularly the high protein content and good cooking properties – and, above all, thanks to efficient logistics services in terms of accurate and timely deliveries.
A HISTORY MADE UP OF PEOPLE, THE MOST PRECIOUS ASSET.
