GUARANTEE OF QUALITY AND FOOD SAFETY

In our product, handcraft and tradition melt with high quality standards.
We distinguish ourselves by :

- experience handed down from generation to generation

- respect for the tradition: we produce in the classic leaflets of 125g, never in the form of nests and skeins

- exclusive processing: some production steps are only made by hand according to the tradition pasta of Campofilone.

 

The philosophy of our company has always been focused on quality: an accurate method of production, from the selection of ingredients to the creation of the product, from highly qualified staff to the guarantee, from the control system to the certifications.

 

Quality and Safety: our pasta is free of preservatives, dyes, additives, stabilizers and GMOs.

The company is daily committed to ensure quality and safety in its products, making a systematic control in compliance with the regulations.

Analysis are performed to determine the physico-chemical, organoleptic and nutritional of the products features and the compliance with sanitary standards (HACCP).

Cooking and tasting tests are performed to evaluate the characteristics of the final product and/or new products.

We analyze consistency, uniformity of cooking, flavour and cooking yeld.
This check covers every production batch, from raw materials to packaging. By a specific sampling plan we check:

- raw materials: ingredients (flour, eggs) and packaging material

- final product

- packaged product

This ensures a healthy, safe and high quality product to the consumer and, at the same time, standard production and constant quality to the company.
The whole control process of quality is further supported and guaranteed by a series of voluntary certifications.


Highly skilled staff: the staff, competent and well trained, is regularly involved in training programs about issues related to quality systems and hygiene.


Tracking: the whole processing is computerized to allow full tracking of products.

This is a great guarantee for our customers and consumers since it makes possible to trace for every single packet of pasta the lot of flour and eggs used for the production allowing the control of the supply chain starting from the raw materials.
