AN INNOVATIVE AND TRANSPARENT PRODUCTION PROCESS
We are in Teglio, in the heart of Valtellina, a valley rich in biodiversity where alpine nature dominates. Here, exposed to the sun, in the middle of the mountains and pure air, for three generations we have been working with buckwheat as our age-old tradition has taught us. We have always embraced the gastronomic culture that characterizes these places and with commitment, dedication and the right innovation we carry it forward with passion. Year after year, however, we have not stopped: we have done the research, we have grown and in our lines, we have inserted several essential raw materials to create unique and healthy dishes. Buckwheat, but also Corn, Quinoa, Millet, Rice, Amaranth and many other cereals included in the Gluten-Free category. We have been producing organic for over 30 years, a fact that testifies to our constant attention to the safety of production and the needs of an increasingly attentive market for quality. A continuous commitment to the satisfaction of our customers, also proven by our numerous corporate certifications.
In Valtellina, it is a centuries-old gastronomic tradition.
For this reason, we produce flours and buckwheat products thanks to which we can create both traditional recipes and tasty and original dishes. We are members and promoters of the Pizzocchero Academy, an association created to protect the dish that is the symbol of our land.
Everything starts from a seed, but there are seed and seed and there are cultivation and cultivation.
The difference lies in the attention to detail and constant care.
