Flavio Pagani’s Valdigrano was established in 1997 in Rovato, Franciacorta, Italy, as a family enterprise to continue the third generation family tradition of pasta production.
The Valdigrano range includes durum wheat semolina pasta, Kronos durum wheat semolina pasta, egg pasta, whole wheat durum semolina pasta and organic pasta, brands under its own brand, as well as through private labels and distributors.
Production capacity, currently over 100,000 tons, is constantly on the rise and as much as 60% is destined for export. Today, the high-tech production system incorporates 5 production lines, 19 packaging machines, automated logistics and a computerized control centre to ensure utmost efficiency, safety and quality.
Product quality is guaranteed by full compliance with HACCP standards. Valdigrano is certified to the Global Standard for Food Safety Version 7 (Grade A) and IFS International Food Standard Version 6 (Higher Level) by CSQA Certifications. Valdigrano is also certified for Halal and Kosher production. Organic products are certified by ECOGRUPPO Italy.
Valdigrano has always been devoted to the production of organic pasta, both under its own Valbio brand and through private labels, and obtained its first certification in 2000.
Valdigrano organic products are distributed both in Italy and abroad. The quality of Valdigrano production is the fruit of careful selection of raw materials: organic wheat comes largely from the national territory (75%) and is processed entirely by Italian mills.
Demand for organic pasta is in constant growth not only in the catering sector (e.g. schools and hospitals), but also in the retail sector, with increasing importance given to healthy and environmentally sustainable choices.
Over the past five years, in perfect line with this trend, the Valdigrano Organic division has more than doubled the volume, with more than 78% for private labels. And, recently, its traditional organic range has been added to by the Valbio Whole wheat durum semolina pasta, produced from organically grown durum whole wheat semolina.
