... coming! It was a lovely end to a brilliant placement.

I have had a great time at De Matteis and have certainly learnt a lot! I'm surprised to say that I'm not fed up of pasta as I thought I would be. I am very grateful for everyone at De Matteis for putting their time and effort into helping me over the past 4 weeks, and would like to thank Guiditta at De Matteis and Emma at Daybreak Foods for organising my time there. I would also especially like to thank Vincenza ...

... seeds given and follow the advice, and this is a kind of insurance to the farmers as if the market price drops below this price, the farmer will still get the promised price by De Matteis. If the market price increases, De Matteis pay this plus a premium of 6%. When the project began 4 years ago, 100 farmers joined with a total of 1000Ha cultivated.

October 29th

Week 4

How is it only week 4??!! It feels like I have been In Italy for ages! Spent this morning with the man in charge of wheat purchasing. It is a complex job as the wheat price market fluctuates frequently and depends on loads of factors such as the weather, world usage and production. Francesco has to communicate with Fausto in the Mill to see what wheat (and which quality of wheat) is required when, and then purchase it. There are lots ...
