      ... benefits they can reap from joining and improving the protein content and yield of their crop. It was really good to see for myself the relationship built between Syngenta, the farmers, the collectors and De Matteis. The day was held in Foggia in the Syngenta experimental fields where they grow crops and treat them with different fertilisers/herbicides etc and thankfully Francesco and Gianluca translated the signs and explained more about wheat farming and the work Syngenta ...

      This week I have spent time learning more about the purchasing of wheat to be processed in the mill, the marketing of the De Matteis brands, and a bit more about quality checks carried out in the pasta factory lab before heading off to Naples to explore.

      I firstly sat with Francesco, the Raw Materials Purchasing Manager, who told me all about buying wheat and semolina. The wheat is harvested by farmers from the end of May until July, and is then stored by ...

For example, a Critical Control Point in the factory is that the liquid egg must be between 0 and 4 degrees. This is a CCP because raw egg would deteriorate both in terms of quality and microbiological activity if stored in a warm environment and therefore could be very dangerous to heath if consumed. Another CCP is having a metal detector check each product after it has been packed. ...

      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 ...
