    ... 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.

They produce 500 tonnes of pasta per day which I think is pretty impressive, and ...

    Italy has more public holidays than England, 13 compared to 8!!! My trip has coincided with Tutti i Santi (all saints day) and so Thursday is a day off, and the company has decided Friday will be too!

    October 29th
    This morning I went over the HACCP (Hazard analysis and critical control points) plan with Giuditta. She improved the plan dramatically upon joining the company earlier this year and it is now a very effective system. Food suppliers must have a ...

    ... Japan are very highly focused on quality and perfection. A good example of this is a story Gianluca told me from his previous job which was at a factory that produced whipped creams in those pressurised canister things. When they first started supplying Japan, a batch was rejected and the customer refused to pay because on the white cans there was a coloured dot the size of the mark you would make by touching a pen to a piece of paper!!
