... smooth and the packaging is easy to open. Once the product is checked against the standards, it has to be either accepted and sent out to Sainsbury’s, or rejected where the product must be quarantined and not released from the factory.

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 ...
