All of this is possible thanks monitoring of the production process that runs along the entire integrated and traced supply chain, which includes one-to-one contracts with about a thousand farms». Two other innovative products that have just been launched are the “Pronti e sani”, delicious mixes in 4 recipes, certified VeganOK, based on 100% Italian wheat, legumes and fruit, ready to eat or used as a compendium for salads or heated up, and the “Spaghettone”, the biggest spaghetti in the Pasta Armando line. Its drawing was devised by the chef and testimonial Alessandro Borghese and it is 100% Italian wheat without glyphosate and pesticide residues. «Innovation can also be found in the production processes, on the PastaSense line, one of the most modern in Italy, which applies artificial intelligence to just-in-time controls, achieving greater efficiency with less waste of resources».
