A modern factory that respects the tradition
Tradition and innovation, experience and expertise, quality of raw materials and above all love for pasta, made Alberto Poiatti a prestigious brand in the pasta market, and one of the most important and popular performers of the art of making pasta.
Over the past few decades, there have been numerous modernizations and expansion of the production facilities, merged in 2000 into the new factory in Santa Venerina, located in a place where mother nature has a leading role and designed to be in harmony with the environment that surrounds.
Modern and innovative, both in structure and in the technologies used, ensuring efficiency, safety and quality, the factory covers an area of about 50,000 square meters, of which 10,000 are covered and used for production and warehouse.
The most advanced machinery in the industry and selected grains, allow the production of pasta with really excellent features, whose fullness enhances all the sauces and condiments, from the simplest to the most imaginative, and surprising every time with the goodness of its taste.
The water used for mixing is the one that flows from the springs of Mount Etna, renowned for its purity, and during the pasta-making, the superfine durum wheat, chosen with care, are mixed under vacuum to ensure the hydration homogeneity, a golden color and an intense scent, absence of oxidation and the best quality of gluten.
The final quality also, while respecting the most ancient rules of making pasta, is guaranteed by compliance with the HACCP program and IFS and BRC standards (for both Higher Level Certification) certified by DNV.
Thanks also to the quality controls carried out by the internal laboratory and the skilful mixture of fine grains, the pasta Alberto Poiatti today meets the most selective needs in terms of taste, quality and authenticity.
