“QUALITY… IN THE RAW MATERIAL, PROCESSING AND RELATIONS.”
The Quality Departement
Quality, for us, is not an abstract concept, but a choice that we renew every day and it manifests itself in three shades.
Everything starts with the selection of the raw material, the soul of our products, undisputed source of taste and authenticity. We transform exclusively 100% Italian daily milk, coming from selected and certified Piedmont stables – that breed purebred Friesian cows, queens in the highest quality milk production – and from Piedmont and Lombardy goat farms, breeding mainly Saanen and Camosciata.
Then, quality in processing, which is based on experience and passion that distinguish two generations of professionals. Craftsmanship and technology coexist thanks to the effort of experts that process milk manually even today and to the support of advanced industrial machinery. Milk, lactic ferments, 100% Italian and not derived from genetically modified microorganism give rise to a blaze of flavors and aromas; rennet, Italian as well and not GMO and the finest quarry fine salt complete our products, keeping unchanged its flavor. Any additives are banned, with a view to goodness and genuineness.
Finally, quality in relations, as confirmed by the clarity, transparency and honesty that outline the common thread of our company policy, to protect and enhance partners, buyer and consumers.
“FROM THE OUTSET OUR PRODUCTION CHAIN IS QUALITY ASSURANCE.”
The Quality department team
Our company is always looking for the quality that only a short chain, controlled and certified, can provide.
The process that turns milk into our cheeses begins in the over 40 stables selected in Piedmont where is bred the best dairy cattle: the Friesian bred. Nutrition and feed quality are the key elements to obtain milk at the highest level: for this reason, we feed our cows with mixed dry feed as cotton, soybean, corn and hay.
With Spega brand, cow milk production chain has been improved with goat milk, the first controlled and certified in Italy, for processing into cheese. We have carefully selected over 10 stables that typically for breed Saanen and Camosciata purebred goats, the best for the production of a tasty milk by the excellent nutritional values.
As cow also goats are fed with dry feed, mainly composed by hay, corn, cotton.
The cattle and goat farms localization guarantees a daily availability of fresh milk into our factory: we feel its scent and freshness every day, in a multisensory experience of smells, tastes and emotions.
“TRADITION RHYMES WITH INNOVATION: TO BE, TO DO, TO GROW”
THE PRODUCTION DEPARTMENT TEAM
The process leading from milk pasteurization in polyvalent “tanks” to fresh cheeses salting and aged cheeses maturation sees the skilled hands of our cheese makers operating in synergy with the most advanced technology, in a happy combination between craft and industrial activities.
Advances plants and machinery constantly monitor the quality parameters that we always intend, to guarantee to our customers an absolute food safety.
To confirm this, after milk has been analysed, our expert cheesemakers set masterfully the optimal ingredients dosages and start the transformation process where just the human hand can assure quality, goodness and genuineness. During the basic production phases the machine stops and waits for the approval by the cheesemaker, who, with parental attention, constantly watches over the correct procedure and makes any necessary changes.
