Giovanni Battista, company president; Samuele Girolomoni, managing parntner/farmer; and Gianluca Bettarelli, general manager visited Ocrim’s headquarters at the beginning of March to sign the contract for the mill.
The semolina produced at the mill will be selected for transport directly to the pasta processing plant, which is already present at the Girolomoni company and is located next door. The cultivation of the raw material, the harvest, cleaning, grinding and, finally, the production of pasta takes place within a radius of just a few meters, resulting in an organic product, locally conceived and produced.
The facility will be fully automated and equipped with cutting-edge technology manufactured and implemented by Ocrim in recent years.
Girolomoni is an Italian organic agricultural company with a history spanning more than 40 years, founded in Isola del Piano, Pesaro-Urbino, Italy, by Gino Girolomoni. It is considered the leading organic farm in Italy. It differs from other organic agricultural companies because of its all-around organic culture and philosophy, prioritizing its founding values and honesty over any market strategy in order to grow, Ocrim said.
Ocrim said the Girolomoni mill represents the beginning of a bond between two companies that share the same modus operandi and the same passion for work, people and the local area. Both Ocrim and Girolomoni carry out all their production and logistic processes in Italy, at their own facilities, with their founding values as their focal points.
