TRACEABILITY and METHODOLOGY
COLLABORATION WITH CREA
The CREA centre has engaged in a research and analysis programme to identify and characterise the best blends of flour for the Naturally version of the ‘Pinsa Romana’, made from cereals (soft wheat, spelt, rice) and pulses (soy, chickpeas and/or peas). Specifically, this work has optimised blends obtained using Food Product Design techniques and their characterisation in terms of product category, related technology and nutritional value.
The 12-month programme was coordinated for CREA-AN by Tiziana Amoriello and, for Naturally Pinsa, by Alessandro Bianchetti.
We distinctly favour ingredient produce from the Sabina area: cereals, pulses, Sabina PDO extra virgin olive oil and water from local springs.
Thanks to its fertile land, temperate climate, and the passion of its inhabitants, Sabina today is a district of excellence for the world of food, particularly the cultivation of cereals. It is also the home of agronomist Nazareno Strampelli and his cultivation research centre, one of Italy's most important genetic experts and a forerunner of the 'green revolution'.
Our promise is to guarantee high quality with a traceable supply chain, 100% Italian, free from pesticides, GMOs, preservatives and additives.
How do we achieve this? By implementing Blockchain systems as part of the production process. The Blockchain system is based on physical-digital certification networks that enable data to be confirmed by operators and verified by second and third parties within just 24 hours. Buyers will thus be able to check the validity and certifications of the entire supply chain and products.
How to combine tradition and authenticity with the demands of a dynamic, competitive, constantly growing market?
In our production facility, we prepare and knead dough using traditional artisanal techniques as much as possible. However, it is also supported by a 4.0 system, both for better control and supervision of the entire production process and energy efficiency to reduce environmental impact.
