“WE HAVE ALWAYS BEEN PRODUCING HIGH QUALITY SOFT WHEAT FLOURS.”

Our mission.

Molini Industriali Spa is a leading company in the processing of wheat, with particular reference to the production of wholemeal and semi-wholemeal flours.
We have always been producing high quality common wheat flours, respecting the ancient milling art, but with the latest generation technologies, which we proudly export all over the world.
We use about 80% of Italian common wheat, much more than the national average (50%).
The “100% Italian” lines are made from only Italian (from Emilia) wheat.

Two aspects are fundamental for us: the short production chain and the link with our territory and the Modena community.
Having the opportunity to be close to the raw material, therefore to our farmers and being able to offer a quality service is an element of great advantage and the element on which we focus.
The investments made have all gone in this direction. We had wheat farmers’ contribution that exceeded 30% in 3 years, a result that has given great satisfaction.

We need to strengthen our presence in the area especially for the historical value that this company has.
We believe in recent years we have done a lot to recover this territory and we are proud of it.
The New Mills are part of the experience of Modena, and today we are also engaged in the redevelopment of the northern area of Modena.

Our history.

1864

Shortly after the unification of Italy, the Mill becomes private.

1910

The Molino is purchased by the Costato families who, together with the Vacondio family, are the current owners.

1937

The village grows larger following the increase in the demand for manpower.
The main house and the workers’ houses are built around which a strongly
supportive community develops.

1950

The village becomes an example of the transition from
peasant to industrial Italy.

1960

With the economic boom, we witness the birth of the Modena Nord craft village
and industry becomes the driving sector at the expense of agriculture.
The Mill and the Village lose social and economic value.

'70 - '80

Serious economic problems endanger the continuation of industrial
activity.

'90 - '00

Economic revival of the mill: the Costato – Vacondio families decide to invest by expanding and diversifying production. The plant of Rubiera (former Ferruzzi) is acquired and the Dallari company of Bomporto and the activities of Molino Denti of Reggio Emilia and Molino Pineta of Ravenna are incorporated into Molini Industriali Spa.

from 2010 to today

A new industrial plan, with investments of several million Euros, leads to a continuous improvement in increasingly sustainable and environmentally friendly production. Molini Industriali participates in the first edition of “Open Mills” – conceived by Italmopa.
In view of this occasion, the brand new wheat storage facility, consisting of 17 silos, is also inaugurated.

Today We are committed to the redevelopment of part of the northern area of Modena, convinced that the solid link with the territory is the only way to safeguard our success and the historical legacy of this ancient village on the outskirts of Modena.

Our plants.

The Modena production site in Strada Attiraglio 113 has an area of approximately 21,000 m2 and is the storage and production centre. It processes 100 million kg / year of product, for a production value of 36 million Euros.

The new storage facility built next to the mill, and consisting of 17 silos, allows us to accommodate in excellent conditions, an ever increasing amount of wheat from Modena farmers.
In addition, a supply chain contract was signed for the cultivation and transfer of common wheat between Molini Industriali (leader), and 73 farms in the provinces of Modena, Bologna, Reggio Emilia, and Confagricoltura Emilia Romagna.
The agreement has a multi-year duration (expiring on 31 December 2024) and provides for a minimum annual contribution of 14 thousand 445 tons of raw material “exclusively sourced from the basic producers of the Emilia Romagna Region and in particular of the Emilia provinces of Modena, Bologna and Reggio Emilia”.

The Rubiera production site in via Emilia Est 33 has an area of approximately 16,000 m2 and is a storage centre with own railway connection.

We put passion, commitment and professionalism in what we do. But above all we put our face and our word.
We have created a team of people with skills and personalities, whose interactions converge towards the achievement of a specific and shared goal: customer satisfaction!
