A success story

Over one hundred years ago, Valente Pivetti decided to build a steam-powered flour mill between Bologna and Ferrara, just a few miles from Cento: today as then, the mill is the soul of the Group, the symbol of our solidity and commitment to treasuring and re-interpreting a constantly changing and evolving tradition. The constant research for top quality and the introduction of increasingly new technologies have over the years allowed Molini Pivetti to become an absolute reference for the most demanding professionals in the milling sector.
