The business started with 39 founding members, and they doubled within 24 months.
Located on the north bank of the Po river, the plant began with a production of 200,000 kg of Grana Padano PDO processed from 3,000,000 kg of milk, making a name for itself as the local state-of-the-art firm, regarding both production and animal husbandry, from forage to milk.
After joining the Consorzio di Tutela (Protection Consortium), between 1999 and 2000, the business modernised its equipment and expanded its maturing warehouses; seven years later it introduced a 90,000 kg capacity computerized separator that made the use of the traditional separating trays obsolete.
Procedure management control was later enhanced by integrated production recording and monitoring systems, which enable tracking and tracing all stages of production, with a view to obtaining quality certification.
These are impressive numbers, if one considers the many awards obtained by the dairy and the well-known quality of all local production.
Antonio Poli, lead cheese maker of the Padana dairy since 2005, who diplomatically does not make any statement on this matter, however confirms this to us through the proud look he gives his colleagues and the many wheels of cheese produced with the morning’s work.
