“Agroalimentare De Vita” is situated in an agriculturalregion, well known as “the Italian barn”, on Daunia hills which dominate theflat area of Foggia province, among the ancient agricultural centres ofCasalnuovo Monterotaro, Casalvecchio di Puglia and Torremaggiore. It’s herethat nature proves extremely generous with positive weather conditions togetherwith the configuration of the very fertile land, offering the highly concentratedproduction of durum wheat. The De Vita industrial complex is situated where, inthe 13th century there was the ancient Benedettini monastery of “San Matteo diSculgola”. Already in those days the best wheats were cultivated, preceding thewell known “Capelli”, which turned yellow on the sweet surrounding hills onlyfew years ago. De Vita family is integrated within this background rich intradition, vocation and innovation, transmitting the passion towards an ancientwork made up of passion and devotion.
The rich scents and intense colours of the Daunian mountains sum up the reason for this perfect coexistence. This is undoubtedly reflected in the philosophy of the company Molino De Vita which shows respect for tradition on a daily basis through its work, a value that has been passed on from father to son. Remembering the past and looking to the future, the new owners of this young company are enriching the experience inherited from the founders integrating tradition, innovation and research. Molino De Vita is located in a complex territory, fascinatingly rugged and incredibly generous, where the sweetness of the slopes and the fragility of the clay coexist in perfect balance, where man and earth are still capable of loving each other.
The wind, whether gentle summer breeze or bitter blast, is always a bearer of life. Especially when the air is free from contamination, we can fully appreciate its vital function. Therefore Molino De Vita has built its own processing plants far from the big cities, away from their smog and urban frenzy. At Molino De Vita you not only breathe fresh air, but somehow you also eat it. This is because air is a fundamental element in the production process; for example pneumatic transport systems are used to move the product through the processing stages or heat treatment is used to prevent contamination after the milling process.
