Strictly Apulian wheat, stone peeled and slowly ground. Coarse-grained semolina mixed with water from the Caposele and Cassano Irpino springs. Pasta drawn through bronze and dried at low temperatures. It is the identikit of Granoro's Dedicato pasta, now narrated in new website just inaugurated by the historic pasta factory of the Mastromauro family.
Puglia on your plate
The challenge is won. Making good pasta with only durum wheat ripened in the Apulian sun is possible. The Dedicato project demonstrates this, with a supply chain that starts from the farmers of 250 Apulian farms.
The project was born in 2012 to enhance and support the production of quality durum wheat in Puglia (a region that has always been known as the 'granary of Italy') through a supply chain agreement that brings together important partners in the area that guarantee the production of 15.000 tons of high quality wheat produced in Puglia.
The new site Granoro's web traces the entire supply chain - from field to table - with images, information and video stories of the farmers.
'Our tradition it is closely linked to the territory. With the Dedicato project we want to contribute to strengthening a direct link between farmers and consumers, based on the sharing of values such as respect for the environment, the recovery of tradition, the genuineness of Apulian products', says Marina Mastromauro, CEO of the Granoro Pastificio.
Il place by Granoro also tells about the other products that complete the 'basket' of authentic flavors of Puglia, the pillars of the Mediterranean diet, Monocultivar Coratina PDO Terra di Bari - Castel del Monte extra virgin olive oil, canned tomatoes grown in Puglia, lentils, cicerchie and chickpeas from Altamura and the Alta Murgia Park.
