The care for the prime material

Wild or semi-wild fields

The grazing of the sheep and goats, provider of the factory prime material, is practiced in the wild or semi-wild fields, in compliance with the transhumance of the their flocks through the mountain sites during summertime and the marine sites during the winter period.
The milk collection happens early each morning, drawing the product directly from the sheepfolds or having it delivered straight from the breeders in the factory.
The milk supply system is a long and complex chain, consisting of several steps that require high quality standards of assertiveness.
