The best things in life are always the simplest. It is this the secret behind every successful company.

Day after day, the hard work of the founder and his helpers brought its fruits, transforming this small mill into a solid company, now run by the fourth generation, which enthusiastically faces the challenges of both the domestic and foreign markets with its head held high.

The company’s mission can be summed up in just a few words: quality control, careful selection of the raw material and state-of-the-art technology; great attention to the consumer’s health and safety; respect of the environment and social responsibility.

To make every meal a really special experience one has to use genuine and healthy foods which help towards a balanced diet. It is this commitment which best sums up Divella’s daily effort to satisfy all those who love authentic flavours.
