We mainly process durum wheat flour and semolina for the markets of bakery, biscuits and large-scale retail in maxi-size packages. Simec is the first cog in a complex machine, the Cellino Group, which controls the entire production chain from seed to table. In addition to the Simec mill, the Group manages a pasta factory, a biscuit factory, a feed mill and a distribution chain.
We also import pulses, cereals and protein meals (mainly sunflower and soya), products that are then used in the regional livestock sector.
The factory at the entrance to the port allows us to handle incoming ships 24 hours a day, 7 days a week with considerable savings in landing, logistics and energy costs. A photovoltaic system meets around 10 per cent of Simec’s needs, which are particularly energy-intensive by nature and have led us to rationalise and concentrate our work in the lowest price bands.
