The laboratories

Each of our mills has a laboratory and a bakery to check the consistency of behaviour of the flours intended for our bakery and industrial customers.

All our flours are tested in our laboratories to check that each type of flour is compliant and meets specifications.

  • Microbiology (total flora, coliforms, yeasts and moulds)
