On the “ridge of the escarpment of the Paderno plateau” – where Leonardo, enchanted by the beauty of the place, catches inspiration for his paintings from the scenary of the river – it was built the first electrically driven mill in 1882. The Colombo family succeeded the founder, Federico Wyttenbach, in the early of the 20th century, and turned the mill into a modern industrial reality whose brand name would become famous for the quality of its flour.
Today, after a century of premium quality tradition, Molino Colombo remains a landmark for those who consider excellence the target to pursue. The use of the best grains is essential in order to stay at the top of an extremely competitive market since the secret of the Colombo’s flour derives from the excellence of the selected wheats which are milled with techniques that combine the modernity of the machinery with an ancient skill in using it.
We do not work to be the first, but to be the best. This principle has always been our company philosophy. “Working for excellence”.
For us, quality is not an abstarct concept, but attention to the product, to the customer services and to the regular training of our men who work to achieve it, in a scenary that combines tradition and innovation in respect of the highest crafts’ values.
Our production philosophy is marked on the promotion of the highest cratfs’ values.
However, today it is possible to produce excellent flours without the use of additives, which if on one hand may improve the performances of flours, on the other hand alter the flavors and the aromas which today are not founded in our ovens.
It is our urgent efforts searching raw materials and maintaing production methods that allow us to exalt the aromas and the flavors of one-time bread.
