"Daily controls guarantee quality'"
QUALITY CONTROL. Rossi Mills is equipped with a laboratory for quality control of the flours produced.

Similar controls are performed on the processed product in order to verify the attainment of rheological “premium class”, with a guarantee for our clients of consistent quality for every type of application.
The tests carried out are of chemical (moisture content as per ICC Standard no. 110, ashes, official method) and rheological types:
- ALVEOGRAPH (NG Chopin – A.A.C.C. 54-30-A1194-ICC Standard no. 121)
- CHOPIN CONSISTOGRAPH (A.A.C.C.54-55)
- BRABENDER FARINOGRAPH (A.A.C.C.54-12)

In addition, microbiological and filth tests are constantly performed on samples of wheat and flour.

We produce quality since 1898
Rossi Mills was established on the Ripafratta canal between the Serchio River (Mount Sillano – Lucca) and the Arno River (Florence – Pisa), which was built in 1566 by the Grand Duke of Tuscany, Cosimo de’ Medici. In 1998, the gold medals from the Pisan Industrial Union, reserved to successful entrepreneurs, and from the Chamber of Commerce of Pisa in acknowledgement of business merit, testified to the first century of the Roberto Rossi Mills. Five generations of the family of entrepreneurs have uninterruptedly guided, and continue to guide, the business since Giovanni Rossi purchased the Ripafratta mill in 1898, continuing and increasing the activity begun in the family mill located in nearby Quosa. Technology and progress are the basis of the transformation that has characterized the history of the milling industry, with water operation for the movement of the millstones, so ancient as to be traced back to the 4th century BC, as information regarding the Augustan Empire reveals. In the Brevi dei Molinari (literally, Mill Briefs) of 1286, the Republic of Pisa, supplied by the mills of Calci, Lugnano and Quosa, governed the height of the water falls, the price of milling, the weighing of the flour and fines for offenders. The Ripafratta canal, completed in 1566 upon the will of Cosimo de’ Medici, was known as the “mill ditch” or “the grind”, because its exceptionally high hydraulic power favored the establishment of new mills along the canal, as well as the transport of goods and people between Ripafratta, San Giuliano Terme and Pisa. Among these, the Ripafratta mill was also established, known today as “Roberto Rossi Mills S.p.A.”. With the advent and diffusion of electricity in the first decades of the twentieth century, the old millstones were replaced with more efficient mill cylinders and mechanical tumblers, allowing for a significant increase in production and a remarkable improvement in quality that persists up to the present day.
