Demetra operates in two modern production units located in the industrial area of Morbegno-Talamona in Sondrio, Italy.
The first unit covers a total area of over 10,000 m² and comprises the goods-in and raw material selection department, production, a cutting-edge laboratory for in-house quality control, administrative offices and the headquarters of the Demetra Food Academy, the Demetra school of excellence that integrates a team of specialists, promoter chefs and pizza technicians, to ensure constant support for the sales and marketing department.
The second production unit, covering an area of more than 20,000 m², houses the finished products labelling, packaging, storage and despatch divisions. With a capacity of almost 8000 pallets and thanks to efficient automated order preparation lines, this division is geared up to current sales and the future goals that our company expects to achieve.
