Boasting 80 years of history, Loiudice semolina mill was born from the passion and drive of Massimo and his son, Pasquale, farmers from Altamura. An enterprise developed to promote Apulia’s most cherished crop, durum wheat.
The original mill was established in the city of Altamura, famous for its bread. Its founders strived to produce a semolina to satisfy even the most demanding of clients. Following in their father’s footsteps, Pasquale and his brother Donato years later launched a new plant to produce ‘semola rimacinata’ (double-milled semolina), the primary ingredient of Altamura’s celebrated bread.
In 1962 the Mill, rebuilt after a fire, was equipped with up-to-the-minute technology and machines capable of mass-production, all the while paying homage to tradition.
Today, Massimo has handed over the reigns of the family business to his daughters, Clelia and Maria and nephew, Antonio. Always seeking innovation, the fourth generation of the Loiudice family are looking to the future, equipped with a magnitude of experience and tradition, handed down from one generation to the next.
