Mill

A story of family

We were here before the car, before the television, before the smartphone. The Piantoni Family’s Milling Company’s history began in the far 1850.
Five generations have undertaken a search for quality, offering a constant improvement. In the course of time the company has been on the cutting-edge thanks to new solutions for products, to the evolution of the market requirements along with innovation through lab researches.

Molino Piantoni is located in Chiari (Bs) in the heart of Lombardy, in a fertile area which has over 600 years of history in the art of milling. It is a company with an Italian heart, and since all raw material working stages take place in our mill, the products are the essence of what is known as Made in Italy. Due to its undeniable warrant of top quality, the company has reached a highly respected position within the international framework so that it now represents an important reference point for foreign markets. To represent the Made in Italy it’s a great responsibility since it means to bear the name of Italy and its production all around the world in different sectors and particularly in that of pizza.
