Welcome to Campobasso, Mulino Caputo's second home

26 May 2019

This year, as well as showing the general public how flour is a truly natural product - only wheat without additives - and debunking the many food prejudices about flour, Mulino Caputo opened, too, the gates of his second home: the mill in Campobasso.

Caputo, a single philosophy, two artisan homes: the plant in Naples and that in Campobasso. Let's explore in depth the Molisan headquarters of the Mill of Naples.


Molini A Porte Aperte is an event held in collaboration with Italmopa that brings under the spotlight the remarkable reality of the Italian milling companies, a sector that gives an important contribution to the Italian GDP, since it is estimated that 5.7 million tons of wheat are ground every year.


This year, as well as showing the general public how flour is a truly natural product - only wheat without additives - and debunking the many food prejudices about flour, Mulino Caputo opened, too, the gates of his second home: the mill in Campobasso.


Here are some more details about the Molisan face of Mulino Caputo.


● Cutting-edge technology
● A large production capacity, and
● A short supply chain


those are the 3 key concepts of our mill in Campobasso. Let's see together each element of this innovative system.


Technology. Built in collaboration with Buhler, a milling technology leader, the plant in Campobasso boasts the latest generation of machinery and technological controls with a step by step monitoring of each single phase of the entire production process of the Caputo flours, to assure a product always perfect, even with a large scale production.


Production capacity. The Molisan plant of Mulino Caputo can produce up to 380 tons of flour in 24 hours, thanks also to its excellent grain storage plant and the iron-built grinders.
Its production is mostly destined for export, due to the ease of movement for trucks and containers in the vehicle-dedicated area. The Neapolitan plant, on the other hand, can produce 270 tons of flour in 24 hours and is dedicated to local production.


Short supply chain. The proximity of the Campobasso plant to the Grano Nostrum supply chain and the supply of 100% Made in Italy raw materials by the farmers in the area make the Mulino Caputo plant in Molise the heart of a truly short supply chain project.


«Even if everything is the same in Naples as in Campobasso in terms of philosophy, quality and attention to the final product - concludes Antimo Caputo - we can think about the plant in Campobasso as to a very powerful naked motorbike that allows us to work better and better, fully respecting, in a technologically advanced way, the White Art's two-thousand-year old tradition».
