ゆっくり乾燥

より高品質のパスタをお届けするために パスタ製造において、乾燥はパスタの質を決定する重要で難しい工程とされています。1889年ディ・チェコ社の創設者フィリッポ・ディ・チェコは、温風を使った乾燥方法を発明しました。これは『トレッカーニ百科事典』にも掲載される革命的なシステムです。それゆえ、ディ・チェコでは今日も基本的に彼が始めた低温でのゆっくり乾燥を使い続けているのです。温度が高いと質にも味にも悪影響が出ますが、市販パスタに関する最近の研究では、デュラム小麦のセモリナを使用したディ・チェコのパスタがなぜこの影響を受けないのかがはっきりしました。低温でゆっくり乾燥することで生まれる芳香は、パスタに独特の風味を与えます。また、セモリナ特有の黄色が伸びないパスタを保証してくれます。だから「より高品質」だと言えるのです。包装に付いた丸いマークには、DNVに認定された乾燥時間が記されています。乾燥時間はパスタの形によって違い、ショートパスタ9時間、ロングパスタ18時間、穴あきロングパスタ36時間となります。乾燥時間の記載は、お客様に透明な情報をお届けし、知識を得られた上で商品をお選びいただきたいというディ・チェコの思いがあってのことです。

Product Certification

(STP-ce-pcagro 38) De Cecco is the first producer of pasta in Italy that has received the product certification (issued by the DNV society, one of the most influential certifying institutions in the world) implementing the development that started some years ago with the adoption of the quality system ISO 9001:2000. This certification, by means of analyses and monitoring performed by an independent third-party institution, attests that the product conforms to the characteristics of excellence declared by the certified subject. The adoption of this standard allows these organoleptic and nutritional qualities to be visible. The certified parameters are constantly measured. With regard to this, product specifications quote that: “De Cecco is one of the few industrial pasta industries that, rather than increasing the quantity of products made, aims at preserving the quality of this product. And it is not generic "quality", which cannot be rendered better to the consumer, but quality based on practical data, on analytical parameters that are already object of constant measuring and monitoring. This is why De Cecco decided to certify the parameters of quality of its products: because without guarantees, you cannot have concreteness either; and without concreteness you cannot have true quality.”

ディ・チェコの全粒粉パスタとミラノ大学

ディ・チェコでは、自らの研究所で常時徹底的なチェックを行うだけでなく、外部機関にも自社パスタの品質を検証してもらおうと、名高いミラノ大学の食品、栄養、環境科学部(DeFENS)を選び、全粒粉デュラムセモリナパスタの品質の調査を依頼しました。全粒粉パスタのイタリア市場で約80%を占める10社のパスタをサンプルにした調査は、2015年、2017年に行われました。再び2019年に同10社のパスタの熱損傷(フロシン及びピラリン)の指標チェックが繰り返され、ほぼ過去と同様の結果が確認されています。お客様に正しい情報をお届けするため、この調査の重要部分を記載いたします。

EPD Certification

The Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) is a certification which objectively quantifies, according to internationally recognized scientific methods, the overall environmental impact of the production, marketing and consumption of a good or service. The EPD is based on Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) methodology, which takes into account all consumption of natural resources (water, energy, raw materials) and all releases into the environment (from CO2 though to waste) which occur, right from the cultivation stage through to the relevant packaging materials going to landfill. The LCA model also calculates the contribution of the product's life cycle to the main phenomena changing our environment, such as global warming, acid rain and water pollution. The EPD is a certification approved by an entity which is independent of the company (Environdec) with a review process that ensures the accuracy and validity of the data and calculation methods used. Holding an Environmental Product Declaration demonstrates a willingness to communicate – objectively, transparently and fully – the environmental impact of a business and the phenomena connected to it. The EPD permits the assessment of these impacts not only in absolute terms, but also by way of comparison between products and services from the same category (e.g. pasta, etc...) or from different supply and consumption chains. In this way, consumers and trade buyers can evaluate the comparative environmental impacts of their purchasing decisions. Finally, a completed EPD allows the company to have all the relevant and meaningful information at hand in order to put schemes in place to minimise the environmental impacts of its products.

For this reason, to integrate the policy for Quality, we have formalized the document of our Policy for Social Responsibility. Our history proves that everything is possible and that we will be able to achieve new goals thanks to our conduct: - considering employees as a strategic resource, by guaranteeing the respect of their rights and promoting their professional and personal development - considering suppliers as partners that have to be valorised, in terms of quality and of development with respect to social responsibility; - considering clients and consumers as protagonists in the success of De Cecco and its growth, always working to satisfy their requirements from a qualitative point of view, and from now onwards, we will also try to meet any requests that emerge concerning social responsibility.
