Sponsored: Brambati Group, Lavazza’s partner, thanks to reliability, constant innovation, flexibility and technological research
A partnership that began in 2014, with the test of a first roaster of Brambati Group by one of the global coffee leaders and continued throughout the years with multiple collaborations aimed at modernising the plants of certain production sites of Lavazza Group.
Today this collaboration earns a significant confirmation: Lavazza has in fact commissioned three new latest generation roasters from Brambati S.p.A., choosing to rely on the cutting-edge technological solutions of the Oltrepo Pavese company and its know-how in the creation of customised coffee processing systems. The historic Piedmontese company, which boasts over a century of excellence and which has become the symbol of Italian coffee in the world, “ambassador” of our lifestyle and the values of our country, has decided to assign an extremely significant order to a Made in Italy company for the supply of roasting machines and relative plant engineering. In addition to the roasters, in fact, Brambati will assist Lavazza in the expansion of the existing green coffee and roasted coffee plant. In particular, for green coffee, the expansion consists in increasing the storage capacity of the current plant, with the addition of complete conveyor lines for increased flexibility. For roasted coffee, the expansion includes product dosing and control systems, with the addition of different types of pneumatic, mechanical and disc conveyors, in addition to the development of the storage section.
It is a great commercial success for Brambati Group and a further positive confirmation of its production and manufacturing philosophy which has achieved great acclaim in the international market and which, in this case, is the culmination of a collaboration that has already lasted seven years, during which the authoritative Turin-based company, with over 125 years of history behind it, was able to test the reliability of Brambati Group and the validity of the proposed design solutions, with automation systems, services and “turnkey” plants,” which cover all raw material processing stages prior to packaging.
One of the key strengths of Brambati Group lies in its capacity to differentiate its proposals based on the specific needs of its customers, a direct result of a strong ability to listen and to develop “ad hoc” solutions, combined with excellent and constant customer assistance service, active 24/7.
This is precisely one of the aspects highlighted by Fabrizio Brambati, chief executive officer and president of Brambati Group: “We have made great strides and an enormous effort, even during the pandemic, to ensure our assistance never fails: our customers have always been served even remotely, we have organised remote webinars for companies all over the world, we make extensive use of virtual commissioning, so our technicians are able to carry out tests and train operators online abroad to ensure the continuity of our high quality standards, a crucial aspect for a company that produces over 30 tons of coffee every hour, 24 hours a day. We are extremely satisfied that this commitment has been recognised by a major company such as Lavazza, which has achieved the excellence known to consumers worldwide thanks to its use of high quality raw materials and the utmost attention to production processes.”
Lavazza is in fact rightly demanding both in terms of quality standards and attention to the selection of suppliers according to criteria of merit, reliability, competitiveness, respect for the environment and social commitment. Brambati Group was confirmed after an accurate examination step, including not only tests and trials on the machines, but also an evaluation of the company from a corporate point of view, as well as financial reliability, corporate welfare and impact on the environment and on the territory, and in this context the results achieved by Brambati Group, in collaboration with prominent Italian university institutes, are highly significant: from energy saving to process tolerability, with the use of the most advanced emission abatement systems.
With these words, Eleuterio Quagliarini, chief operations officer of Lavazza Group, comments: “High technology, reliability and attention to environmental impact are the values that led us to choose Brambati as a partner for this project to expand our production plants. Lavazza seeks excellence on every level, from the selection of the coffee to the cup: the production process, therefore, thanks to the introduction of cutting-edge technological solutions, plays a crucial role in guaranteeing the excellent quality of each of the over 30 billion cups of Lavazza coffee consumed each year around the world”.
