The eldest sons of Dante, Millo and Enzo, who had worked as assistants in a mill based in Carpi, began to help their father together with their younger brothers. They were in charge of running the mill, while their father looked after purchases and sales.

After ten years of hard work, in the 1940s, they managed to buy the mill and the first rolling mills, and transformed Molino Verrini into a modern and fully automated roller mill.

In the meantime, the Verrini family was growing bigger, meaning that they could rely on additional work force. When in 1952 they had the opportunity to run the mill of Carpi, much larger and more efficient than the previous one, they finally managed to buy it.

In order to guarantee the local origin of raw materials, in April 2016 the company obtained the UNI EN ISO 22005 certification, the reference standard for food traceability, and started the production of its certified “0 km” flour, thanks to the “short supply chain” agreements made with local farmers.

In November 2018 Molino Verrini obtained the certification for organic production in accordance with the European Regulation EC 834/2007. For this type of production, Molino Verrini uses exclusively Italian organic wheat.
Today, Molino Verrini, thanks to the knowledge and experience gained with four generations of millers, is able to offer a range of premium quality products and tailored services to its customers, from delivery to after-sales. This is also one of the reasons why the company has been highly valued by customers for over 90 years.
