ABOUT US


Molino Merano was founded in 1985, but its story began 600 years ago, – when the von Berg family started to produce flour varieties in the Bavarian town of Ansbach, Germany.
Today, Molino Merano is still a family business that continues to blend an ancient passion for milling with the principles of modern production processes: careful selection of raw materials, advanced technological systems, thorough checks at each stage of the process, utmost attention to customer needs. Initially, small and great Italian bread makers, but not only. Now, also the end users of the flour products, in all their varieties.

Molino Merano can indeed offer a wide range of flours, organic flours, gluten free flours, semi-finished products, semi-finished organic products, gluten free semi-finished products and even – quite obviously - cereals.

One of Molino Merano's strengths: being a real “cereal expert” that is always looking for new products to offer, amongst which ancient grains such as Triticum Dicoccum (medium spelt), the more renowned quinoa or the little known (and exotic) sorghum and teff–, without forgetting - of course - wheat, rye, khorasan Kamut® wheat, barley, oat, millet, buckwheat, corn, rice, etc.

Another one of Molino Merano's strength is the ability to create new products, to offer unusual blends and to be innovative in the – flour – industry, which has not been very ingenious since ancient times.

It is also for this reason that our signature is
"We grind great ideas".
