Because of the complexity of the factors that influence the quality of the product, San Vitale dairy has taken a series of measures to ensure that the product is healthy and genuine and has excellent qualities. Among these measures, the most important is the direct control of 35-40% of the processed milk, coming from farms owned by the dairy owner , where the philosophy of the food chain involves direct management of all the operations concerning sowing, harvest, cow feeding, breeding and milking systems, all the refined, critical operations that make for top quality milk.

As far as the other farms that provide San Vitale dairy with their milk, the factory has adopted a control system that involves the help of internal and external technicians who in addition to checking the practical aspects concerning, for example, the hygiene and the sanitization of the equipment, the quality of the raw materials and so on, also provide technical support for the full management of a farm in order to reach a larger production of high quality milk.
