CEPI’s emphasis on customised and fully automated solutions extends to its flour cooling system, which is essential for monitoring temperatures and ensuring consistency in baked goods
Riccardo Satta, Area Manager and R&D Technologist at CEPI Spa has two decades of food industry experience both in R&D and in the manufacture of bulk-handling installations. In CEPI, he handles R&D supporting the engineering department in finding the most suitable technical solutions for materials and food products, as well as supporting customers with the development of their installations.

What is the history of CEPI Spa and its expertise?
CEPI designs, manufactures and commissions bulk-handling systems for the storage, conveying and metering of raw materials, as well as fully integrated automation and technologies to complete all production processes. As a family-run company with an international outlook, CEPI is based in Italy and operates globally, with offices in Malaysia to coordinate operations in the Asian market and a network of local partners spanning the five continents.
Since 1985, we have worked with the most important companies from all sectors of food manufacturing. Having centered research, flexibility and customisation since inception, CEPI’s mission goes beyond assembling food processing equipment: we build turn-key installations that manage the entire production line from storage to dosing, and develop specialised solutions to match diverse and evolving needs of materials and processes across the planet.

This vision extends to the breadth of services we provide, giving you access to a wealth of expertise and innovation at each stage of the project.

All these stages are managed internally and with continuity through all operations and all-encompassing support, we can give each project the care it deserves...
