Technology to feed a growing world

The strength of a fully integrated Group. A milestone for the future.

In 2011 we were able to reap the first rewards of a real Group policy, appreciating the synergic potential of a joint work oriented towards the same objectives. Pavan is now a Group of companies fully integrated in order to cover the entire supply chain: from unloading of the grain to the packaged product ready for sale on the shelf. And it is in this light that we are continuing to pursue a strategy aimed at being a technological partner able to actively contribute towards global growth through increasingly efficient and rational solutions, allowing the consumption of food products to be extended by our Customers.

At the end of 2011, the world’s population exceeded 7 billion, growing by over 150 million people a year. With these numbers in mind, and a clear corporate mission, we wanted to introduce the new payoff ”Technology to feed a growing world”.

Innovation

Sustainability

Our clients are our point of reference. The alpha and the omega of all our activities. 30% of our proceeds are generated by clients that didn’t even exist 10 years ago, or were serviced by our competitors. Satisfying their requests with state of the art technologies, providing only top quality service, is not our only objective. In fact, we believe in helping our clients’ business, by sharing with them our technological and scientific innovation, which is our most important corporate asset.

Innovation is the propelling engine of all our industrial activities: 25% of our present revenues come from technologies that didn’t exist 10 years ago. Pavan Group develops, integrates and provides complete, full service manufacturing solutions, constantly upgrading their engineering and manufacturing processes, to increase customer satisfaction, so that technology can become the key element for new business opportunities, guaranteeing final consumers only top quality food.

Pavan Group operates complying only with ecofriendly standards, identifying any critical aspect and monitoring those that might have any environmental impact. For instance, all our newest plants utilize 25% less energy than those built 10 years ago. The sustainability of all our industrial processes are always guaranteed by strict operative protocols, and by the constant involvement of our staff, each for its own competences, at all levels.

Pavan Group - Annual Report 2011

Creating significant economies of scale, without forgoing flexibility.

Pavan Group - Annual Report 2011

Economic scenario 2011 saw the fruition of several characteristic aspects of the Group’s business strategy, with the first integrated contracts for the supply of mill and pasta factory. We followed a plan aimed at proposing medium to large size complete lines, with capacity up to 7,000kg/h. We deliberately did not push the technology beyond this limit, as the mature markets have shown signs of optimisation of production capacities within this dimension: plants of this size enable our customers to achieve significant economies of scale, without any sacrifice in terms of flexibility. On the basis of recent signs and feedback, the market is confirming this choice, appreciating the plants proposed by Pavan, also for the balance between capacity and flexibility. In 2011 we achieved good success in the installations, respecting the

times agreed with customers and generating production capacities at times even higher than those required in the design stage. In Europe and North America, like in all mature markets, we have pursued a strategy aimed at enabling our customers to diversify the offer, in particular by promoting innovative lines for the production of fresh pasta and ready meals, with high convenience. These are food products with a high profit margin, allowing our customers more profit in markets able to assimilate the worth of a ”premium” category food, allowing time saving and, above all, maintaining a consumption experience comparable to that of the most refined culinary tradition

by proposing a technology that allows our customers to obtain an optimised production of large quantities of finished products, has enabled us to achieve excellent business results, with significant installations in the area of pasta and for the snack division. In 2011, therefore, we can say that we have successfully consolidated the leadership position already acquired. India and China are experiencing a moment of exponential growth also in the food sector. The Group’s increased attention to these areas has enabled us to consolidate longstanding relationships and create new business opportunities.

For Pavan, Africa and Latin America continue to be market areas with significant growth rates. Following the physiological trend of these areas,

Packaging division: two integrated, independent and synergic brands The Pavan packaging brands are increasingly synergic and focused on their specific markets. In recent years the market for pasta packaging plants has been enjoying a period of considerable dynamism, both in relation to recently started production facilities, and for investments in the renewal and modernisation of existing plants. The Pavan Group packaging division is benefiting from important investments made in recent years and regarding the application of particularly efficient technological innovations, which now make it a reference manufacturer, especially in packaging for long pasta. In general the market is rewarding innovation, protected by registered patents and confirmed by the levels of performance shown in the field, the reliability and the economic competitiveness of these machines. Although 2011 saw important

contracts signed worldwide, the markets that have given us the greatest satisfaction were Turkey, Nigeria and Central and South America. North Africa, Europe and the Middle East are areas in which we found excellent opportunities, that will materialise during the course of 2012. In 2011 we laid the foundations for a further step in the planned rationalisation and optimisation of Group synergies. Operational integration of the Stiavelli and Dizma brands began, which provides for unification of the production units in Uzzano (Pistoia) aimed at concentrating the expertise relevant to packaging machines, without affecting application contexts of the two brands’ products, which will retain their specific characterisation. In particular, while Stiavelli will focus its attention and resources on increasingly specialised development in the field of food packaging, Dizma

will focus on flow packs for non-food products; a sector in which, for years, it has been an interesting example of excellence in terms of flexibility and possibilities of customisation of the solutions offered. With this renewed organisation, the Packaging Division has greater energies and resources to address the challenges of a constantly changing market in an increasingly specific and precise way.

“

The market rewards the innovation of those who can guarantee reliable and competitive machines.

Claudio Zavatta Chief Executive Officer Golfetto Sangati

Golfetto Sangati: one year in the Pavan Group Golfetto Sangati joining the Pavan Group was an opportunity to integrate well-known supplies relevant to the Pasta sector with milling plants. 2011 saw the materialisation of important negotiations for combined pasta/mill plants, especially in the Central and South American markets. These industrial realities are now marked by a considerable growth rate in order to meet the growing demand from new markets or those that are rebuilding. Hence contracts with customers in Haiti, Peru and Mexico; but all Central and South America is one of the main markets of Golfetto Sangati, with a demand for medium-size milling plants (300-500 t./day) and where also negotiations for grain handling and storage plants and ship loading/ unloading towers are in the advanced stage. The North American market, which has always been one of the pillars for our company, is currently picking up. If sales in 2010 were mainly concentrated on spare parts, this year we have installed individual machines to complement existing systems, and started negotiating complete projects

that will materialise in 2012. Europe and especially Italy are markets where we are recording a less lively situation; however, supplies generally intended for the expansion of existing plants with individual machines are not lacking. The African continent is a very dynamic market, both at a state and private level, which has allowed us to undertake important projects and contracts. Also, after major political and social changes, opportunities that had remained frozen for a long time have returned. Hence there are some interesting opportunities, as confirmed by the significant negotiations in progress. Regarding these markets, however, there still remains the critical condition linked to low margins resulting from the strong competition in prices: the commercial aggressiveness of competitors from India and China is a factor to consider, even when the level of technology offered by these manufacturers means very modest performance. Among the Asian markets, China is the absolute protagonist: the high growth rates of the milling

industry and local processing confirm the validity of the Golfetto Sangati strategy of maintaining and strengthening the production unit in China. We are among the very few European companies to have a local plant, thereby ensuring the possibility of offering effective and timely aftersales services. Another market that Golfetto Sangati is focusing on is Russia. Also in this case, joining the Pavan Group has allowed us to enjoy the support of the consolidated commercial subsidiary in Moscow, one of the most recognised by industrial market of CIS countries. In 2011 we sold and installed single machines and complete mills, and started a number of significant commercial negotiations for complete plants. Our company is experiencing a period of strong growth, with encouraging prospects and opportunities that are clearly proving to be market rooms that we can address with a cutting-edge product and a renewed economic and financial solidity, backed by integration in the Pavan Group.

Going ahead in the technical area means reducing design and installation times and costs.

Pavan Group - Annual Report 2011

Increasing quality and reducing production costs through automation and electronics Going ahead in the technical area means reducing design and installation times and costs, in order to add more value to our product. During the course of 2011 we finished the ambitious project of including 3D design, completing the technical training for personnel and installation of the necessary software technology. The use of 3D design has resulted in improvements in several directions: greater design detail, flexibility and efficiency in the use of models and features, and completeness in the information for installation and commissioning of the plant. Designing with more detailed and clearer assemblies can show in advance exactly what the real plant will look like. This means a significant increase in terms of functionality, ergonomics and safety of the plant.

Sandro Rasera Technical Director Pavan Group

The use of a direct approach to design enables faster design cycles and increases flexibility in the event of unforeseen and even radical changes. It is necessary to be able to make design changes in a quick and easy way in an advanced stage, without sacrificing the existing design aims,

and quickly identify features and series in imported models, facilitating the changes, as well as being ready and quick in the design: making direct changes, maintaining the intelligent data of existing models and applying intelligence to ”dumb” models. Downstream this ensures more accurate and complete information for those who have to install the plant, thereby increasing the quality of the service for the customer. A further step ahead in terms of rationality and efficiency has been guaranteed by the innovations regarding information technology applied to production. The adoption of new monitoring and management systems by means of software ensures that, without requiring manual intervention, the line personnel of our customers can have all the information necessary for their activities and export data in Office environment, thus making it easy to use, even at management level. In particular, for industrial concerns characterised by many different products and frequent size changes it is necessary to be able to use the same machines, monitoring

production and intervening on the lines in real-time, preventing any reduction in efficiency and anticipating sudden stops. Also, in the configuration of each new production batch, the operator is guided in defining the operating parameters, and receives a signal from the system itself in case of choices different from those that are standardised. In fact, the platform used can memorise all the alarms gathered over time and, correlating them with the events recorded, allows the identification of optimum parameterisation. The constant integrated analysis of all significant values allows energy consumption to be minimised. In the production of pasta, for example, the drying cycle involves considerable absorption of electrical energy. Optimisation of the ventilation cycle, made possible by careful designing of the air flows and by integration of the control in the actual supervision system, enables the elimination of any waste and ensures the best quality level of the finished product.

The Growth Project outlines the activities that the company has identified in order to improve the procedure for selection and placement of Human Resources with high potential, destined to be its future management structure. Cyclically the selection process will consider young new graduates or young people with diplomas, coming from technical and engineering studies (mechanical,

electro-technical/electronics, chemistry, agricultural, etc.) and who have obtained their educational qualifications with marks of at least 95/110 or 80/100. In addition to the specific skills, a careful assessment will be made of the growth potential expressed by them and any aspects of their personality that may interfere with their expected professional growth. In addition to the already proven selection activities, for the purpose there will also be a psychological-

type assessment made by qualified experts linked to the company, and appropriately documented. Once the selection and recruitment stages are completed, new employees will begin a targeted professional path that will follow some newly set out fundamental criteria. At the end of a period of 4 or 5 years, the Resources that have attained an adequate level of professional competence and managerial skill, will be given the responsibility of a function.

The company’s sole objective, for non-profit purposes, is to promote sport, training and the preparation of athletes, also from a civil and moral standpoint, as well as the management of rugby teams.

The idea behind the commitment in the cultural field is based on the conviction that an experience in this area encourages quality and characteristics that are all-important in the field of work: creativity, intellectual interest, openness to new experiences and the ability to interact with the others. In this perspective, the Pavan Group sponsors the concert activities of ”I Solisti Veneti” in the context of the ”Veneto Festival”.

In 2011, two scholarships were granted for university students and three for high school students.

Pavan Group - Annual Report 2011

Sharing knowledge FOOD TECH MASTER The 13th edition of the Pavan School, the Food Tech Master, took place from the 14th to the 18th of November 2011. An intense week of lectures devoted to the dry pasta, during which students explored every aspect of the subject, aided by speakers and experts from the academic world, and by Pavan Group process managers, who were able to involve participants in a complete training course, from the basics of rheology to production technologies, with a close look at packaging, energy efficiency, automation and food safety. The 2011 Food Tech Master had about thirty participants, including technologists, production and quality control

managers, and professionals from fifteen pasta factories in South America, Poland, Russia and India. The Pavan School has always sought to spread knowledge and learning, offering its participants a unique training experience made of theory and practical lessons that closely examine the subjects addressed. The theory training includes moments of hands-on experience, with pasta extrusion and drying at low and high temperature. The samples obtained are appraised by tasting tests and sensory panels. An important integration enabling students to physically touch the product and

apply the theoretical knowledge learned during the lectures. The ability to involve students is one of the strong points of the Food Tech Master, which seeks to be a hub enabling the establishment of relationships and the creation of a network of contacts that goes beyond the experience of the School and is useful in the future careers of each. With this objective, the website (created in 2011) dedicated to the Food Tech Master (www.foodtechmaster.com) provides information on future courses and allows the exchange of ideas and experiences within the community of students of the course.

ACADEMIC WORLD

The constant research of Pavan is supported by several relationships with Universities and the academic world. Specific projects and research activities are carried out with: • University of Udine (Department of Food Science) • University of Calabria (Department of Modelling for Engineering)
