If we touch any baking mould of Novacart we can understand and feel the strength of its structure. “The strong structure is not by thickening the paper, if we do so thus the baking process will last long since the heat we need will be higher to pass through the thick paper. Instead we create the good paper structure with high technology resulted from the intense research in our R&D department,” Mr. Rodolfo Anghileri explained.
