Puzzle 945. Modular generation of primes from a prime.

JM Bergot sent the following nice puzzle:

Example 1:

Prime= 353=300+50+3 and

2=353 mod 3; 3=353 mod 50;  53=353 mod 300 with all 2, 3, 53 being primes.

Example 2:

Prime=1307=1000+300+0+7 (If there is a 0, ignore)

5=1307 mod 7; 107= 1307 mod 300; 307=1307 mod 1000 with all 5, 107 and 307 being primes.

Q. Send your largest prime that produce primes for all the remainders according this procedure? (The fewer the 0's, the better).

 

Contributions came from Vicente Felipe Izquierdo, Pierandrea Formosa and Giovanni Resta.
