Current and future needs inspire us to drive: Personalization: self-expression and self-improvement through “my food”; Wellbeing: research for healthier, fresher, wholesome options; Convenience: quality, availability, accessibility and lack of time are key drivers of food choice.
Being the largest pasta producer is a strong responsibility: that is why we select only the best quality durum wheat in the world, cultivated in the most sustainable way, consistent with our mission “Good for You, Good for the Planet”. In 2016, we purchased 1,167,000 tons of durum wheat globally. Approximately 70% comes from local suppliers who are close to where we produce our pasta (Italy, US, Greece, Turkey and Russia).
