Pasta Berruto

Pasta Berruto

OUR HISTORY

  • 1881

    The beginning of our pasta-making adventure dates back to two centuries ago, years in which 3 small artisan pasta factories were already active. The Italpasta company will be born from the merger of these realities.

  • 1922

    The Berruto family becomes the owner of a mill in Chieri where the wheat is ground for the production of flour and semolina, the roots of a family tradition that will be inextricably linked to pasta.
  • 1930

    Renato Arrighi founds the pasta factory of the same name in Carmagnola, launching the brand and starting to successfully distribute the product to the nascent large-scale retail trade. The path of this company soon led it, starting from the 70s, to turn primarily to the foreign market, so much so that in the 90s Arrighi was one of the leading exporters of pasta on the difficult market in the United States.
  • 1959

    The Berruto family expands the business activity by bringing together the experience and tradition gained by the three original pasta factories under a single brand; in fact, from their merger, the Italpasta company was born in La Loggia (TO), which started the production of different types of dry pasta.
  • 1986

    The Berruto family acquires the majority stake of Arrighi, revealing the firm will to unify the pasta-making traditions of the Piedmont area in which his entrepreneurial adventure is taking shape under a single management. The strength of this union lays the foundations for further business growth that will materialize in the years to come.
  • 2004

    The circle between the various protagonists of the historical journey closes, Pasta Berruto brings together the two main brands Arrighi and Italpasta, thus capitalizing on the production of pasta of all types and sizes over a century of experience and tradition.
    Having retained its vocation for exporting to markets around the world, the internationality and authority of the company was strengthened in 2007 with the entry into the shareholding of Webcor Group, an important multinational holding.
  • In 2014, an ambitious business expansion plan was launched, which passed in a very short time from the design study to the operational phase.
    Areas adjacent to the current plant have been acquired, for a total area almost doubled, on which the construction of new buildings is planned to support the company's production expansion.
    It is in fact the installation of new lines and the consequent necessary implementation of offices and spaces for the adequate storage of goods.
  • Today

    This will also lead to an expansion of staff and a search for highly qualified professionals, with the specific intent of further improving the already high quality standards of the product.
  • What a quality pasta looks like

    A uniform, amber yellow color without shading.

    A smooth surface after cooking and a sensation on the palate of pleasant resistance to chewing.

    A pleasant aroma that blends well with different condiments.

  • Which controls are carried out

    The production process is subjected in all its phases to strict controls, starting with the raw materials that are analyzed in our laboratory before acceptance.

    Controls continue throughout the processing up to packaging, storage and shipment of the pasta, phases in which an advanced traceability system is always active.

  • For the environment

    The industrial process for the production of dry pasta is extremely simple, requiring the use of only two basic raw materials, semolina and water.

    This allows us, with some precautions, to have a very low impact on the environment; in fact, the only atmospheric emissions produced are the water vapor generated by the drying process, while the company's discharges consist of clean water used for the cooling process of the pasta itself.

    We have equipped our factory with a photovoltaic system to integrate energy needs with an entirely renewable and non-polluting source.

  • Certifications

    The Pasta Berruto quality system is constantly updated in accordance with ISO 9001: 2000 and the international standards GSFS (Global Standard for Full Safety) and IFS (International Food Standard), we also have the certificates for the production of organic, Halal, Kosher pasta. .

    To achieve these objectives, we purchase raw materials exclusively from the main Italian mills, we work them using the most modern technologies and we are very attentive to the care of every aspect that can improve the quality of the pasta.
