Barilla Pasta

Founded in 1877, the Barilla Group is affectionately regarded as ‘the Italian Food Company’. It’s a reputation that has lead the company to grow from its humble beginnings into one of the most well-known and trusted food companies in the world, with annual exports of over 2.5 million tonnes, manufactured at 53 production sites, to 125 countries throughout the world, including New Zealand.

Barilla is now renowned for its pasta all over the planet. And over the last few decades, Kiwis have started a love affair with pasta in the same way that ordinary Italians grew to appreciate this everyday staple.

Barilla Pasta consistently ranks number one in taste, texture and appearance. It’s a reputation that is not only founded on precise manufacturing processes, but in the finest variety of durum semolina wheat used to blend into the original family recipe. It’s about creating perfect pasta – the perfect companion for a sauce bursting with herbs, spices, meats, cheeses or vegetables.

William Aitken imports a variety of shapes from Barilla’s collection of ‘blue box’ pasta, providing the right foundation for every dining occasion.

We also distribute Barilla’s Integrale range of wholewheat pasta, made from the best quality wholegrain wheat. Integrale is rich in fibre, making it an extra-healthy choice, while its golden colour, delicious flavour and al dente texture will please the most discerning pasta-lover’s palate.

Barilla’s Tagliatelle and Pappardelle egg pasta ribbons from the La Collezione range represent the best of Italy’s regional specialties and traditions, providing an authentic Italian experience on a plate.

For those adhering to a gluten-free diet, we are proud to announce the launch of Barilla’s Gluten-Free pasta range, produced in Italy in a dedicated gluten-free facility. Extensive research went into the development of the range to ensure that it offers the taste, texture and cooking performance of a regular pasta. Barilla Gluten-Free is available in New Zealand supermarkets from March 2016.
