The origin of wheat for Barilla pasta

Using quality raw materials for the production of pasta for Barilla is not only a production requirement. It is rather a corporate and ethical responsibility that the Barilla family has felt as its own for 140 years: it is rooted in the land, in the wheat fields and in the culture based on the respect for land, people and the environment.
