Andriani, an Italian pasta maker, announces plans to build its first factory in North America Bakery and Cereal, Shelf-stable Food and Beverage Business

Andriani, an Italy-based gluten-free pasta manufacturer, has announced plans to invest C$33.6m ($24.9m) in setting up its first production facility in North America, which will be located in Ontario, Canada. The move is expected to create 42 jobs in the city of London, as reported by the Ontario provincial government. With a new 61,225-square-foot factory, Andriani aims to produce “gluten-free” and “GMO-free” pasta for the North American market, eliminating the need to import products from Italy. The Ontario government plans to provide C$1.5m of support to the company’s investment through its regional development program.

Michele Andriani, the pasta group’s CEO and president said, “In London, we found the premises to ground the next steps of our international development, which aims at increasing the potential of having a positive impact on people’s lives through food innovation: highly qualified and professional people, focus and investments on food innovation, sustainability and regenerative agricultural practices and overall a competitive agricultural and food business ecosystem.”

Andriani is headquartered in the Italian city of Bari and currently produces around 40,000 tons of pasta annually. The group’s wholly gluten-free pasta factory is located in Gravia, Italy, and the company makes a variety of gluten-free food, such as “high-protein” pasta, gluten-free instant noodles, cereal pasta, and pet food.

The facility is expected to support their international development, focusing on food innovation, sustainability, and regenerative agricultural practices, thereby increasing their potential to have a positive impact on people’s lives.
