The Italpasta Artisan line is inspired by an age-old Italian way of making high-quality pasta, combined with Canadian craftsmanship and 100 per cent Canadian wheat. The six, unique pasta cuts are an ode to the simple things done right, resulting in a rough, surface texture for sauce to cling to. This nutritious pasta provides a fuller, delicious flavor with every bite. The Artisan Pasta line’s fully recyclable packaging is the first step in our Small Impact, Big Change program. Canadians have always looked through the cellophane window on Italpasta’s box packaging to see the pasta shapes inside. By making this small change and removing the window, the company takes one step closer to meeting its goal to fully transition all Italpasta packaging to more eco-friendly materials by 2030. Rest assured; what’s inside is still made in Canada with the finest 100 per cent Canadian wheat. –
