We are an Italian family in love with good food
Our journey starts in Parma in 1877, as a small bread and pasta shop. Today, 145 years later, our products can be found in more than 100 countries and have become icons in the food industry. Still we are family-owned, not listed on any stock exchange.
Our present is inspired by our past: to fully understand who we are today, get a taste of our history. Discover how our family's first batch of pasta in Parma helped Barilla become a pillar in the international food industry.
