«It all began with the idea of making gluten free pasta», Felice Andriani says. He is the founder of Andriani, a pasta processing plant dedicated entirely to making gluten free pasta.
Significant innovation possibilities
The plant is based in Gravina, Puglia in Italy – an area with a long tradition of growing grains and making bread and pasta. At the time Mr. Andriani saw a great opportunity in gluten free pasta.
Over the last 10 years Mr. Andriani and his two sons have built the business to now produce 80 million units of short and long pasta a year, with 5 production lines and using more than 40 different recipes.
They export worldwide to the United States, Canada, the Uk, France, Spain, Italy and Scandinavia – and expect to expand soon to markets such as Japan and Russia.
