Talking about pasta in Italy means retracing the history of this country, its evolution in terms of gastronomy and food and also talking about a food that unites us all in its various shapes. If the Roman philosopher Cicero praised làgana, i.e. the Latin term the name “lasagna” comes from, it is during the Middle Ages that different types of pasta that we can still enjoy today began to be created. Since then, pasta has spread all over the world, making the Italian industry a global market leader.
The organic market
Over the last decade, the sale of organic products has recorded a constant and significant increase,
reaching +133% (source Nomisma); obviously, organic pasta also falls within this market segment. In order to ensure proper regulation, in 2018 the European Union, with the approval of the European Parliament, issued Regulation (EU) no. 848/2018, which was meant to redefine the entire framework of organic production and labelling of organic products.

Due to delays caused by the Covid-19 emergency, not all delegated acts and annexes were produced: for this reason, on 13 November 2020, Regulation (EU) no. 1693/2020 of the European Parliament was issued, postponing the application of the new Regulation (EU) no 848/2018 for one year.
