From small artisan workshop to global leader

We started as a small artisan workshop, and have now become a leader in the Horeca and Retail sector. Our range of brands and recipes is wide and diversified: from premium products for haute cuisine, to sauces in pellets and quick-cook pasta for collective catering, retailers and private labels, right up to ready meals for fast catering and bars.

Fresh pasta, following true Italian tradition

We produce deep-frozen fresh pasta on a large scale while remaining faithful to the artisan experience of handmade fresh pasta. This is why we have created unique machines, designed to faithfully replicate the work of human hands. In our facilities, the ingredients are processed internally and the systems are manned by experts in the artisanal preparation of the product.

Here, tradition and innovation coexist

The origin of our success is in having transferred the skilled actions of pasta-makers into highly technological production plants. Thanks to our collaboration with chefs, biologists and production technicians, we guarantee constant safety and quality in all our production lines.

Quality without borders

We are present in over 60 countries, with two sales offices in France and the USA, and area managers operating in Germany and the UK. 34 production lines are active in our Lavezzola plant, and in our automated warehouse set at -20 °C we store thousands of product.

Our commitment

Our success also comes from the wellbeing of our people and the cultural and gastronomic riches of the region where we have managed to realize our entrepreneurial dream. This is why we protect the environment where our plants are located, dedicate ourselves to the education of all our stakeholders and the promotion of charitable initiatives on a local, national and international level.

A company with great values

Our company was founded on the understanding of tradition and love for Emilia-Romagna, a land of great culinary culture. For us, doing business means opening up to the world and welcoming the new, without ever forgetting our values and the rules for artisanal fresh handmade pasta.

Laboratorio Artigianale Tortellini is founded: a small workshop where Romana Tamburini produced and sold retail fresh handmade pasta. A few years later, Edoardo Bacchini patented the first industrial Garganelli-making machine.

In 1990, Laboratorio Tortellini SRL becomes an industrial facility, with a 1,000 sq. m. production area.
