Pasta Evangelists, a company owned by the Barilla Group, recently unveiled its first pasta manufacturing facility in the UK, touted as the largest pasta factory in the country.

With an investment exceeding £13 million, the new facility is geared towards fueling the brand’s expansion throughout the UK and meeting the increasing consumer demand for high-quality restaurant-style fresh pasta dishes enjoyed at home.

Scheduled to open this month in October 2023, the 47,000-square-foot factory will be situated in North Acton, London.

As per the brand’s statement, the facility will manufacture a diverse range of pasta shapes, some of which have never been produced in the UK before. In addition to traditional fresh pasta options, the factory will craft unique varieties, such as ‘porcupine ravioli’ (crestoni), corzetti, anolini, saccottini, and more.

The Italian manufacturer Italgi will provide the factory with machinery, and the workforce is expected to consist of 60 to 70 employees. This facility will have the capacity to produce more than 50 tonnes of fresh pasta per week, along with 90 tonnes of sauces and 15 tonnes of oven-baked pasta.

Alessandro Savelli, CEO of Pasta Evangelists, said, “The launch comes after years of planning and innovation, as we aim to expand our pasta offering to thousands of consumers across the UK”.

He added, “Utilising the latest technology and machinery will help us on our mission to experiment with new flavours, high-quality seasonal ingredients and a variety of pasta shapes to expand our growing pasta portfolio”.
