Currently celebrating its 140th anniversary, Barilla Group, the world’s largest pasta producer, is to invest €50 million to expand its pasta sauces plant at Rubbiano in Italy. The plant was only opened in 2012 at a cost of €40 million. When the expansion is completed in 2018, the Rubbiano plant will become the largest and most efficient production plant of pasta sauces in Europe, and one of the most sustainable in the world, in line with Barilla’s corporate ethos of ‘Good for You, Good for the Planet’.

About 75% of the facility’s output is destined for exports, especially to Europe. The plant is now running at near capacity and the expansion programme will increase production up to 122,000 tons/year.

“It will be a totally integrated factory, designed in-house and fully consistent with the ‘Good for You, Good for the Planet’ business strategy.” comments Carlo Carteri, head of Pasta and Sauce Production Plants in Europe at Barilla Group. “It will feature innovative technology with robotized and digitalized equipment in line with Industry 4.0 logics, capable of further boosting the levels of product quality and safety by combining efficiency and flexibility with a sophisticated traceability system.”

In addition to its global pre-eminence in pasta, the Italian family-owned company is also a leader in pasta sauce in continental Europe, bakery products in Italy, and crisp bread in Scandinavia.
