Pasta 'sealed-in freshness'

23 September 2010

Meet La Tua Pasta, a family run business which began making and delivering authentic, fresh pasta four years ago, and which now employs 25 people in its pastificio in west London

The company which has won a number of prestigious awards, was started and is run by Caroline and Francesco Boggian.

La Tua Pasta is a family run business which began making and delivering authentic, fresh pasta 4 years ago. It now employs 25 people in their pastificio in west London. The company which has won a number of prestigious awards, was started and is run by Caroline and Francesco Boggian.

Typically ‘fresh pasta’ refers to the product available in the supermarket chill cabinet which has been pasteurised and is intended to keep for a couple of weeks. However, the La Tua Pasta product is genuine fresh, hand-cut and tender pasta typical of the north of Italy.

The taste is distinctive and comes in a variety of flavours and fillings including Pumpkin Ravioli, Tortelloni filled with Spinach & Ricotta or Slow Cooked Meat and Beetroot flavoured Gnocchi.
All the pasta and Gnocchi is made using carefully selected Italian ingredients and working to traditional Italian recipes.

La Tua Pasta serves many different customers from prestigious restaurants to some of the finest delicatessens as well as direct to consumers on local London markets. Their customers include Selfridges, Partridges in Sloane Square and Wholefoods in High Street Kensington.

An important part of the process is the packing. When the directors at La Tua Pasta were looking for food trays that would seal in the flavour and keep the ingredients as fresh as possible, they selected Nutri Pack.

Their wide range of hermetically sealable trays is available in a range of colours and sizes and as they are delivered direct from the manufacturer, they are available in small or large quantities from their centrally located warehouse in Nuneaton.

Nutri Pack also supplied the tray sealing equipment. As the trend for more authentic, wholesome food continues to grow, the future looks bright for La Tua Pasta and Nutri Pack.

The design brief for this product was to bring ‘bag in box’ wine into the 21st century. In order to do so, it was decided that wine in a box had to become ‘fashionable’. With the knowledge that 8 out of every 10 bottles of wine bought to drink at home are bought by women plus the knowledge that handbags are at the top of a woman’s most wanted list, the Vernissage Wine Handbag was, without doubt, the most obvious fashion choice.Full Story...
