How to Open an Artisan Pasta Factory: All You Need to Know

Opening an artisan pasta factory where you can produce fresh pasta, dry pasta lines, organic pasta or gluten-free pasta for coeliacs, it is the equivalent of opening a business of production and sale of handmade egg and stuffed pasta of the utmost interest.


Supermarkets and hypermarkets are becoming more and more fearsome competitors of the common fresh pasta shops. The evergreen business of artisan pasta production finds its business strength in a genuine product, a specialism of pastry, ice cream, rotisseries and fresh pasta shops.

The fresh pasta business has been growing continuously lately, even thanks to a higher attention that has been drawn to healthy eating which pushes people towards a homemade-oriented choice when seeking for traditional dishes.

This is why today opening a pasta factory is a very successful business.

If you want to develop this type of business, do not forget to spoil your customers with niche products of ultimate quality, the only products that will make their mouth water and their needs met. Think about coeliacs who miss out on this “NATIONAL” delicacy due to food intolerance.
