Greetings from the Barilla Test Kitchen: Introducing Barilla® Frozen!

Today we’re thrilled to announce the launch of the latest innovation from Barilla, pre-cooked and frozen pasta from Barilla. We have been seeing the need for reduced-labor and cook-anywhere products growing in foodservice, including during our work with dark kitchen pilot projects and hearing from our valued customers. Now, thanks to our high-quality semolina and rigorous testing of the IQF production process, Barilla Frozen can flex between to-order service or be held for 30 minutes or longer – ideal for delivery or catering settings. It’s line-ready and made to perform in all sorts of foodservice environments and cooking platforms – including yours!

With 85% of consumers loving or liking pasta[1], it’s an easy order for today’s guests, and an easy solution for back-of-house teams of all skill levels. Barilla® Frozen delivers the same quality and consistency chefs expect from the #1 pasta brand in Italy and the US, but with the resource- and labor-saving benefits of pre-cooked pasta.
