The Barilla Difference

From the very beginning, product quality was paramount to the Barilla family. They knew that it took a superior quality of semolina to make superior pasta. Legend has it that Riccardo, the son of Barilla’s founder, would dust the sleeves of his black suit with the semolina. If no specks remained after he brushed it off, the semolina was dry enough and finely ground enough to be used in Barilla® pasta.
