Barilla, born in 1877 as a small bread and pasta shop in the centre of Parma, is today the world’s pasta leader. For four generations, Barilla was guided by passion and values that have inspired what is today’s  only way of doing business: Good for You, Good for the Planet.

Its competitive position is the result of a long-term vision based on an industrial logic, that has allowed it to grow steadily and surely in time and earned it the reputation of a company capable of managing reference supply chains: from the field to the plate, from the raw material to the point of sale. Managing these processes involves the continuous and proactive monitoring of supply chains, with strategies aimed at achieving results that focus on people well-being and on the protection of the environment.
