Pasta ZARA has an exclusive processing contract for durum wheat with the Tesa srl mill in Santa Maria Nuova (Ancona, in the Marche region). The agreement is part of a precise strategy of the company’s development plan: the control of the entire production line.
After Puglia and Sicily, Marche is the third largest Italian durum wheat producing region. This enterprise enables the company to have direct contact with the local producers of durum wheat (who can also draw up supply contracts), to acquire more know-how and new market opportunities. Obviously the mill in Marche can only satisfy a part of the daily requirements of the three Pasta ZARA plants.
The rest of the processed wheat comes from the most important and reliable groups of Italian flour mills.
