A love for pasta and an entrepreneurial spirit have always been the distinguishing traits of the Ferrara family, these qualities are handed down generation to generation, a “trademark”, so to speak, of the Ferrara industrial dynasty.
These principles, combined with a strong will, selflessness and a tireless work ethic are the foundations on which PASTIFICIO GUIDO FERRARA SPA was built.
The company was founded in 1883 and distinguished itself for the quality of its pasta, competent management and the high technical standards of the Ferrara family.
Our patented inventions and ingenious insights are applied to our production systems and are clear for all to see, the company has been noted for having made a significant contribution to the pasta industry./p>
Down through the years, the company has changed location several times within the province of Naples due to an ever increasing demand for production; the company started off humbly in a workshop in Cimitile, moving to a factory in San Paolo Belsito, finally settling in Nola.
Pastificio Ferrara applies the highest national and international standards, which are in turn guaranteed by careful inspections carried out during the all work processes, beginning with an analysis of the raw materials, right up to kitchen tests on the pasta.
The factory is located in the Nola Industrial Estate on the outskirts of Naples, specifically in the CIS and the Interporto di Nola zone, which is directly connected to the motorway and all the main traffic arteries. The factory is situated on a 100,000 square metre site, of which 35,000 square metres account for production space, all the buildings were built using the most modern techniques available, thus ensuring hygiene and safety.
An environmental management system, based on the strict criteria of ethical and social and environmental responsibility, combined with a food quality and safety system are the basis of the company philosophy, which is also anchored in the traditions of the past, whilst embracing the future being aware that it can contribute to sustainable development and the improvement of the quality of life generally speaking.
