Producing high-quality pasta begins with growing top-quality durum wheat, which has consistently high protein content. In Italy, we are helping growers produce more, top-quality durum wheat through the value chain project “Grano Armando”, guaranteeing them a higher, more reliable income.
More than 1,000 growers benefit from a sustainable cultivation protocol, quality seeds and farmer support. The growers also join a network that connects them with pasta manufacturers in Italy.
Yields are 15% higher than average, and the protein content of the wheat is 14%, as opposed to the Italian average of 12%.
