Italian organic pasta made by Iris Bio in Lombardy, Northern Italy. Iris Bio have been a workers' cooperative since 1978 (nearly as long as we have!). They make pasta about 10km away from the farm using bronze dies (pasta shaping tools) which help to create a texture that holds a sauce much better than conventional methods . The pasta is made using a low temperature method and is slow dried to ensure optimum nutritional quality.
Suma Wholefoods is also a workers cooperative and works to support other small businesses and farmers in their ambition to be sustainable and take care of the environment.
