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. This product is Organic and is Vegan.
