 From Field to Fork:
The Mega–Pasta Factory
The world’s largest pasta factory is located in northern Italy. Its highly automated production processes were made more efficient with the help of Porsche Consulting.
Barilla makes 25 per­ cent of its pasta in the northern Italian town of Pedrignano (Parma) and ships it to more than one hundred markets worldwide. Wheat is brought straight to the factory by freight train, where it is ground into the main ingredient
of every Italian pasta: durum wheat semolina.
   Barilla stands for quality. A worker at
the company’s own laboratory examines the durum wheat semo­ lina (large photo right). Employees constantly monitor production (right).
