- Is Just Starting -
Italy’s incredible pasta culture has made it the undisputed champion in dry pasta exports worldwide, but Italy's authentic fresh pasta - a much more delicious and higher quality product, is almost never seen outside of the country. Fresh pasta is always made locally or at home and is seldom exported due to its much shorter shelf-life, especially egg pasta.
This is where REGAL’s journey started; in 1986 a decision was made to focus on manufacturing fresh pasta as an exportable product. With authenticity at heart, as little processing as possible, and only the best quality for ingredients. It was the beginning of a journey spanning almost three decades that took a small but ambitious pasta factory in Abruzzo on a quest to create a new standard for fresh pasta
REGAL Fresh Egg Pasta is created in a revolutionary process that keeps the product fresh for 160 days without using any preservatives or additives. This incredible achievement is the result of years of work and research in the food manufacturing industry.
Fresh pasta has a notoriously short shelf-life which is commonly overcome via high-temperature pasteurization; this helps with the shelf-life, but deprives the product of all its natural qualities.
With REGAL, we engineered a way to move past compromising quality for a longer shelf-life by looking at other factors that affect the shelf-life in our product. We geared our focus on pre-production rather than post-production when it came to our product’s conservation. Researching where the problems that lead to fresh pasta’s short shelf life start, such as bacteria, water content, and temperature regulation.
REGAL is dedicated to the roots of fresh pasta, maintaining an all-natural and minimal ingredient list like no other fresh pasta manufacturer. Our exclusive process requires our ingredients to be of the best quality possible using just three ingredients: durum wheat semolina, whole fresh eggs delivered twice a week, and water. With our revolutionary way of production, the taste and texture of our final product from these three simple ingredients transports your back in time to when food was simple, delicious, and wholesome.
We maintain the same level of quality when making the filling for our filled pasta, selecting the highest grade Prosciutto di Parma, Parmigiano Reggiano DOP, and locally sourced meat and vegetables. Our dedication to every aspect of ingredient quality for our products is what makes REGAL stand out above all others. Guaranteed by never using fillers, added flavours, or colourants.
REGAL has a dream for its future, to move to Canada and produce a 100% Canadian product. We are pioneering a new sector of an industry that has lost touch with its roots, and the growing interest for our pasta has really made Canada feel like home away from home.
With the growing demand and opportunities in North America, REGAL has set in motion the plans to build a factory in Canada by 2021. We plan on delivering a product of equal if not better quality, and by only using Canadian wheat, eggs, and water; bringing quality to tables, jobs opportunities in manufacturing and agriculture, and exports to Canada’s economy.
With an increase in consumers opting for healthier eating habits and home cooking, REGAL has already caught the eye and taste buds of many Canadian shoppers looking to cook healthy Italian meals themselves. With REGAL fresh egg pasta, our aim as a brand is changing the narrative that “cooking good food is a lot of work”, and that there is now a healthy and natural option in the fresh pasta section. Let REGAL inspire your inner chef.
