Italian pasta maker invests $33.6M in London, Ont. for North American production hub

Italian pasta manufacturer Andriani is investing $33.6 million to build a production facility in London, Ont.

The 61,225-square-foot factory will produce gluten- and GMO-free pasta and create 42 jobs in the city.

“Andriani’s significant investment will spur growth throughout our province’s agri-food supply chains and help to further establish London as a hub for food production, technology and innovation,” said Premier Doug Ford. “Despite economic headwinds, companies across all sectors are choosing Ontario because of our competitive business environment, our access to markets and our world-class workforce.”

The company will open its first location at the London Innovation Park, with Ontario selected as its first North American market. It is estimated that Andriani produces 40,000 tonnes of pasta a year.

Andriani will also receive a $1.5 million grant from the Regional Development Program’s Southwestern Ontario Development Fund.

“We want to thank Ontario for this recognition and the support offered so far,” said Michele Andriani, Andriani Group president and CEO. “We share with Ontario a vision of a future driven by innovation and shared value. In London, we found the premises to ground the next steps of our international development, which aims at increasing the potential of having a positive impact on people’s lives through food innovation: highly qualified and professional people, focus and investments on food innovation, sustainability and regenerative agricultural practices and overall, a competitive agricultural and food business ecosystem.”
