Pastificio Carleschi


We are Pastificio Carleschi (pronounced Past-if-each-yo Car-less-key).  An artisan producer of organic pasta made using traditional Italian methods and British stoneground flour from heritage grain varieties – blending the best of British and Italian heritage. 

The pasta we produce is artisan, bronze-extruded, slow dried for up to 40 hours at a low temperature and made from organic British heritage grains (Spelt, Emmer and Einkorn). Using these particular methods allow us to keep all the nutritional value, taste and fragrance of the ingredients intact as well as ensuring the pasta has great texture & tenure of cooking.

It is worth mentioning that we were the first British, Artisan dry pasta producer in the UK and 5 of our pasta products won the Great Taste Awards in 2020.

Sustainability is at the heart of every decision made at Pastificio Carleschi. We chooses to work with sustainability focused farmers and millers in the UK who are actively looking to enhance the health of the soil and environment whilst producing their heritage grains. These grains were specifically chosen because not only do they grow well in a low input organic system, but because of their height and root density they are perfectly designed to strive in a regenerative farming system. On top of this, they are rich in fibre and boost a variety of micronutrients not found in modern wheat, so you can imagine why using and creating a demand for these types of grains are beneficial now and crucial for our future.

More benefits to sourcing locally include guaranteed freshness, total traceability and low food miles. We are certified organic by the Soil Association so all grains and milled products are grown without chemical herbicides, pesticides, fungicides and chemicals. Simply put, it’s wheat as nature intended. This method maintains the quality of the soil, fosters biodiversity, reduces pollution from nitrogen run-off, uses less energy and supports both human and animal welfare. Other sustainable strategies we implement include how our London based factory runs completely on 100% green energy and have 100% plastic free packaging.
