San Remo has
epitomised the culture and tradition of pasta making since its inception in
1936, when it was founded by Luigi Crotti. Today, it remains a privately owned
100% Australian company.
its earliest days the company grew rapidly and was the first manufacturer to
support and foster supermarket distribution as this new shopping phenomenon
became established and grew.
in Australia, San Remo has offices and distribution centres in all main capital
cities throughout Australia and New Zealand, and exports to 35 countries
throughout the world. San Remo’s manufacturing site in Adelaide combines the
traditional Italian pasta making “know how” with the most modern technology.
San Remo’s Durum wheat mill is one of the largest and most sophisticated in the
Australian/South-East Asian region, and was specially designed for the
processing of Durum wheat.
Remo contracts growers to grow its top quality Durum wheat, thus guaranteeing
control over the quality and specifications of the wheat. This results in pasta
of the highest quality, and ensures high standards of integrity.
San Remo has a wide range of pasta products and sauces and also offers a range
of “La Pasta” pasta and sauce side dishes.
