Benefits of Membership

We encourage the consumption of pasta by being the center of knowledge and promoting sound public policy to the consumer, the industry and the regulatory bodies because a sustainable pasta industry is vital to healthy diets.

Since the first U.S. commercial pasta plant was founded in 1848, pasta makers have needed to collaborate on manufacturing, marketing and regulatory issues among industry players. The National Pasta Association, the U.S. trade association of pasta industry manufacturers and suppliers, meets this collaborative need.
