How to Join

NPA Membership

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.

NPA offers three categories of membership...


Dry, fresh, and frozen pasta manufacturers, and value-added manufacturers

Producers of pasta which is used as an integral part of the finished product


FY2020 manufacturer membership dues should be calculated based on the most recent annual sales data.


The following are eligible to join as Associate Members:

Allied Products Members, who process products for us in the manufacture of pasta products and those manufacturing products that complement pasta products.

Supplier and Service Members, the manufacturers of equipment or supplies for use in making pasta products or furnishing services to the industry.

General Members, for entities with an interest in the development of the pasta industry.


FY2020 associate membership dues are $3,100.


Those engaged in milling or processing semolina or flour for use in the manufacture of pasta products

FY2020 milling membership dues are $5,700.
