For over 15 years, the BIA Artisan Pasta Factory has had as its main activity the production and marketing of fresh and dry pasta. All our pasta, made with 100% Sicilian durum wheat semolina, is handcrafted in the small factories of Resuttano (CL), an uncontaminated agricultural center in the Sicilian hinterland, and is obtained using the best varieties of Sicilian durum wheat grown and ground a few kilometers from the factories.
The mixing water, coming from the limpid springs of the Madonie, undergoes a microfiltration process that further purifies it without the need for chemical reagents, thus preserving all its precious properties. The semolina used, equipped with the UNI EN ISO 22005 "From Field to Table" Certification of the Supply Chain, guarantee the authenticity of the selected Sicilian grains and the identification of the place of production, as well as the transparency and control of all stages of the production process , from field to table, for a healthy, safe and genuine final product.

In 2015 the BIA pasta factory obtained the Organic Certification and started producing a line of fresh pasta from organic farming. In the same year the pasta factory also started the production of fresh pasta from ancient Sicilian grains ground with natural stone, using wholemeal flours from Tumminia, Russello, Perciasacchi and Senatore Cappelli.
The high quality of production and the increasingly favorable feedback from consumers, have prompted some groups to include Bia fresh pasta in their network, as part of national promotions on typical Sicilian products, allowing the company to reach millions of consumers with their references advertised throughout Italy. In 2017, the company invested its resources in the construction of a new plant, alongside the existing one, for the exclusive production of high quality artisan dry pasta, including organic.
