More than 170 years ago in 1846, Antonio Rummo rode his faithful steed over the San Cosimo Bridge in search of the best wheat to bring back to his mill in the town of Benevento, Campania. That passion was passed down from generation to generation and to this day the Rummo family honours the traditions founded by Antonio, using only the finest ingredients when manufacturing pasta.
The key to producing high-quality pasta is taking your time, known as the “Lenta Lavorazione” process that Rummo has continually perfected over 170 years. The Lenta Lavorazione is translated to “slow processing”. Rummo uses this process for every batch of pasta to make consistently high-quality pasta.
Rummo has high protein content which means that the dough can resist the kneading process allowing for stronger gluten bonds, this guarantees Rummo will hold its shape and texture.
Rummo is the only pasta certified for cooking preformation by the Federazione Italiana Cuochi (Federation of Italian Chefs).
Every batch of Rummo pasta is tested for its cooking performance; this is done by using a pressure sensor that replicates the human bite to test the pasta’s resistance. Only the pasta that stands up to the strict standards will be branded Rummo and have the Lenta Lavorazione stamp applied. Even after overcooking, Rummo holds its shape when compared to other pastas on the market.
That’s not where the attention to detail stops though. Through the traditional method of bronze die extrusion using patented dies made especially for the Lenta Lavorazione process, Rummo pasta is given a rougher surface that any sauce will stick to.
With both retail and larger catering sizes available in a wide variety of different shapes, Rummo can be used in dishes that range from traditional, to bakes and soups, as well as salads that are perfect for summer menus.
In 2015, Rummo launched a gluten-free pasta range, that was awarded best innovation in the category by Italy’s Premio food in 2016. The award-winning gluten-free range is just one example of Rummo’s game-changing offering.
