Employer Profile

We are an Italian family-owned food company. And like all Italian families, we take food very seriously. We have been doing this for more than 140 years. Today we are committed to making food that is “Good for You, Good for the Planet”. Because good food brings people together. Our origins date back to 1877, when Pietro Barilla opened a small bread and pasta shop in the center of Parma: that moment marked the beginning of a story of passion for quality, continuous pursuit of excellent recipes and ability to combine tradition and innovation. Today we are an international Group present in more than 100 countries through our brands: world leader for pasta, leader for ready-made sauces in Europe, for bakery products in Italy and for crispbreads in Scandinavia. We employ over 8,000 people and own 30 production sites in 10 countries which every year contribute to the production of over 2,000,000 tons of products. We work every day to be the most reputable Italian food company worldwide, promoting healthy and joyful food experiences, reducing our impact on the Planet and fostering open and caring dialogue in the Communities in which we operate. This is why we believe that “Good for You, Good for the Planet” is the only way for doing business for our Group. A purpose that expresses the daily commitment of Barilla People and a supply chain that shares our values and passion for quality. At Barilla we empower people to live and work responsibly and ethically, embracing our value system of integrity, trust, courage, intellectual curiosity and passion. Moreover, we acknowledge diversity as a key factor to drive our future: that is why our People are invited to bring their authentic self to work and enjoy acceptance and understanding.
