With passion since 1890

Good things are always the simple. This is the secret of a successful company.

Divella, since 1890, is a producer of durum wheat: a history that began when Francesco Divella made his first mill for grinding grain in Rutigliano, a small agricultural town near Bari. Over the years, the daily work of many people has paid off. They have transformed the company, now in its fourth generation, to a cornerstone of the food sector in the world.



Our mission can be summarized in few points:

- Quality control, careful selection of raw materials and modern technologies;

- Attention to consumer health and safety;

- Respect for the environment and social responsibility

Enhancing the pleasure of eating well means offering wholesome foods that fit well within a balanced product framework. This is the concept of our daily commitment for those who love the flavor of the past.

Great results are obtained with small steps: the first Divella plant, although small, was fitted with a robust French millstone, which became the symbol of the company. During the 80s and 90s, when the pasta industry was growing, Divella expanded its production structure: it is at this time that Divella company became synonymous with excellence in taste and quality.

The story goes on


After 125 years, the "Mediterranean Passion" inspired many people, giving life to the production of three modern pasta factories. Divella continues to pursue the same objectives since 1890, passing on the Apulian tradition and the principles of the Mediterranean diet throughout the world with pasta, cookies, oil and many other of our high quality products.
