We taste-test all of our ingredients before we start cooking with them, so we can check their quality first-hand. We also prepare our carefully-selected vegetables ourselves, and only start with whole cheese rounds and whole pieces of meat in our cooking. That way, we know exactly what goes into our pasta - nothing pre-processed, nothing less than the best.
We only use fresh, class-A eggs from cage-free hens living here in Italy. Our suppliers ensure the hens are given proper food, free from artificial colouring - so we know they're well-nourished, healthy, and producing eggs of the best quality.
We’re always taste-testing our ingredients and our finished pasta, so we know it’s the best pasta possible by the time it reaches our customers.
The paper in our packaging has been given the international FSC™ certification for responsible forest management.
We’ve kept away from rapeseed and palm oils in the preparation of our pasta. And you won’t find any glutamate or hydrogenated fats in there, either. All the colours you see and the flavours you taste are entirely natural.
That's Mr Giovanni's golden rule, and we take it very seriously. We're a big family of artisanal pasta makers who really care about what we cook - we won't compromise on safety or quality. If we wouldn't make it for our own friends and family back in Italy, then we won't make it for you.
That's the other golden rule here at Rana. It means we don't cut corners, and don't let anything get in the way of quality - we want our pasta to be the best pasta possible.
