Founded in 1970s, Alce Nero is a pioneer of organic farming in Italy. Developed by a cooperative of young farmers who were concerned on the negative effects of intensive commercial farming, it has grown to be one of the most successful organic food brands in Italy, with a growing presence in global markets.
The Alce Nero organic vision is ‘from our fields to your plate’ with as few steps in between as possible as cooperative members use traditional farming and manufacturing methods combined with advanced research.
Alce Nero products are directly from their fields, grown without pesticides or synthetic chemicals, non-polluting and with no Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) to meet global organic certification standard. Hence all Alce Nero products are certified organic proudly displaying the European Organic Certification and the Japanese Organic Certification.

Alce Nero Organic Tricolore Pastas
The Tricolore pastas come in three colours, natural, spinach-flavored green, and tomato-flavoured orange. Alce Nero pasta is bronze drawn, a traditional Italian pasta extrusion method that results in a rougher textured, more porous pasta that creates an ideal surface for sauces to cling to. Alce Nero Organic Tricolore pastas will liven up any pasta dish and are a great way to introduce fussy eaters to fibre-rich and healthy vegetables in a non-intimidating form, that will be saucily flavorful!
Alce Nero Organic Whole Wheat Spaghetti
The Alce Nero Organic Whole Wheat Spaghetti uses organic wholemeal durum wheat semolina that is made by milling the whole grain, without added ingredients. Fresh spring water from the Dolomites is used to prepare the semolina dough for a refined taste. This whole wheat pasta is high in fibre and is ideal served with Alce Nero tomato sauces.

Alce Nero Organic Pasta Recipes with A Twist

Spaghetti Pad Thai with Wholewheat Pasta
Pad Thai is often termed the national street food of Thailand. Substitute Alce Nero Organic Whole Wheat Spaghetti for similar bite and texture to the noodles, add more protein and vegetables for a substantially healthy and tasty meal.
To prepare, boil Alce Nero Organic Whole Wheat Spaghetti according to the instructions on the pack. While the past boils, heat some Alce Nero extra virgin oil in a wok, saute chopped garlic, and stir the marinated chicken and prawns. Stir in tamarind juice, brown sugar, chicken stock granules, chili padi and fish sauce. Add the cooked spaghetti, before stirring in the chives and beansprouts. Garnish and finish with a squeeze of lime. Enjoy your Thai Italian fusion!
Minestrone Pasta Sports Shapes
Minestrone is classic Italian comfort food that kids love. If you have a picky eater, you can ‘hide’ more vegetables in minestrone than in less soupy dishes. This one pot meal is great for days when you are short of time. In a pot saute onion, celery and carrot in olive oil until carrots soften. Add garlic and salt. Next add in green beans, Alce Nero pasta sauce, water and bring to a boil. Add kidney beans and the Alce Nero Organic Tricolore Sport Shapes and cook until the pasta is al dente – approximately 10 minutes. Serve warm with parmesan and basil.
