As a young bride in the small village of Maddona del’Olmetto, Italy, Carla Squatrito fell in love with the art of making pasta. She was only 27 when she moved to America and brought the tastes of home with her. In 1978 she opened her own store, Carla’s Pasta, with the help of her two sons and continued to bring the authentic Italian products to the public. Carla’s has a minimalistic approach to making pasta using only the freshest, natural, and highest quality products in their recipe. Their products include pastas such as Gnocchi, Manicotti, Pasta sheets, Stuffed Shells, Ravioli, and Sacchettini. They prepare delicious sauces like pesto, alfredo, and vodka sauce, along with appetizers like breaded ravioli’s, stromboli bites, and frito misto.
When it comes to safety, Carla’s 100,000 square foot facility and green field are technologically advanced and under strict quality control. While food safety is rigorously regulated; employee safety meticulously scrutinized as well. Recently, employees were having a difficult time pushing product onto their large industrial floor scales due to the lack of traction. The maintenance department sought out anti-slip product options.
