CATELLI® first started making macaroni and vermicelli by hand in 1867 when an immigrant from Vedano, Italy — Carlo Onorato Catelli — established Canada’s first pasta plant on Saint-Paul Street in Old Montreal.
Since then, the small operation has grown to include a full range of CATELLI® pasta shapes and varieties suited to both traditional and contemporary recipes.
Today the tradition continues with CATELLI® producing some of the world’s best and most innovative pastas.
