Show You Care, Save A Bear
We are really proud to be partnering with the visionary conservationists at The European Nature Trust and Salviamo l’Orso, in joining their mission to save the Marsican brown bear – the world’s most endangered bear.
BETTER FOR YOU
We use only the finest semolina sourced from the wheat fields around Altamura in Puglia, known for producing the highest quality durum wheat in the world. For years we have been working exclusively with our family miller whose expertise dates back to 1877.
MEET LUIGI UGO
When Luigi Ugo left his home in Tortona, at the age of 14, for the bright lights of London in 1921, we’re sure he didn’t expect to become a household name nearly 100 years later.
Working in a grocery store, with a wage of only flour, eggs, board and lodgings, it wasn’t long before Luigi started making fresh pasta and selling it to London’s hotels and restaurants, giving Londoner’s their first taste of fresh pasta.
Demand for Luigi's fresh pasta soon grew, and in 1929, he opened his first Delicatessen on Gerrard St, Soho. Over the next 20 years, Luigi continued to make pasta in his shop window, much to the crowd’s delight!
Once World War II ended, Luigi moved to larger premises in Holloway, London, and started making pasta for an increasing demand outside of London. From there, Luigi and his son, Leo, grew Ugo Foods and brought many firsts to the UK, including fresh pasta, Gnocchi, Organic & Wholewheat and wheat-free pasta.
Now a 4th generation company, Ugo foods, based in Hertfordshire, continues to pride itself on being innovators and never compromising on quality. Pasta runs through the Ugo family veins and Dell’Ugo is a brand Luigi himself would be proud of.
