The best variety choice, from organic farming

Andriani’s legumes sustainable supply chain, 100% italian, is one of the most extensive in Italy, with the aim of helping to protect our biodiversity, air, water and soil: legumes not only diversify crops and our diet but also help enrich the soil with elements essential for the development of all kinds of plants. This allows farmers to use less synthetic fertilisers, achieving significant savings, reducing waste and improving the ecosystem and human health.

In this way, Andriani is at the forefront of promoting agricultural models that are more attentive to the management of natural resources, and therefore more sustainable. Felicia legume pasta retains all the intrinsic benefits of legumes and is rich in vegetable protein: it is also ideal for dinner, in just a few minutes bringing to the table a healthy, nutritious dish with an authentic taste. A healthy choice, loved by the whole family, children and sportsmen alike, even with just a drizzle of oil.
Felicia embraced the 'clean label' philosophy from the outset, with clear labels on the packaging and readable, transparent ingredient lists.

Andriani Benefit Corporation

Since 2020, Andriani has chosen to become a Benefit Corporation with the intention of pursuing not only profit-making objectives, but also positive impacts on society and the environment. Our commitment is divided into five different areas:

  • Valute chain and sustainable farming
  • Health and well-being
  • Community development and valorisation
  • Climate change and circular economy
  • People and corporate identity

Towards carbon Neutrality

In order to contribute to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals on clean energy and climate action set out in the UN 2030 Agenda, Andriani has chosen to embark on a technological innovation path with the aim of reaching Carbon Neutrality by 2025. Carbon neutrality is defined as the condition in which CO2 emissions are balanced by equal removals, absorptions or offsets in a given period of time.

The challenge is characterised by major commitments on several fronts and the constant monitoring of results. 
The strategy focuses on reducing energy consumption on one hand, and on increasing self-production with highly energy efficient plants and renewable sources on the other. 

The projects completed so far have included:

Smart building

an energy-efficient building inaugurated in 2020, designed according to the principles of the Itaca Protocol and an icon of sustainable construction.

Photovoltaic system

in operation since 2021, which, together with the trigenerator, contributes to the total electricity requirements of the production plant.

Trigeneration plant

a high-efficiency trigeneration plant (in operation since 2020) that provides for the simultaneous production of electrical, thermal and cooling energy.

Cultivation of Spirulina algae

since 2021, reusing water from the pasta production cycle and further CO2 sequestration from the photosynthetic activity of the microalgae.
