Ethical Stewardship Practices
A commitment to supporting local farmers means an investment in well-managed farms and strong stewardship practices which include but are not limited to conservation of fertile soil with non-harmful chemicals, and the maintenance of safe water resources. This also means an investment in humane and cruelty-free animal practices, which mean animal products that are free from harmful growth hormones. This responsible planning and management of resources has long-term implications for sustainable development of Canadian farm lands.
Buying Local Supports Canadian Families...
Not only is this great for the environment, but for your family, too. A shorter distance between farm to table helps to ensure the fresh, nutrient-dense properties of your food are preserved. Locally sourced produce are better for you, as well as better looking and tasting, too.

Because our ingredients are organic and locally sourced, you can be sure that everything National Pasta offers will be is hand-picked, crafted and customized. This means a consistently fresh, flavorful experience of the highest quality every time.
