Pasta Evangelists – New Manufacturing Facility
Clegg Food Projects completes construction of the UK’s largest fresh pasta facility with state-of-the-art installations for booming fresh pasta brand.
Overview of the Pasta Evangelists project
Clegg Food Projects was appointed by Pasta Evangelists – a booming direct-to-consumer brand – as the principal contractor and was responsible for designing and building the UK’s largest fresh pasta manufacturing facility.
Charged with overseeing the conversion of the building, the space underwent a huge transformation – changing use from a retail operator’s head office and warehouse, into a high-care fresh pasta and sauce facility.
Located in west London, the building was completely reconfigured, with the Clegg Food Projects team repurposing the internal space to create a high-end commercial food processing, packaging, and storage facility with distribution space that will allow the brand to deliver a 360 service.
We also oversaw the installation of state-of-the-art equipment, supporting Pasta Evangelists’ mission to experiment with new flavours, high-quality seasonal ingredients, and a variety of pasta shapes to expand its growing pasta portfolio.
The project was commissioned following a period of rapid innovation and growth for Pasta Evangelists, which was famously turned down by Dragon’s Den in 2018. Demand for its products continues to rise – especially as it expands into new channels following its sale to Barilla in 2021 – having delivered more than one million portions of pasta in 2022.
Work initially began on-site in early 2022 and was completed in the autumn of 2023, with a launch event to celebrate the landmark opening.
“Clegg acted as our main contractor during the build of the Pasta Evangelists Pastificio. They provided excellent support and guided us through the build process. We worked together as a team to overcome challenges and they kept us updated throughout the process.”Bhupendra Pindoriya, COO at Pasta Evangelists
