Producer Spotlight: Bellingham Pasta Company

Bellingham Pasta Company pasta ready to be hand packaged.

It is difficult to think of a more universally loved food than pasta. Pasta has previously been ranked the world’s most loved food, and—if you didn’t already notice—pasta is having a bit of a moment during the pandemic (case in point: that viral baked feta pasta recipe.)

With so many folks turning to pasta for its qualities as a quintessential and easy-to-prepare comfort food, more folks are also realizing the superior quality of refrigerated fresh pasta over dry pasta.

In Bellingham, we are so lucky to have a fantastic producer of delectable fresh pasta in our own backyard: Bellingham Pasta Company. At Acme, we couldn’t be prouder to partner with Bellingham Pasta Company to feature high-quality fresh pasta in many of our meals.

Like Acme, Bellingham Pasta Company recognizes the value in local food—not only to provide pasta fans with the freshest product but also to minimize the carbon footprint of production and transportation, and to keep money in your local economy. We also give them a sustainability shout-out for using compostable packaging for their pasta.
