In the beginning there were just ‘gnocchetti sardi’, ‘fregola’ and ‘malloreddus’.
That’s how it all began in 1990, with the production of typical types of Sardinian durum wheat semolina pasta - this was the starting point of the story of the Pastificio Artigiano Tanda & Spada.
Then came the ‘gigli tricolori’, the ‘penne’ tinged with cuttlefish ink, the ‘strozzapreti’ flavoured with salvia or enriched with tangy ‘bottarga’, the ‘caserecce’, ‘rigatoni’, ‘linguine’, spaghetti and the organic food line.
In 16 years this Company from Thiesi has come a long way – and made a whole lot of pasta ! Today, no less than 40 types are produced, a unique assortment, as to the variety of specialties. The Tanda & Spada Company also produces and packages semolina ‘malloreddus’ for the "Sapori e Dintorni" line of the Conad supermarket chain.
All our products are fully in line with current statutory regulations. We hold UNI-EN ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 certification, and comply with GMO rules: indeed all the ingredients we use are completely free of genetically modified organisms.
Work processes followed in the Thiesi factory, which covers an area of 2,500 m2, 800 of which covered, still follow well tried and tested artisan procedures, with three production lines divided by product type.
In the factory, side by side with state-of-the-art machinery and plant, the management and quality control of all phases of product preparation are still based on the human element – the skill and experience of Company partners. So what we are looking at is a true “family-run concern”, a winning policy not only at regional level, but also throughout Italy and abroad.
The Tanda & Spada trademark, well-known as a guarantee of quality, has won a place on the international market, in the USA, England, France and Belgium, finding a secure niche in the retail food specialty market abroad and in the large-scale retailing industry. Since 1999, the Company has developed a line that uses organically farmed products.
