Our paper packaging is made from high quality wood, the most naturally grown resource. The fibers which are used to produce the paper are sourced from FSC--certified forestry. These forests represent a continuously growing storehouse for CO2. Finally, the paper is printed with water-based colors. The result is our sustainable plastic-free packaging.
Organic Durum Wheat & Naturland Spelt Pasta
ALB-GOLD offers an assortment of seven kinds of pasta sustainably packed in paper bags: Organic Pasta made of 100% best durum wheat semolina or organic spelt from certified agriculture. For our spelt pasta we only use 100% Naturland certified grain from Germany. The nutty flavour brings variety to your pasta dishes. The Naturland label on the packaging guarantees that the highest ecological and social standards are met and controlled independently.
With a lot of love and craftsmanship the whole assortment is produced in Trochtelfingen on the Swabian Alb in Southern Germany. The main parts of the sustainable energy we use are from our own heating station and solar energy.
"That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind."
How to recycle the bag
When you have enjoyed the delicious pasta dish, you can easily recycle the bag yourself. Let your creativity run wild and include the empty paper bag in your handicraft work.
We have done fancy cachepots, sustainable gift bags and paper ghosts. How do you like our creations?

… is getting more important every day. ALB GOLD offers the first pasta packed without plastic in the German retail market.
According to the European Comission more than 10 million tons of plastic waste end up in the seas every year*. For us, this is one of the many reasons to think about alternative packaging options. With the special high-quality paper and the investment in a new packing machine, we have created the possibility to pack and present our pasta in a sustainable way. This is how we contribute to the change.
If you compare the CO2 emissions during the production of paper and foil, our paper emits about 65% less CO2**.
