Paccheri is a type of pasta in the shape of a very large tube. The name comes from Neapolitan paccharia, "Slaps" with a depreciative -ero to indicate something common.
With the heritage of his father’s experiences in the durum wheat cultivation and milling, Benedetto Cavalieri inaugurated, in 1918, the Mill and Pasta Factory Benedetto Cavalieri planned with the clear intent to produce First Choice Pasta with his ‘fine and selected’ durum wheat from the sunny hills of Apulia.
From that day on the motto has been:
“First Choice Pasta with Name and Surname”
Since 2005, Pastificio Benedetto Cavalieri has been appointed Learning Centre of Slow Food University of Gastronomic Sciences of Pollenzo (Piemonte).
