New World Pasta

The New World Pasta Company, a wholly owned subsidiary of Ebro Foods,[2] is a retail branded pasta manufacturer in North America.[3] New World Pasta headquarters are in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. The company was formed in 1999 when the Hershey Company's pasta business was divested to a private equity group. After its formation, New World Pasta acquired the four remaining brands of Borden's pasta business in July 2001 that the American Italian Pasta Company had not purchased a month earlier (Prince, Creamette, Catelli, and Lancia). New World Pasta declared bankruptcy in 2004.[4][5] In 2006 it was acquired by Ebro Puleva S.A., a food company based in Spain.[6][7]

As part of Ebro Puleva, New World Pasta acquired Strom Products in 2012, including the No Yolks and Wacky Mac brands.[8]

Effective January 1, 2017, American Rice, Inc. and New World Pasta Company merged into Riviana Foods Inc.[9]
