Mercato San Severino, Italy 

Coppola Foods is thrilled to announce our Farro& Emmer earned a prestigious 1-star rating at the 2021 Great Taste Awards.

The Great Taste Awards are known for their strict judging. Products are blind-tasted by over 500 culinary experts including chefs, buyers, food writers and retailers who judge solely on taste, ensuring only truly delicious and innovative products win.

Praised by the judges: "Plump grains with a lovely, springy bite that burst with flavour. Nutty and slightly earthy, this is a grain that would work beautifully in salads or as a side dish. There is a freshness to them too, which is a revelation as sometimes farro can taste dusty and this does not.

"We're delighted to receive 1-Star Great Taste Award 2021 for our Farro!" said Ernesto Coppola, CEO of Coppola Foods. "This award is corroborate our mission: making good food better and reflects our team's devotion to using the finest ingredients and creating products that elevate any dishes.

Only being found on in northern and central Italy, specifically in the foothills of the Alps and the Apennines, our Fontana Formiello Farro/ Emmer is famous for their nutty, slightly sweet flavour and a chewy texture which stays tender and distinct when cooked, deliciously “al dente”. Our farro is unique because we use a gentle hulling method that keeps the germ and bran intact, unlike the more common pearled farro. This minimally processed approach results in a longer cook time, but it's a worthwhile trade-off for the farro's superior nutritional value. While pearled farro sacrifices nutrients for faster cooking and a softer texture by removing the outer hull along with the beneficial germ and bran layers, our farro retains all its goodness. This translates to a farro packed with fiber, protein, and essential vitamins and minerals. Enjoy this delicious whole grain in hearty soups, potages, stews, or even salads for a satisfying and nutritious addition to any meal.
