After spinning off Hershey's pasta business to the newly formed company, New World Pasta acquired most of Borden's pasta business in 2001. New World Pasta declared bankruptcy in 2004,[4][5] and in 2006, the company was acquired by Ebro Puleva S.A., a food company based in Spain.[6] As part of Ebro Puleva, New World Pasta acquired Strom Products in 2012, including the No Yolks and Wacky Mac brands.
