The New World Pasta Company is the largest retail branded pasta manufacturer in North America in terms of sales[2] and a wholly owned subsidiary of Ebro Foods.[3] New World Pasta headquarters are in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. The company was formed in 1999 when it divested to a private equity group from The Hershey Company. After spinning off Hershey's pasta business to the newly formed company, New World Pasta acquired the four remaining brands of Borden's pasta business in July 2001 that the American Italian Pasta Company did not purchase a month earlier (Prince, Creamette, Catelli, and Lancia). 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.
