About Taste Republic
Finally, gluten-free pasta done right
Bland food is just, well…boring.
That’s why we’re dialed in on a singular mission (some may say obsessive, and we’re ok with that) to ensure everyone can enjoy pasta that actually tastes like pasta – no matter dietary restrictions or lifestyle choices.
We believe fresh pasta can be gluten-free and still have the same amazing taste and texture as “regular” pasta. That’s the standard each of our products has to meet before ever making its way to your plate.
How it began
Taste Republic was born from a passion to help.
In 2008, wanting to solve the longstanding – and previously unsolved – challenge to make a gluten-free, fresh pasta that had the same amazing taste and texture as its regular counterpart, one of Taste Republic’s cofounders (our resident creative genius) nailed the recipe. His inspiration and motivation? A friend diagnosed with celiac disease who could no longer eat traditional pasta.
On the heels of the invention (to us, this is like Wright brothers level stuff), Taste Republic’s five founders focused on blending purpose, passion and pasta to create what’s become one of the most popular gluten-free brands.
That drive led to the creation of numerous gluten-free and vegan pastas that continue to set the standard for what’s possible.
Unleashing great taste for everyone
Today, our goal hasn’t changed. Sure, we’re adding more pastas and continuing to push the limits, but we’ll never sway from our core believe that food is more than sustenance. Food is an experience. And everyone deserves access to great pasta. No. Matter. What.
We’re looking for new ways to create equity, to ensure no one feels singled out or left out because of dietary restrictions they can’t control. It began with gluten-free pasta, and we’ll never lose sight of that. But, we’re on a mission to do more.
As a certified B Corporation, we’ve taken intentional steps improve the world. Whether that’s helping build a more sustainable and inclusive economy or finding ways to help the gluten-free community, we’re in it for the long haul.
