The makers of DOLMIO® are passionate about food. Since our beginnings in 1986, we have understood that meals shared with family and friends are cherished moments. As such, only the finest quality ingredients are selected for our pasta sauces to provide the best taste and quality.

In the early 1980s, people became more health conscious. Pasta, which is low in fat and a good source of carbohydrate, really took off and the pasta sauce market was dominated by canned products. In Australia, in 1985 Masterfoods test-launched Alora Spaghetti Bolognese sauce in a 500g resealable glass jar. From Australia, Alora moved to a small launch in Scotland, where it became an immediate hit. After changing its name to Dolmio, the brand began to grow in popularity in the UK, Ireland and then started rolling out globally. For the first time, spaghetti bolognese was easy to cook! With the product being sold in a jar rather than a can, it was positioned as high in quality with a focus on the naturalness of its ingredients.

Dolmio took an existing family favourite meal and made it easier and even more accessible; turning it into an experience the whole family could enjoy sharing together. As we've grown over the years and across the countries, Dolmio has always evolved at the pace of the consumer. We've understood and reflected what's going on in society, rather than set out to change it. The one thing that's never changed is the simple promise that lies at the heart of Dolmio – tasty Italian food that the whole family loves coming together to share and enjoy.


Dolmio brings millions of families in homes around the world together by giving them the perfect opportunity to enjoy their mealtimes around the table. Dolmio is the spark that brings people together. The spark that gets the conversations going and the laughter flowing.
