Our History

At DOLMIO®, we are passionate about food. Since our beginnings in 1986, we’ve
known the importance of meals shared with family and friends, and that they’re
moments to be cherished. Because of this, we select only the finest quality
ingredients for all our products to provide the best taste and quality.

We’ve come a long way since the early 1980’s when Pasta, which is low in fat
and a good source of carbohydrate, really took off in the UK. 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!

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,
       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.
