Pasta supplier Barilla has launched its first-ever TV advertising campaign in the UK, ‘The recipe for togetherness, since 1877’.

The campaign airs across ITV and the supplier anticipates it reaching millions of UK consumers.

Showcasing the power that food has to bring people together, it comes as Barilla claims to be the only dry pasta brand to see value, units and volume growth in the past year and 26 weeks, according to Nielsen figures.
