Pizza Pasta & Italian Food magazine is the trade magazine of the UK’s well-established Pizza Pasta & Italian Food Association (www.papa.org.uk
). The magazine and association respectively report on, and represent, the interests of a variety of well-known businesses and brands (both chain and independent) in this growing and dynamic sector (Italian restaurants, pizza delivery and takeaway operators, as well as ready-meal manufacturers and the associated equipment and ingredient supply chain that all rely upon).
Pizza Pasta & Italian Food is the trade magazine of the UK’s Pizza Pasta & Italian Food Association (which celebrated its fortieth anniversary in 2017). Starting out as the Pizza Press in the early 1980s, the magazine soon established itself as a unique source of news and information for those in the UK’s burgeoning Italian food and restaurant trade – a distinction is has maintained to this day.
Over the years, the magazine has reported on the sector-defining rise and popularity of brands such as Pizza Hut, Domino’s and Pizza Express, alongside many cutting-edge independents who have also made their mark. More recently, it has focused on the wood fired oven trend alongside the continuing drive to bring authentic Italian products and dishes to UK palates.
