Delverde is the new “Merida Cycling Team” supplier

The Italian pasta factory from Abruzzo will accompany the Bahrain-sponsored team with its custom Foodbus

Italian pasta factory Delverde starts a new adventure in the field of sport. Delverde is in fact the new Bahrain Merida pro Cycling Team’s food supplier and food project partner. This recently formed cycling team seems destined to make the news thanks to the engagement of some excellent world famous cyclist like Vincenzo Nibali.

A CUSTOM FOODBUS – The Italian pasta group will accompany the team with its custom Foodbus, equipped with a kitchen and a hospitality area. The bus was presented on March 4th on the occasion of “Strade Bianche” race in Siena. Forthcoming engagements will be races such as “Tirreno-Adriatico”, “Milano-Sanremo”, classic competition in Holland and Belgium and some world famous stages races (Giro D’Italia, Tour de France, Vuelta).

DELVERDE QUALITY – Delverde and the professional cycling world are connected just like a healthy and high-quality diet is connected to good sport performances. The company has been producing high-quality pasta since 50 years. It’s been using only high-quality groats mixed with pure water from Verde river’s source, which flows just a few feet from the company’s plant near Maiella’s national park. The same attention given to the ingredients’ selection is given to production processes. Delverde respects the best Italian pasta-maker traditions, such as low-temperature drying and bronze-drawing.

FUEL FOR ATHLETES – We are proud to back up Merida Pro Cycling Team with our brand, therefore supporting so many champions such as Vincenzo Nibali, the more entitled among Italian competing cyclists – says Delverde Ceo Luca Ruffiniand we are convinced that Delverde pasta, more than any other, can be the best fuel for cycling athletes. That’s because of our high-quality production standards and continued research, which led us to specialise in the healthy food segment. Especially with our whole wheat and Wellness lines. The latter is made with a special mix of durum wheat flour, chickpeas flour and lineseeds.
