Fresh, Refrigerated and Frozen Pasta Technology

For those interested in fresh, refrigerated (chilled) and frozen pasta, NCI is offering a one-day training session April 26, 2024 as a companion program to our annual Pasta Production & Technology course being offered April 23-25, 2024.

Course Details:

Dates: April 26, 2024
Location: Northern Crops Institute, Fargo, ND
Registration Fee: $400.00
Registration Deadline: April 8, 2024

Course Overview:

This course introduces participants to the fundamental and applied aspects of fresh, refrigerated (chilled) and frozen pasta production and quality through lectures and laboratory demonstrations. The course focuses primarily on the use of Durum wheat flour and semolina; however, much of the material covered in this course may be utilized in the production of pasta from other classes of wheat, as well as non-wheat ingredients. This course will be conducted in-person at the Northern Crops Institute.

It is recommended that attendees of this course complete our three-day program that is scheduled for April 23-25, 2024, or any of our previous pasta courses, in order to have a basic understanding of how pasta is made. Our three-day pasta course provides a basic understanding of Durum wheat quality, milling, equipment and the process of producing and drying pasta. Whereas this one-day program focuses on fresh/refrigerated/frozen pasta, our three-day program is focused on the production of dry pasta.


  • Learn from industry professionals about the fundamentals of fresh, refrigerated (chilled) and frozen pasta production, quality assurance, die manufacturing and maintenance.

Who Should Attend?
