Great pasta in bulk

Roger Mastrude | Sep 30, 200407:57 PM

I was sad to hear from my friends at Merlino & Sons in Oakland that their dried pasta factory had closed after 60 years in business. They made good pasta from 100% semolina, and sold it in bulk to restaurants and some retailers. They made 30 shapes.

Anyway, where can I get really good quality pasta in bulk now? I like a choice of shapes--that's one of the fun things about pasta, assuming you're just a big kid like me? I don't want to pay premium prices and I don't think great pasta has to come from Italy.
