Barilla Pasta found controversy within the LGBTQ+ community some years ago. Since then, the company has dedicated itself to being one of the most inclusive brands in modern times. It now prides itself on receiving a 100% rating in each of the last six years with the Human Rights Council Corporate Equality Index.

Mixner explains:

"Barilla is absolutely determined that every employee, every worker, have the best and are treated with equal dignity and integrity. The Human Rights Campaign fund here in America has given them a 100% rating and considers them one of the better companies that the organization deals with."
