The mission is to sell and manufacture a selection of premium products based on traditional Sicilian cuisine and produced according with sustainable farming practices. They represent the complex history of Sicily and the peoples that have lived there over the centuries. The Siccagno tomato is the prince of our recipes. The arid soil of inland Sicily, between Villalba and the Bilìci Valley, enriches our tomato with antioxidants (lycopene) and vitamins A and C. We chose to grow it because, rich in pulp and poor in water as it is, it makes our sauces tasty and rich, sweet and genuine. Our tomato sauces are good and genuine because plant is raised 8-10 hours before processing. It’s fresh and genuine, because the plant raise in a natural way, well-ventilated and kissed by the sun. No thickeners or chemical additives. Long-life is guaranteed by a natural pasteurization. Our tomato sauces are gluten free, and we do not add pepper, so they’re great for children.
