The company

   
 
The history and the future of Oranfrizer has deep roots in a unique territory, volcanic and generous. It grew out of Sicily, in the plains of Catania dominated by the maternal and paternal presence of Mount Etna, and its products distinguish themselves by the origins which determine their quality.
Founded in 1962 by Cavalier Giuseppe Alba, Oranfrizer is led today by his sons Nello and Alessandro. It represents in Italy a leading company in the production of citrus products, fruit and vegetables and juices.
The company prizes quality over quantity and distributes the gifts that nature has made to the most fruitful island of the Mediterranean.
