We produce citrus essential oils and juices for food and beverage, fragrances and cosmetics industry
We have been producing essential oils and citrus juices exclusively for the international B2B market since 1922. The unwavering passion with which Francesco Misitano di Lorenzo and Francesco Stracuzzi di Rosario first founded the Company has been handed down through successive generations of entrepreneurs of the Misitano and Stracuzzi families, who have faced the most complex challenges with a spirit of sacrifice and a strategic vision. Ever focused on global market developments and on the needs of customers, the Company has always invested in the latest technological innovations, while convinced that human capital remains its most valuable asset.
Over the years, we have become a market leader in our industry, acquiring thousands of customers around the world.
