The juices

Citrus Juices
by Simone Gatto

Our single-strength juices are made from citrus – fruits grown by expert farmers through natural methods, ripen under the Calabrian and Sicilian sunshine, picked up with care by hand, so as kept in the best possible condition, before deliver to our premises.
Once received in our factory, citrus fruits are processed, squeezed both with traditional extractors that use reamers to get the juice (like home squeezing methods) and high yield American Extractors.
The process ends up with juice stabilisation and packaging that can vary according to the market of final destination.
