It all started in the '80s, when Salvatore Noto was 16, a determined and enterprising boy. He began to get passionate about the cultivation of an extraordinary vegetable: the onion of Giarratana. After some years of scarifies and hard work, he managed to buy a pickup truck by which he started to sell the onion of Giarratana and get it known in nearby places. Time by time the Onion of Giarratana started to become required in the market, for that in 2006 Salvatore decided to make up a start up with the aim of transforming the Onion of Giarratana in preserves. Salvatore realized the first line of preservers and passing on the same passion to their children. From there, thanks to the experience of the father and the creativity of the children, the company started to grow and spread its products throughout the country.
