Di Bartolo was established in 1951 in Sicily and soon made a name for itself for the outstanding quality of its raw materials and its innovative approach to creating semi-finished food products. With more than 70 years of experience, we are the ideal partner for companies seeking high-quality, customised ingredients capable of meeting a wide range of market demands.
One of its distinguishing skills is the ability to create ingredient solutions for the beverage sector by producing natural juices made from Sicilian citrus fruits, such as orange, lemon and mandarin, which capture the scents and flavours of this island, which is one of a kind in the world.
The natural juices that the company produces are drinks obtained by pressing or extracting juice from fruit without adding any sugar, preservatives or other additives. Widely regarded as a healthy source of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, they support a balanced diet and overall well-being. They are also an excellent option for vegetarians or vegans, since they are entirely fruit-based without added animal-derived ingredients.
Di Bartolo offers an extensive range of ingredients and versatile flavours that meet all needs. Var-ious types of juices are offered in order to appeal to consumer tastes and cater for the specific needs of each preparation. For instance, clear juices are depulped and depectinised, which makes it possible to obtain a transparent liquid. Cloudy juices, instead, contain the pulp of the fruit, which gives them a thicker texture and provides a fuller flavour. To conclude, frozen juices are es-pecially known for preserving the aromatic qualities of citrus fruits to the fullest.
Regardless of the processing technique, our juices are suited to a large variety of preparations, such as soft drinks, energy drinks, smoothies, shakes or beverages, so that each drink has a unique and distinctive taste.
An additional feather in the cap is the tailor-made service offered to companies in the food indus-try: in fact, Di Bartolo supports them at every stage of product development. Thanks to its lab equipped with state-of-the-art, modern analytical technology, the company supports its R&D team by creating tailor-made ingredient solutions for customers.
