Cooperative

Moncada Coop. O.P. was founded in 2013 as a Producer’s Organization. It originated in the south east of Sicily, which is an area particularly devoted to the production of horticultural crops, and it supplies the National and International GDO (Big Organized Distribution). During its 50 years of business activity, the organization has evolved in many of its productive, organizational and logistical processes, and it has since consolidated itself within the Italian fruit and vegetable market.
The cooperative specializes in the production of tomatoes. It cultivates these based on innovative approaches that enhance the quality and flavor of these products. The tomatoes are cultivated using the most advanced technologies, and with the support of a qualified team of administrators and processing staff, they are created through a very precise and punctual production process.
The Company obtained several certifications as a guarantee of a controlled, healthy and high quality product. All of its products originate exclusively from Sicily and their quality complies with the HACCP GLOBALG.A.P., IFS Food Version 6 and IGP Pomodoro di Pachino standards.

The Group

The Moncada family business emerged in the 1950’s, when Salvatore Moncada started selling fruit and vegetables. The organization retains the family name to this day and continues to sell fine quality products. Mr Moncada had a true appreciation for fine quality vegetables in the Italian fruit and vegetable markets. The produce was cultivated in rustic greenhouses and grown under tarpaulin using stick canes. This part of Sicily came to be called the ‘Transformed zone’. In 1986, Moncada’s sons, Angelo, Rosario and Massimo carried on trading and transformed the family business into Salvatore Moncada Ltd. They set about distributing and promoting the Moncada brand on a much larger scale. On January 2013, Salvatore Moncada Ltd became Moncada Soc. Agr. Coop. O.P. (Agricultural Co-operative Society)

The Territory

“SICILY – an island which smiles to Africa ”. The area of Ragusa rises at the foot of the Hyblaean Mountains (Monti Iblei). The area is defined by a shoreline gifted with many beautiful coasts and colored grain-stones surrounded by baroque style architecture. It boasts centuries of interesting history and myths and has seen a number of invasions over the years.

The area is an ancestral landscape featuring many gentle geographical features and green valleys in the middle to uplands. It is the site of holm oak wood forests and many irregular plots of dry stone walls located above its slopes. This area of Sicily welcomes the wayfarer of yesterday and today; people that wish to travel along the roads and the way-paths whilst looking out for its notorious geographical features. The landscape toggles between Mediterranean scrub to wide areas of olive and carob trees, pleasant vineyards and citrus groves. Here, human hands have cultivated a complex terrain of cray and limestone inclined towards the sun. Lines of greenhouses hide and protect a variety of fruit and vegetables of vibrant and amazing colors.

The advantages of the Mediterranean weather and its warm summers and mild winters make the fruits and vegetables of this land unique in terms of flavor, authenticity and freshness. The force of the elements, balanced with human genius, creates marvelous products to bring to our table to keep us health and well.

The land of Ragusa, a rediscovery of a Sicilian taste.
