Founded in 1964 in Capo D'Orlando, in the province of Messina, Damiano introduced its first organic range in 1976 before going totally organic in 2000. A pioneering decision at the time, which marked a genuine turning-point for the family business and laid the foundations for its future commercial expansion, bolstered by its ongoing research and development process which remains one of its biggest strengths to this day.
With over forty different products sold across the world, a global network of partnerships with the biggest operators in the agro-food processing industry - from specialist channels to the major retail industry - and a reputation for reliability, quality, efficiency and a commitment to ethics consolidated in many years of business, Damiano is now a world leader in the organic almonds section. The production premises are located on Sicily.
Production certified IFS and BRC (with maximum score). The supply of raw materials is managed directly: the company has three large farming areas and over the years has consolidated partnerships with local farmers who have converted their farms to organic production. Over 10.000 sqm of plant is equipped with equipment for the analysis, shelling, selection, toasting, processing and packaging of the products, in modified atmospheres or vacuum packed: thanks to a flexible packaging system it is possible to produce packaging of extremely variable weight (from 100g, to a ton). A laser sorting machine, combined with manual visual controls, ensures the absence of foreign bodies, with a guaranteed percentage absence of foreign bodies equal to 99.999%.
Every production line is monitored and traced in every process phase: mechanical visual controls, laser controls, controls using metal detectors, mechanical weight controls, manual visual controls: Damiano products are the quality choice for business partners and a guarantee of authenticity and safety for consumers.
Love for the environment and respect for the rhythms of nature, the sustainability and transparency of the business, honesty towards consumers, an efficient and attentive service: values that we have adopted in producing certified organic foods that satisfy stringent quality controls and which are marketed at fair prices. The company has adopted an integrated management system to guarantee the traceability of every phase of the process.
