Limonio, a Former Lime Factory
The story of Limonio started with great grandfather, Francesco, who used to sell fresh citrus fruits in Sicily. Later, Vincenzo, the son of Francesco, introduced specialized techniques to harvest citrus blossom. He also brought modern methods in the company to extract oils for many cosmetic industries, confectioneries, and pharmaceuticals. In 1980, the company stopped its production due to the collapse of the USSR but later in 1990, the Russo family re-established the family business.
