Where was Ortoledda born?

Ortoledda was born in 1966 in Caltagirone, a Sicilian village famous for its ceramics. The protagonists of the birth of this food company are Caterina, Giuseppe and their son Michele Ledda who, passionate about gastronomy and Sicilian cuisine, with perseverance, dedication and pride bring the authenticity of Sicily to the table of many people, even overseas. In fact, Ortoledda promotes increasingly representative international sector events.

What is the main ingredient of Ortoledda?

The first of the ingredients that distinguishes the Ortoledda company is the quality of the raw materials, selected and processed without the use of colorants and preservatives.

In addition to the quality of the Sicilian foods used, Ortoledda produces preserves following strictly controlled procedures. Whether they are packaged in glass jars, tubs, bags or buckets, Ortoledda pickles in fact keep the flavor of the vegetables used unchanged. The use of labels with striking colors also contributes to underlining the Sicilian origin and the notable value of the products.

Where do the products used in preserves come from?

All the products, of the highest quality, are grown in Sicily, a land full of unique aromas, fruits and flavours, by local producers and in a completely natural way.

An example are artichokes in oil from Sicilian crops, located between Caltagirone and Niscemi, where it is possible to find very sunny soil. Only the best carefully selected artichokes, processed 24 hours after their harvest, without the use of brine, and subsequently packaged in jars with pure sunflower seed oil and also Sicilian aromas such as garlic, mint and a pinch of chilli pepper.

Other examples are the red tomatoes from Ispica, the long aubergines from Ragusa, the tender lampascioni from Grammichele, the ''Nocellara'' olives from Etna, all products harvested at the right ripening period and processed with great meticulousness.

On our TerraMadre.it store you can buy Ortoledda products, from cherry tomatoes to olives, from aubergines to peppers, from pâtés to pestos, all made with unique quality ingredients, which express the flavour, tradition and culture of our land.

The Ortoledda products in oil, which can be purchased on our website, are tailor-made and also used in the catering sector by professionals who want to offer their customers superior experiences of taste and authenticity.
