In 1875, the Diforti legacy was born in a tiny village in Caltanissetta, Sicily. That’s where Michele Diforti, our great-great-grandfather, began collecting olives from local farms.
Through experimentation and dedication, he developed preservation techniques that yielded sweet, crisp, bright green olives. At first, he sold them locally – but as his reputation grew, so did his business. Eventually, he loaded his olives into wooden barrels and sent them all over Sicily by train.
A Growing Vision
In 2005, we (Carlo, Andrea and Francesca Diforti) took over the business from our father. Our goal? To marry the hard work, ingenuity, passion and ambitious creativity that our family taught us with new ideas and innovations and introduce Diforti to passionate cooks and eaters everywhere.
