Identity and history

Vito Giambò, the owner of the company, belongs to a family that for generations has grown and commercialized the Mediterranean plants. In 1980 he decided to focus all his energy on the production of ornamental citrus plants in pots for export to the Italian and European markets. The choice was a winning one! The company has grown steadily and gradually over the years thanks to the passion and love of Vito and his collaborators for growing these plants. The Vito Giambo’s company was founded in 2000 and today covers an area of 220,000 square metres, including computerised greenhouses and above-ground cultivation areas, with a staff of 60 employees, agronomists and field workers. In 2005, thanks to its high level of quality and professionalism, the company successfully obtained the MPS-FRUIT & VEGETABLES certification for the edibility of fruit on plants, a certification scheme that includes requirements for sustainability, reliability, hygiene and transparency. This has also guaranteed the company prestigious collaborations with the Sicilian Agricultural Institutes, which have conferred on the Sicilian Region's Department of Education and Vocational Training, with D.D.S. no. 1681 of 11/05/2011, the status of Sicily's first plant nursery company as a Vocational Training Body.Each member of the family also contributes to the work of the company in his or her own way, ensuring that the company's goals can be achieved.
