OUR STORY

A new experience that has
its roots in the 1970s

With a rich family history in the Sicilian fruit and vegetable market, our team is composed of three young entrepreneurs. 
Since the ‘70s, our families have been exporting tomatoes and other specialities from our land to markets throughout Italy.

Strengthened by our roots, with a fresh determination and desire to work, we pay tribute to our Sicilian lands in the formation of a new company: 

ORTEX - Ortaggi Express.
We are driven by the ideal of bringing a new wind of innovation to the fruit and vegetable trade.

Our mission is to facilitate the meeting between supply and demand in the footsteps of innovative techniques.
