La Cesenate was established in Cesena in 1949.
When an ancient family of pharmacists joined forces with a family of land owners. Respect for the land runs in the lifeblood of this company: the experience of rural work and a vocation for clean farming, free from pesticides.
Production has always been natural and organic, predating the introduction and recognition of organic certifications.
This story began with the production of fruit preserves.
It continues with a specialization in the production of tomato and vegetable preserves as well as fruit purees for babies.
Today La Cesenate is Italy’s number one organic fruit producer and is the majority
shareholder of Alce Nero, a leading brand of the organic market.
