Fratelli Battaglio

The company

according to us

A journey through quality fruit, full of our care, commitment and passion, to let you enjoy the authentic taste of nature.

We select the best fruit in the world and bring it to the tables of Italy, for over 50 years.

Our work

We import and distribute the best selection of exotic fruit and traditional fruit from the southern hemisphere to Italy, in order to offer naturally delicious products even in the off-season.

Our mission is to guarantee the quality of our products in every circumstance. We follow this goal day after day, through scrupulous controls of our whole production line, from farming to ripening, from packaging all the way to the most efficient transport solutions.

A workplace that is good and healthy, just like our fruit.

Since 1972, the philosophy of quality has guided us every day
based on three fundamental principles:


We create solid and and loyal relationships with partners, collaborators and suppliers, bsaed on trust and reliability. These professional relationships allow us to be transparent with our clients and to keep our promise, offering only fruit that is high quality.

Dove e quando


We guarantee perfect consistency in our fruit and our work. In all our daily activities, we aim for consistency and constant quality to reach our quality goals.

Valori nutrizionali


We love what we do and we prove it every day with the fruits of our labour. Because we can only improve season after season, keeping up our eagerness, with passion and enthusiasm.

Reponsible Organization

Along with these three principles, there is a fourth concept that defines our work: responsability.
For this reason, in accordance with the Italian Legislative Decree No 231/2001 on production responsability, we have decided to make thee following documents available for consultation:

Documentation that proves, once again, the transparency and reliability of our company.
