Selection and Process
Product processed with delicacy and care of the environment.
Plantations under agro-climatological conditions ideal for the cultivation of nuts.
In the first half of the twentieth century, many Italian families arrived in the faraway lands of Chile, mainly from the north. Giuseppe, Angelo and Michele’s ones came here too, seeking peace and new horizons; working from sun to sun with great passion, they brought to Chilean society values typical of their culture and identity that were quickly recognized, and helped the growth of the nation. With these same values already in the XXI century, the proud descendants of these three families decided to gather and repeat history by creating Agricola Fontanabuona, following the example of these great and courageous entrepreneurs. Today through our production we thank their legacy by bringing our products full of flavor and memories to the tables of Italian and world households.
