Founded by Salvatore Gatto in 1926, it is still today a family business that initially used to trade citrus derivatives. In the 1960s, in the small factory of Barcellona Pozzo di Gotto, the essential oil was extracted by hand, until the Galati Marina plant boosted the industrial processing. In 1988 the production unit was transferred to the industrial area of San Pier Niceto (Messina), where it still operates today.
