Our adventure since 1988

Our adventure since 1988

It all began with a visionary and brave man, Pietro Bua. Since he was young, he have always been looking for new challenges, and that is one of the reasons he decided to bet on Prickly Pears, a fruit that was regarded as wild and common by Sicilians.
He started this journey motivated by his passion, dedication and love for his own land. Pietro was not alone facing this challenge: his children Giovanni, Antonino e Salvatore Bua would follow him, and would be guided by his values.
In 1988, we opened the warehouse of the company, and the family embarked on this journey which has led to the improvement of its quality standards and processing methods during this 30 years.
Territory

Territory

Sicily. Sun. Etna.
These are some keywords that perfectly encapsulate what La Deliziosa offers you. For us it is essential to let you taste genuine and unique products grown on the Sicilian soil, and in particular on the rich and breeding ground of the volcano Etna – for example P.D.O. Prickly Pears or Coscia Pears.
Our Producers Association takes in charge the selection of “Sicilian excellence”, that is to say a selection of product closely connected to the land and to territorial identity, as shown by our PDO and PGI certifications.
We also care about preserving the taste and simplicity of our fruits by using sustainable and traditional growing methods.
