Azienda Agricola O 'Professore 1912 was born in Piano di Sorrento (Na) a stone's throw from Sorrento, a land of citrus fruits, colours, fragrances and, of course, flavors.
The company was founded in 1912, when Giuseppe Maresca, class of 1884, began cultivating a flourishing citrus grove.
The cultivation methods, which respect knowledge and tradition, have made available excellent raw materials that the hardworking women of the house have always preserved, transformed and processed into jams, marmalades, sweets, preserves and anything else, reproducing ancient processes. In 2013 the company was awarded the "Sorrento nel Mondo" award as citrus growers of the Sorrento peninsula, with the following recognition: "Contrary to those who abandon citrus groves to neglect and / or speculation, some citrus growers, courageously, continue to keep their citrus grove alive, sometimes with enormous sacrifice. They truly deserve this reward for their work as guardians of what remains of the landscape that made the Sorrento Peninsula famous worldwide".
Today, Azienda Agricola O'Professore continues to replicate the goodness of home-cooking prepared with care to offer the consumer a taste of the charming aromas, elegant colours and fragrant flavours of Sorrento. The aim is to preserve the heritage of said knowledge and tradition, while also respecting the commitment and hard work of the forefathers who handed down this piece of land and their invaluable wisdom. This is done with the same accuracy, meticulousness and prevalent use of raw materials, without the addition of additives, dyes or preservatives, according to a simple philosophy that has become their slogan: 'Produced with love for homely things and nothing else'.
