Misitano & Stracuzzi has the combined experience of four generations of the families of the original founders in the processing and production of citrus essential oils. Its history can be traced back to the early part of the twentieth century, making it one of the oldest producers of its type in Sicily. Often referred to as ‘God’s Kitchen’ due to its fertile soils and pleasant climate, Sicily provides ideal growing conditions for citrus fruits, which is reflected in the high-quality essential citrus oils produced from them.

Omega Ingredients Ltd specialises in the innovative fusion of biochemistry with natural materials, to create the very best quality. Founded in 2001 by biochemists Steve Pearce and Elizabeth Pearce, Omega Ingredients benefits from their decades of experience within the international food and drink ingredients sector.

Steve Pearce, CEO and founder of Omega Ingredients, said; “Omega Ingredients source and create the best quality products that are bespoke for individual business needs particularly when they want to create new ingredients or to develop and launch new product ranges. Beginning a partnership with a company which has one of the oldest histories of essential citrus oils processing and production in Italy is very exciting for Omega Ingredients. We specialise in the cutting edge fusion of biochemistry with natural materials to create the very best specialist natural flavours, ingredients and aromas. Therefore, we are extremely keen to marry the old with the new, as we establish the prestigious heritage and excellence of Misitano & Stracuzzi essential oils within our product offering to the UK market.”

Pearce continued; “The tradition and exceptional quality that comes through in these products is self-evident, and it’s a pleasure for us to be able to offer the Misitano & Stracuzzi brand in the UK. Manufacturers of food, beverages and cosmetics products will now be able to source these superb citrus essential oils for the first time.”


Antonio Stracuzzi, chairman of Misitano & Stracuzzi commented; “Misitano & Stracuzzi are thrilled to announce this partnership with Omega Ingredients, who will now represent us in the UK as we grow our business in this market. We are extremely proud of our tradition, processing citrus fruit and producing citrus essential oils in Messina, Sicily for almost 100 years. This landmark partnership will see the ready availability of our product to businesses from a range of sectors in the UK seeking top quality citrus essential oils for products ranging from fragrances for perfumes and cosmetics to flavourings and ingredients.”

Stracuzzi added; “The passion, ambition and commitment to quality which the original founders lived by is still alive today in the current proprietors, we who are now the fourth generation of producers. This is what drives our business forward in markets across the world, and we look forward to a great partnership with Omega Ingredients in the UK as more and more customers in the trade discover our essential citrus oils.”
