A brand that focuses on the aromas and flavours of the most authentic part of Southern Italy, Sibat Tomarchio, operating since 1920 and still a family owned company, is the market leader in Sicily in the sector of fruit drinks. Its longevity and success are based on a number of factors ranging from the choice of the raw materials used to the ethics and vision of its management. It is on the strength of this that Sibat Tomarchio crossed the domestic boundaries to join the international scene in the sector of fruit beverages.
The flavours’ secrets
There are three secrets to getting delicious flavour. First of all, they only use citruses and fruits from Sicily, from the local supply chain, some of which are organic and certified. They are working together with the district of Sicilian citrus, which includes the Consortium of Red Sicilian Oranges, the PGI Syracuse Lemon, the PDO Orange of Ribera, and the Tangerine of Ciaculli. Tormachios drinks feature 16-20% fruit juice, which is higher than the market average. Second, the water they use is sourced from Mount Etna, which has a peculiar mineralization and thus a unique taste. The third secret to delicious drinks is to use revisited, traditional, craft processes. For example, they still use essential oils of citrus fruit, which they buy from the local growers. Tormachio were the first in their industry (fruit juice) to introduce a traceable organic raw materials’ supply chain, that is a short, monitored and controlled supply chain. Tormachio maintain close relationships with growers, they talk to them directly, and they know the places where the fruit is cultivated, they consider the wine sector as their role model on this.
