Tuna Florio, produced by the Nino Castiglione company, is much more than just canned tuna. This prized tuna is an emblem of the historic Florio family, who revolutionized the culture and economy of Sicily during the Belle Époque period. Updating tuna processing and preservation techniques. Today, the heirs of the Castiglione family, who are responsible for the rebirth of Tuna Florio, continue this tradition with meticulous attention to detail. Each tuna fillet is carefully cut by hand and cured for at least three months in olive oil and salt, guaranteeing a very high quality product. The canning process takes place through slow production machines to preserve the integrity and compactness of the slice, while the seasoning releases aromas and flavors that take you back in time. And as if this wasn't enough, the tuna used is of yellow-fin species and is fished following the principles of the Dolphin Safe project, which guarantees sustainable fishing methods by excluding the capture of dolphins. Tuna Florio is not just a food, but a piece of Sicilian history and culture that combines quality, flavor and sustainability in a single, exquisite product.
