A story of experience and honesty.

Oil Don Pietro

The Ruggeri family

More than a century of pride and honesty


The Ruggeri family boasts in the oil production and trading sector a history of experience and honesty spanning more than a century, since when the one who was the artificer of the first business expansion, (whose name we proudly chose for our brand of opening on new scenarios of the future “Don Pietro”) at the age of ten started travelling far and wide on a mule- drawn cart routes, roads, paths and lanes in Messina area, educated from childhood to true affection for his land and for the fruits it produces, if respected, if cared for, if loved!

Without ever betraying the legacy of Don Pietro his children and grandchildren, persevering in giving prestige and above all the right recognition to the genuine work of the one who has made of the “respect” towards the costumer and the product a pillar of his sphere of personal and professional relationships, always supported by a strong attachment to the Sicilian roots and animated towards an authentic emotional transport to the attention of plants, reason why it’s been chosen the best “cultivars” of the most suitables areas for years.

The current historical period, particularly steeped in challenges, encourages Ruggeri Oils to look to the future with a different gaze, tended with pride and innovative spirit towards
evolutionary programmatic outlets, firmly anchored to the certainties and peculiarities of the generational past and, for the first time, female.

In fact, after years of men representing and promoting the Ruggeri brand, the baton is passed into the hands of Venusia Grillo, daughter-in-law of Vincenzo Ruggeri who is the refines athor of the brand “Don Pietro”, a young 40-year-old woman with a split soul in a concrete perception of reality deepened through legal studies, and an artistic and cultral sensibility; all accompanied by a natural propensity towards the concept of beauty, accurate and refined, even in tastes and flavors. Her will, in line with what has always made the Ruggeri brand recognizable in the market of Sicilian quality products, remains still in favoring excellent supply chains, whose supreme ultimate result is and always will be the satisfaction of the costumer with the pleasure for the palate, thanks to the KING of our mediterranean diet that flavors, enriches and enhances.
