In Sicily, almonds are a staple, and the Avola almonds are preferred for use in quality pastry, refreshing almond granita, almond milk, marzipan, torrone, biscuits and other confectionery. These treasured nuts are known as a source of dense nutrition, and therefore are also often eaten as a snack on their own.

For three generations, the Munafò family has been producing Pizzuta d’Avola almonds and other nuts, honouring traditional values combined with the utmost respect for nature and the environment. Founded in 1950 in Avola, the motherland of the prized cultivar Pizzuta D’Avola, the company passionately carries out the processes brought forth by nature, and delivers a product which is highly nutritious and suitable for a variety of uses. The mild climate of the Monti Iblei is ideally suited to produce almonds which are elegant in shape and in flavour.

Avola almonds are known to be the most nutritious almonds in the world. They are a natural source of protein, while being low in saturated fat. The almonds are high in fibre, vitamin E, and packed with minerals such as potassium, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus and iron. Avola almonds are also dense with polyphenols, powerful antioxidants which are contained in nutrient-dense fruits and vegetables.
