Over 40 years of growth and industry leadership
It all started just in 1981, in the Alps region of an Italian province called South Tyrol. Sunshine and blue skies are the norm in this oasis, one of the largest, most intensive fruit-growing areas in all of Europe.
IPRONA’s current offerings include concentrates made from berries, citrus and tropical fruits, infusions and food colorants, functional polyphenol extracts and customised compounds produced with customer input every step of the way.

WE LOVE FRUITS
Building something from scratch is difficult. But it is even more difficult to remain successful in the long term and to secure continuous growth. It requires a conscious and, above all, sustainable use of the available resources. We are convinced that the well-being of our society is based on the three pillars of sustainability and have built our company values on them:
1 - the economic pillar
2 - the social pillar
3 - the environmental pillar
Driving a global business forward requires smart, motivated, engaged and satisfied employees. Recruiting and retaining a best-in-class workforce is a key and ongoing initiative at IPRONA. We pride ourselves on offering challenging and interesting roles, with opportunities for further training and advancement. We also believe good work should be fairly rewarded, which further encourages excellence.
