Our company was founded in Termini Imerese, in Sicily,
where it was born into an age-old tradition dating back to the 18th century. Not many people know that Sicily was one of the first ice producers in Europe. As far back as 1756, people were turning snow from the Nebrodi, the Madonie and Etna into ice, before selling it for various food and medical uses. They even exported it by boat, bringing its cooling effects to the entire Mediterranean.
The raw material used to produce ICE3 is ultra-pure soft water from the springs of the Madonie mountain range. In addition to its microbiological purity, the water from these springs also has a low mineral content and a low alkaline level, making the ice even purer and lower in minerals. This way, the ice melting in a drink doesn’t alter its organoleptic properties and no substances that could alter the original flavour are released, no matter what the beverage is.
We use strictly the latest available technology to guarantee a product that completely respects the environment:
The Tube Ice production method provides a greater yield compared to conventional ice production methods and has a lower environmental impact.
is of our most recent innovations. Taking place before the packaging process, it allows us to dry the ice preventing the ice cubes from joining together in the bag.
is a system for selecting cubes prior to packaging. The entire production process complies with all hygiene and
food safety regulations. All the machinery is connected to a single control station which manages activity, checks the efficiency of the individual components and flags up any deviation from standard values.
Superior quality is ensured as the production process and final product both comply with hygiene and safety standards for food production.
