Enzo Angileri's passion for nature was attracted by a particular plant, the Aloe Arborescens, which grows in areas similar to his native Sicily, where he was born and raised. Thus he began his agricultural activity with an organic cultivation of Aloe Arborescens.
The climatic conditions, the composition of the soil, the sea breeze and the surrounding environment create optimal conditions for the growth and reproduction of the plants.
Seeing the potential for growth and development, it was decided to buy more land and form a single plot of 12,000 square meters, obtaining an organic cultivation of Aloe Arborescens and Aloe Vera, and at the same time inserting other plants: Moringa, Peppermint, Rosemary, Thymus Serpyllum (Wild Thyme), Olive, Pomegranate, Saffron, Burdock, Goji.
A new business model is now the goal of the young entrepreneur in love with his Sicily, who sets a new challenge in opening a laboratory for the processing of raw materials. After obtaining authorisation from the Ministry of Health, he began producing food supplements unique in Europe at km0.
The company grows, and consumers' approval grows, who recognise the product in the "Teo Natura" brand. The choice of the name comes from an adopted Maremma shepherd puppy, Teo, who becomes the company mascot.
A careful control of the quality of the products and the choice of some markets outside the Italian territory, allows the company to formulate new products, using only raw materials from our crops.
As part of its growth project, the company decides to reach new horizons, setting further challenges in an innovative market, obtaining authorization for new formulas of food supplements in capsules and tablets.
A particular and predominantly agricultural place in western Sicily, precisely Marsala, among natural marine reserves, an ideal ecosystem and a certified organic agriculture, the cultivations of 12,000 square meters of Aloe Arborescens, Aloe Vera and other species of medicinal plants extend. In organic farming we do not use fertilizers, herbicides, fungicides, insecticides and pesticides, so our farm has chosen over time to carry out its commitment to preserve a "synergistic" balance between man and land to protect the biodiversity of the area.
The farm continually establishes collaborations with university bodies with which it undertakes to support studies on the possible uses of the Aloe Arborescens plant and its properties.
Current collaborations include:
- The Department of Agricultural and Food Production Sciences (DISPA) of the University of Catania.
- The Department of Agricultural and Food Production Sciences (DISPA) of the University of Messina.
