Born in Asmara, Eritrea, in 1948 as a fruit and vegetables Import and Export Company, the small company founded by Mr. Guido De Nadai soon became one of the most important produce dealers in the Middle East and the first one to enter markets such as Saudi Arabia, UAE and Kuwait.
The brand Unifrutti and the group itself was born in 1983 with the first investment of Mr. Guido De Nadai in Chile, building thus an integrated chain from production, to its own shipping company as well as distribution centers in the markets
In the nineties, the heirs coordinated and lead by the son Giancarlo increased the investments in Chile and started investing also in South Africa, Turkey and the Philippines. At the same time the markets of Europe, Middle East and Japan were aggressively penetrated.
In 1991 Unifrutti Turkey was established, with the main goal of supplying quality produce from Turkey to the EU and the Middle East. In the years to follow Unifrutti Turkey widened its markets reaching African countries and the Far East.
In 2014 Unifrutti Mersin Ltd. Was established with 100% shares owned by the De Nadai Group (DNG).
