FRUITS AND VEGGIES: OUR FAMILY TRADITION. FOR FOUR GENERATIONS

We do our best to always satisfy our customers. Cultivating relationships with customers of all sorts is not something that can be learned overnight. For us, this is the single most precious legacy of the long family tradition in the trade of fruits and vegetables.

In the 1940’s our grandfather Franco Meglini and his father Giovacchino worked in all the markets of Mugello. The long experience in retail has remained in our DNA.

Mauro Meglini – Franco’s son and today’s CEO of LUNICA – entered the family business in 1966, soon followed by his brother Roberto. In the mid 1980’s Pier Luca Angeli, Mauro’s and Roberto’s brother-in-law, joined the family business. LUNICA was born out of the union between the solidity of Meglinis’ and Angelis’ dynamism. Today the story continues with the new generation and a simple aspiration: give value to the agricultural excellences of Mugello, Tuscany’s green heart.
