Cesarin Spa joins the IRCA Group

We are delighted to welcome Cesarin SpA, the leading artisanal fruit-based ingredients company, into the IRCA Group.

Established in 1920, Cesarin, led by Alberto Cesarin, has been capable of evolving from a family-size business to a modern international enterprise. The Company’s success is rooted in its special attention to innovation and research in fruit-based products, coupled with a commitment to utmost quality and a strong artisanal care and passion.
Today, Cesarin is present in more than 85 countries, employs over 100 people, and boasts a unique know-how in the sector, based on production processes that are the result of years of experience and craftsmanship. Cesarin produces high quality semifinished products, like candied fruit found in Italian panettone, or sour cherries for gelato, all representing the pinnacle of Italian excellence in ingredients.

With the acquisition from IRCA, Cesarin becomes part of a portfolio of brands including JoyGelato, Dobla and In2Food USA, reinforcing IRCA Group’s leadership and expanding its large assortment of high value ingredients into further attractive adjacencies.



Cesarin is the Italian leader in Candied Fruit. The production processes it has perfected and refined over the years, among which the French candying and semi-candying, guarantee the preservation of the organoleptic characteristics of consistency, shape, and colour of the fresh fruit. Cesarin’s offer includes traditional candies, purees and fruit jams for pastry, cherries and sour cherries for ice cream, frozen and non-frozen fruit purees and pastes, all produced following the company philosophy of avoiding the use of thickeners, dyes, emulsifiers or artificial flavourings.
