The Group operates from a cluster of purposely-built food workshops and factories located in Xewkija, Gozo and aptly known as “The Magro Food Village”. The passion for good food and the deep-rooted family spirit are embraced by the well trained and highly motivated workforce, who are committed to give the best consistent results to their world class clients.
The organisation was established in 1916, when three Magro Brothers decided to join their father who was already a leading general provision merchant. In 1934 they ventured into food processing and established the first tomato processing plant on the tiny Mediterranean island of Gozo. Besides tomatoes and their renowned canning operation, Magro Brothers are today involved in the production of dairy products and in a vast range of award-winning traditional craft food.
The Magro Brothers Group of companies also have investments in property development, real estate and in the retail sector. Recently, a substantial investment was made in the maritime sector with the acquisition of a high-speed craft – HSC Artemis.View more
