Sicily Addict was born from the love for Sicily, a wonderful land kissed by the sun and embraced by the sea, the cradle of millenary civilizations and cultures, often the favorite subject of poets and travelers who have handed down its beauty and contradictions with their verses.
It was born from the desire to give voice to this rich, welcoming and fruitful land, which has always given life to unique food and wine products, goodness appreciated all over the world, healthy and tasty products of the land and artisanal productions..
It stems from the desire to allow anyone and in any city in the world to buy and taste the best and most genuine Sicilian products, carefully selected and coming only from local producers, to guarantee their quality and craftsmanship.
Our dream has always been to create an e-commerce that was not only a place to buy the best Sicilian products, with the certainty of receiving only carefully selected products of the highest quality, but also a platform where you can learn more from near the stories of local producers, thus finding a privileged observation point of the Sicilian production chain.
With Siciliy Addict we wanted to fill a knowledge gap of the Sicilian production reality still widespread, making known the stories of those who every day, with passion and commitment, continue to carry on the great production tradition in the food and wine sector of this land.
With our e-commerce we wanted to give the word back to the producers who, by telling themselves on video, reveal the backstory of difficult productions, made unsustainable in the past due to the price war resulting from the competition of large-scale distribution.
Thanks to Sicily Addict we can now offer the customer who wants to buy original Sicilian products, the best online shopping experience, selecting the best producers of the island who marry our project of sustainability and tradition..
All supported by a fast shipping service and by the guarantee of maximum transparency for those who produce handmade products with unique km0 raw materials every day.

“We were among the first in Sicily to launch an online regional product store. After 5 years of activity, I left the project to dedicate myself to the study of Digital Marketing, the creator of Sicily Addict says. But the first love is never forgotten and so, after a year of sector studies and market research, I decided to launch together with my brother sicilyaddict.it. He now maintains the role of videomaker of the company, while a team of Digital Marketing experts supports us in the management of marketing campaigns and business strategy.le”.
