Topic: Free From: Traditions vs Innovations

Speaker: Max Buontempo, Director


The year was 1984. The first Apple Macintosh computer was unveiled to the world. Our screens were graced with cult classic films like Ghostbusters and Indiana Jones. Tetris was soon to become one of the most iconic video games of all time.

And amidst the pop cultural revolution of the decade, brothers Frank and Max started a revolution of their own. With a vision for a healthier way of living and specializing in alternative grains, the two brothers pioneered the ‘free from’ industry…and so, the ORGRAN brand was born.

Now, over 30 years later, ORGRAN is the leading and trusted choice for those with special dietary requirements, enjoyed in more than 70 countries around the world. Plus, with over 80 delicious and nourishing gluten free products to choose from, you can rely on ORGRAN to keep you ‘free to feel good’!

For over 60 years, Roma Food Products still remains as a private, family owned company to this day, and is arguably the world’s largest multi category allergen-friendly food manufacturer.
