Who are We?
Our family is engaged in producing and manufacturing high quality dried fruits to meet our customers' demands.
Our business traces back to November 14th. 1906, when Serafín Frezzi and his wife Severina Romagnoli, both Italian immigrants, arrived in Argentina, full of dreams. In 1928, Serafín purchased his first parcel of land called "La Severina" and started working as an agricultural producer. As from 1968, the company's name was changed to FREZZI S.A. 

In 1974, Serafín settled in Chilecito (Province of La Rioja, Argentina), a town located in the foothills of the Andes, at 1200 m above sea level. This is where the vineyard business was started under the direction of Héctor Oscar Frezzi, agricultural engineer. Three years later, the first sun-dried grapes were turned into raisins and commercialized under the trademark of Pasafre, registered on July 19th, 1977. In 1990, the quality work in the vineyards was acknowledged by the INTA (National Institute of Agricultural Technology) through the Annual Award for Improving Agricultural Production. In 1991, FREZZI S.A. became environmentally concerned and had the vineyards Organically Certified under international standards.

Since February 23rd.2003, raisins have been commercialized by L.I.R.A. S.A. which was founded by Héctor Oscar Frezzi on February 11th. 1999. This company is currently involved in the industrialization of food production with expertise in processing and commercializing both conventional and certified organic raisins.

In 2003, L.I.R.A. S.A. opened its industrial plant with a modern processing line that allows to process raisins for both FREZZI SA and other nearby producers, to continue working with Pasafre trademark, and to serve Frezzi's existing customers.L.I.R.A. S.A. counts on the following organic Certifications: ARGENCERT for EEC, NOP for USA, KOSHER, and ISO22000:2005.
So as to gain experience and make products known, L.I.R.A. S.A. attends various international fairs and business rounds such as Biofach (Nuremberg), Fancy Food (New York), Natural Products Expo East, All Things Organics, etc. Our ongoing work and customer service have been key in positioning our company as the main Organic Raisins exporter of Argentina; 80% of our production is exported to Germany, England, the Netherlands, Malaysia, and Brazil.
