ABOUT THE NAME

The name Casadona is based on a combination of “casa” (“home” in Italian, which relates to the fact it is a family office) and “dona”, the first half of the Donadeo family name. The values of excellence, trust, respect and responsibility are important aspects of our brand and are a key foundation of how we do business.

Our family roots in Puglia, Italy are a source of history and pride. Puglia is a fertile area renowned for agriculture, in particular olives. Today we strive to just as successfully grow seed investments into thriving and sustaining entities. Although we feel that as a family business, pride in the past is important, we are also proud of our modern brand which is firmly rooted in, and relevant to the family position today.
