Modernity and ancient rural tradition – our heritage in Puglia

The oil farm you will visit has almost 25,000 olive trees on its 100 hectares. Between autumn and winter, the olives are hand harvested, following the ancient peasant tradition, and then pressed in the oil mill within 24 hours. This short time frame, where dedication and expertise are essential, guarantees the high quality of the extra virgin olive oil produced.
This company has always combined high technology with tradition, such as the use of modern oil machines with the irreplaceable stone wheels, which ensure the delicate taste of real Italian oil.

Quality certifications of the Bitritto olive oil mill

The oil company strongly believes in the values of the short supply chain, which allows producer and consumer to have a common target: product quality. This makes it possible to create a relationship of trust based on respect for the land and protection of the environment and health.
As evidence of this commitment, which has been carried out over several generations, you can find below the product certificates received by the olive oil mill:

  • Organic farming certification: issued by BIOS, which guarantees the use of a production method that respects human and animal welfare, defends the environmental and cultural biodiversity of the territories and protects the dignity of workers and consumer rights.
  • PDO: the Protected Designation of Origin “Terra di Bari – Bitonto” guarantees that the extra virgin olive oil is obtained from the processing of Ogliarola Barese and Coratina olives, either alone or combined, for a minimum quantity of 80%. The oil under this designation is only produced in oil mills in the area.
  • Slow Food Presidia: these are Slow Food communities that work every day to save native breeds, vegetable and fruit, bread, cheese, cured meat varieties and traditional sweets from extinction… They strive to pass on production techniques and crafts, take care of the environment and enhance landscapes, territories and cultures.
