European Union’s System Of Approval is Guarantee of Highest Quality of Olive Oil

The Protected Designation of Origin (PDO) – is the European recognition (Reg. 510/06) for an agricultural product or food whose entire production cycle, from raw material to finished product (processing and packaging), is carried in a given territory. The combination of natural factors (raw materials, environmental characteristics and location) and human (production and traditional craft), make the product unique and not reproducible elsewhere. The production rules are more strict to ensure the utmost quality.
The Protected Geographical Indication – PGI – is the European recognition (Reg. 501/06) for an agricultural product or food, produced and processed in a specific geographic area. The link with the geographical area of reference may also be limited to a single phase of production (production of raw materials and / or processing of olives).
These products meet strict production rules that describe characteristics of the product, geographic area, methods of cultivation and processing, varieties of olives. This is a self-regulatory code, whose compliance by operators in the olive is constantly monitored by a third party recognized by the competent authorities.
Organic Olive Oil – complies with the method of production governed by community regulation EC Regulation 834/07, which certifies and monitors all stages of production of food. In particular, the organic farming requires the cultivation without the use of synthetic chemicals (artificial, made in chemical laboratories) and GMO (genetically modified organisms), rotation of crops for protection and prevention from pests, diseases, weeds and fertilizing the soil with only natural organic matter and minerals.

Olive oils recognized by the European Union are Greece, Italy, France, Spain & Portugal
