Who we are

Products from Salento are characterized by the unique and centuries-old Puglia traditions that go into making them. The region’s large number of small farmers create a broad range of products, which makes it challenging for clients who are looking to find the right solution.

 

L’Olivetum was founded on a commitment to supporting local farmers, their traditional practices in Salento, and protecting their centuries-old olive trees. Its aim is to share one of the greatest Italian products, extra-virgin olive oil, with the world, safe in the knowledge that our products are a distinctive symbol of authenticity, purity, and tradition, and are 100% Made in Italy.

 

We select only the best local producers of virgin, extra-virgin and organic olive oil and we take their products abroad to where they have never been tasted before. By trading with several countries, we are able to contribute to the development of the Italian olive oil sector at international level; on one hand, certifying its origin and high quality standards, and on the other, guaranteeing its uniqueness and excellence.

 

All of L’Olivetum’s products are traceable; from harvest to bottle, meaning that a L’Olivetum label is a mark of quality. We pay great attention to both the quality and the origin of the selected products, which makes this company a partner of choice for anyone seeking excellence: from famous Chefs, to luxury hotels and restaurants, to experts.
