Who we are

L’Olivetum was established in the heart of Apulia, Salento, founded by a team of young agronomists and experts with the intention of selecting small and medium-sized producers of high quality extra virgin olive oil and export their products as far as they have never arrived. 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.

 

Made in Italy products are characterized by the unique and centuries-old traditions that go into making them. In the longest region of Italy, Apulia, the food and wine culture is distinguished by the richness of raw materials available in a fertile area bordered by the sea. In this area, the presence of an increasing number of farms and their products gives the customer a wide range of choices for their culinary needs; however, itmakes the right selection based on objective criteria increasingly difficult.

 

All of L’Olivetum’s products are traceable; from harvest to bottle, meaning that L’Olivetum label is a mark of quality. Today the company is led by Cristiana Di Filippo who, with the title of Olive Oil Sommelier, guarantees that the products are always up to the most discerning palates, exporting excellent quality evo oils along with Apulia’s unique and authentic flavors.
