Founded in 1971, l’Olivicola Casolana is a cooperative of olive growers who produce both table and oil olives.
Initially it was born producing green olives in brine in the local Intosso variety. Since October 2016, our Intosso olive has been recognized as a Slow Food presidium and we market it both as a green olive, brine and as extra virgin olive oil.
Currently, we produce:
No flavorings are used but fresh ingredients for the lemon, orange and garlic seasonings; dried for the dressing truffle, basil and chilli, all of which are locally produced.
Over the years we have been awarded several times at Sol, Sirena d’Oro di Sorrento, Slow Food, Biol, L’Ercole Oliario, National Review of Monovarietal Oils, etc.
We processes many customized products for several companies, such as Fantini Vini, Cantina Velenosi, Cantina Spinelli, Cantine Mucci, D.a.c., and others
We export to England, Denmark, Germany, Canada and the USA.
Since October 2016 we have been IFS and BRC certified.
The olive groves of the 125 olive growers members of our cooperative are geographically located both in the area adjacent to the Maiella National Park and within it, that is to say in a privileged uncontaminated environment, that is almost unmatched elsewhere.
The altitude, the particular characteristics of the soil and the warm Abruzzo sun create that special microclimate that gives the fruit its ripening, ideal for obtaining oil and table olives of the highest nutritional and sensorial quality.
The Casolana olive grove produces 100% organic extra virgin olive oil, dressings with extra virgin olive oil and various types of table olives.
