Fontanaro Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil is Slow Food Presidium

It’s the sixth consecutive year for our Organic EVOO Fonte della Pace to be awarded with the Slow Food Presidium (together with the Chiocciola Prize). 

We are concerned to share with our friends not only quality but also health benefits of our organic oil. 

To be a Slow Food Presidium, it is necessary to respect these two elements:

  • Environmental sustainability (the “clean” element -alongside “good and fair”- which means respecting the fertility of the land and of hydrographic ecosystems, excluding the use of synthetic chemical substances, maintaining traditional farming and land management practices, …)
  • Social sustainability (the “fair” element: producers must have an active role and total autonomy in the management of their activity, they must collaborate and together define the rules of production and forms of product promotion, possibly joining together to form collectives)
What a surprise!

We participated at the olive harvest with the Pinelli family. I must say that the atmosphere that was breathed was magical. Then we attended their oil festival, along with a hundred other people. Fantastic experience that we will take with us. Grazie mille!

Endless flavour

Every time we come to Paciano meeting Lucia, we are amazed at how the simplest things can be the most wonderful.
