Organic olive oil "Terre Antiche" of the Cooperativa San Mauro Cilento

For several years now, we have been cooperating with the Cooperativa Agricola Nuovo Cilento from San Mauro Cilento.

Their olive oil is produced on an ecological basis, tastes excellent and is also an excellent ingredient for a large choice of Mediterranean dishes. It contains a large number of antioxidants, which have got a particularly positive influence on the human organism and are a good protective means, amongst others, against the ageing process. 

About Cooperativa Nuovo Cilento

The agricultural cooperative „Nuovo Cilento“ was founded in 1976 and counts about 200 members. The cooperative is the largest producer of organic olive oil in Italy. Concerning the production and certification of organic olive oil and of olive oil with trademarked certificate of origin, the cooperative is surely the pioneer within Italy.

Cooperativa Nuovo Cilento aims at supporting its producers with the adoption of sustainable production according to organic principles and at guaranteeing adequate producer's prices for the farmers.

Olive oil extra vergine

The three kinds of olive oil extra vergine "Terre Antiche" (organic production), "Terre dei Monaci" (with trademarked certificate of origin) und "Terre del Casale" are made from olive varieties found in the Cilento - Rotondella, Salella, Pisciottana, Ogliara, Frantoio and Leccino. Very though and resistant, they are perfectly suited for extensive and sustainable cultivation.

For the extraction of oil, Cooperativa Nuovo Cilento uses the system of continuous cold extraction. This particularly gentle method preserves the valuable antioxidants (polyphenol and vitamin E) and natural taste of the olives. With its low acid value of only 0.4 % it counts among Italy’s best olive oils.

Of course the production of olive oil leaves residues and it is remarkable that even they are used: the olive pips for producing warmth and the olive pulp as fertilizer.
