The idea behind Olivocracy is to spread the love for Organic and Biodynamic Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
It all started from our agronomic and culinary tradition. The olive trees are part of our landscape, the olive harvest is a happy moment of Autumn and finally in November the new extra virgin olive oil arrives to our homes. When you have guests over for dinner, it is a great sign of hospitality to offer the best oil you have in the pantry as a final touch to every dish on the table.
It is quite normal for us to talk about the new oil and comment its peculiar taste.
We really want to spread this beautiful tradition, the extreme pleasure and fun of tasting Extra Virgin Olive Oil and the expertise required to match it with the right dish and make the most out of our “green gold!”
We would love to have a positive impact on the Planet.
Food production touches every single inhabitant of our world more than any other industry. Farming affects the planet’s health so we support production methods that are safe for the environment, the farmers (to avoid them being exploited by a rapacious industry and intoxicated by poisonous pesticides) and the consumers (as conventional farming methods can leave traces of unwanted substances in the food we eat).
We stand for a holistic approach to food production, caring for the soil and the air, promoting a fair treatment to the producers and bringing a top-quality, healthy product to the consumers.
We want to trigger a virtuous cycle where all the players benefit of each other’s choices.
That is why we bring you a selection of exquisite single estate Organic & Biodynamic Extra Virgin Olive Oils to the UK that will take your dishes to the next level of taste.
Passion, knowledge, transparency and harmony with nature are our producers’ key values.
ORGANIC AND BIODYNAMIC PRODUCERS
They get the best from nature by being in harmony with its rhythm. Their products are non-GMO and only natural fertilizers are used. Top level of quality evolves from knowledge, wisdom, extensive research and the firm belief that nature has many gifts to offer.
They aim to prioritize the consumer’s needs in terms of quality and health benefits, over profit, over the logic of no-matter-what-the-consequences-on-the-environment-and-your-health-are.
Introducing the consumers to their top-of-the-range product(s) and the holistic production methods, the producers aspire to a better and broader understanding that the quality of the product and its health benefits are essentially linked to a transparent production chain of loving and expert processes that are respectful to the planet.
Their main objective and strongest motivation is to trigger a virtuous cycle, where all the players benefit from a close collaboration between humans and nature.
