Certifies Fondo Gionino Extra Virgin Olive Oil as organic!

But what exactly does this label mean for our customers?

First and foremost, it represents our unwavering commitment to environmental stewardship. Each product carrying the Bio European Green Label meets rigorous organic and ecological standards, ensuring that it's not only good for you but also for the planet.

Grossa di Gerace

Our Extra Virgin Olive Oil is extracted from the finest Geracese olives, or “Grossa di Gerace” which are a native variety from Calabria. The drupes (or individual olives) are elliptical and, when they begin to form, are light green in color. As ripening progresses, they begin to turn violet and finally black.

Each individual olive weighs, on average, just under one ounce, of which approximately 20% is extracted as oil. ​The remaining by product, olive pulp or olive cake, can be used as a heat source in furnaces or can be pressed into briquettes for fireplaces.
