- The origins
Vito Galantino, an extra virgin olive oil taster, decides to start a new business. Thanks to his great determination and far-sightedness, he acquires a majestic Nineteenth Century mill-house and turns it into on olive oil mill.
- The Flavoured Oils.
Rediscovering an ancient technique, Michele Galantino produces the first flavoured oil: the Lemon Olive Oil. It is produced by crushing olives and fresh lemons together, without the use of any added essences. It is only the first oil in a new line that now includes thirteen olive oils flavoured with citrus fruits or fresh herbs.
Galantino obtains two important certifications for its products: Organic Farming and P.D.O. (Protected Denomination of Origin) Terra di Bari – Castel del Monte.
- Now - The taste of excellence.
Galantino Oil Mill uses olives from the Fenice family estate and from 2000 reliable growers. In its innovative production plant it has the traditional stone grinders and the new cold-extraction centrifugation system. Every batch of olive oil is carefully analysed in the laboratory and then tasted and approved by the Oil Master. Then Galantino extra virgin olive oil arrives in the kitchens and on the tables of very demanding customers, in the best hotels and restaurants and in the best gourmet shops all over the world.
