In 2017 Donato Parisi proposes to name a street of the city of Rossano to the local autochthonous cultivar, Dolce di Rossano, as proof of the company's attention to the enhancement of the territory.

The precursor of the family business was Giuseppe Donato Parisi, who in the 20's started the agricultural production of oil, flour and wine.
Later it focused on the production of extra virgin olive oil.

Today the farm company manages about 70 hectares of olive groves with different types of olive cultivars. In the 2000s, the company launched a special selection of mono-cultivars consisting of six varieties of oils (Dolce di Rossano, Nocellara, Coratina, Carolea, Tondina and Biancolilla).

Analysis

A careful analysis of the chemical / organoleptic standards is applied. Then the oil produced is stored in controlled temperature rooms to avoid its decomposition.

Marketing

The company has chosen direct sales as the main marketing strategy to foster customer loyalty and increase purchasing awareness.
Why is Extra Virgin Olive Oil important?

Extra Virgin Olive Oil is one of the main elements of the Mediterranean diet.
Its organoleptic properties and its nutritional values help to reduce "bad cholesterol" thanks to monounsaturated fats.

What is our philosophy?

We produce and sell but, above all, protect the territory in a sustainable way. We work to increase the value of civil society through our social responsibility.

  • We produce over 70% of the energy used with photovoltaic panels
  • Since 2017 we have adopted two town flowerbeds, taking care of public green areas.

How do we control the quality standards of our work?

With the analysis of the supply chain results.

Our goal is to reduce the time between harvesting and processing olives into oil.
