The good reputation of extra virgin olive oil has been increasing worldwide. During the past fifty years, its production and consumption have grown and spread exponentially, in part thanks to the trail left by important scientific discoveries that have confirmed its nutritional and healthy properties as an important part of a well balanced diet.
Even the interest and curiosity of consumers towards new kinds of extra virgin continues to increase. Yet, for a small olive farm, leaving aside anonymity and reaching out to the global market is far from easy, since it requires funds and skills that are often not available to them.
Finding special oils made by small farms, selecting them and purchasing them directly are complicated and expensive operations for importers distributors and consumers abroad and often represent a real obstacle.
