Berio method: the certified, sustainable and traceable quality path
All Filippo Berio Extra Virgin Olive Oils are the result of skilful processing obtained thanks to the Berio Method: the path of quality and guarantee traced and certified from the field to the bottle with more restrictive parameters than required by the regulations, which selects only the best and healthy olives, harvested at the right degree of ripeness and rigorously cold-pressed, coming from eco-sustainable crops, because they are based on the principles of integrated agriculture.
The method is controlled at every stage and certified by SGS, an independent and authoritative external body, which guarantees not only the qualitative characteristics of the product, but also environmental sustainability along the entire supply chain.
In fact, Filippo Berio oils have a complete and exhaustive traceability system, which is not expressed only through information relating to the origin of the raw material. By entering the production batch on the website www.filippoberio.it, it is possible to discover a lot of useful information such as: production date, predominant cultivars used, the origin of the olives and the place of milling, as well as the organoleptic and sensory profile, including the analyzes carried out for each bottle showing the individual quality parameters found and compared with the limits imposed by law.
