Salov Renews Partnership with the Master in Food Quality Management and Communication at the University of Pisa

Salov continues its journey alongside young talents in the field of quality Food and Olive Oil, thanks to the renewed collaboration with the Master in Food Quality Management and Communication at the University of Pisa. Three scholarships dedicated to Filippo Berio, the flagship brand of the company, will be available for the top three students of the Master’s program. Today, Emanuele Siena, Marketing Director of the Company, gave a testimony in the classroom.

Milan, April 19, 2024 – Salov SpA, an industrial group among the world’s leading players in the olive oil sector based in Massarosa (Lucca), which owns the Filippo Berio and Sagra brands, has signed an agreement for the second consecutive year with the Master in Food Quality Management and Communication at the University of Pisa, a high-level university education program aimed at recent graduates from all disciplines and professionals already working in the field, designed for those who want to acquire managerial skills to successfully work in the agri-food industry, catering, and environmental sustainability sector.

The renewed partnership between the University of Pisa and Salov SpA demonstrates the company’s active commitment to supporting excellent research institutions in order to strengthen its ties with the territory, with the aim of contributing to its growth and valorization, particularly of its young resources. Salov, always present in the province of Lucca, is aware that the territory on which it operates is of fundamental importance because it is where it roots its own history.

This year, three scholarships dedicated to Filippo Berio will also be awarded to the best students of the Master in Food Quality Management and Communication. Salov has been involved in educational activities with the testimony in the classroom by Emanuele Siena, Marketing Director of the Company. The focus of the intervention held on April 19 was Filippo Berio – Salov’s premium olive oil brand, present in Italy and abroad – with the Italian Case History of the “Berio Method”, which distinguishes the range of Filippo Berio extra virgin olive oils. It is a path of quality and certified guarantee from the field to the bottle that selects only the best olives from sustainable methods of integrated agriculture, launched in 2020 and aimed at quality and the environment. The intervention continued by illustrating Salov’s commitment to sustainability and the results emerged from the second Sustainability Report, published last October.

“Collaborating again this year with the University of Pisa’s Master program is a source of great satisfaction. Salov has been actively collaborating with the University of Pisa for years, such as with the Department of Agricultural, Food and Agro-environmental Sciences within the Long Life Oil applied research project, but there have also been collaborations with the Department of Pharmacy or with the Department of Chemical Engineering. We believe in young talents and want to invest concretely in their education by enhancing the excellence of the territory in which we operate. Partnerships like this have great value because they represent an opportunity to improve global knowledge of the benefits of olive oil, to make its quality known, and to educate about its use by spreading its culture and its fundamental role in our diet.” – declares Emanuele Siena.

“The renewal of the collaboration with the Salov Group is a great vote of confidence for the Master program. For nine years, it has been carried out at the University of Pisa and has over time renewed its content and enriched partnerships with numerous companies in the Tuscan and national territory. The Master program has also received recognition in recent years from the Ministry of Economic Development (MISE) as a strategic Master program because it is dedicated to a sector as important for the national economy as the agri-food sector, as evidenced by the National Recovery and Resilience Plan. With Salov, a professional synergy has been created, and not only because the CEO, Fabio Maccari, wanted to award the prizes in a convivial moment at Villa Filippo Berio, the company’s olive grove where numerous projects of sustainable olive growing are carried out, sharing with all our students a direct experience on the cultivation and production of quality olive oil.” – declares Professor Angela Tarabella, Director of the Master’s program.
