How important is traceability! Thanks to this system of identification and documentation, we can reconstruct the entire history of a product. We can follow every process, from raw material to finished product and vice versa, including every stage of production and distribution, and also identify the individual operators involved at all these various stages. This system is all the more important when it involves a high value, high quality product such as Lazio extra-virgin olive oil. Traceability is a crucial element in the extra-virgin olive oil supply chain, allowing us to reconstruct the history of the oil throughout every phase: from fruit to milling, and from storage to mixing and final packaging.
The system is particularly stringent in protecting the consumer, operating throughout the whole of this Italian agricultural sector and providing a full set of data: from records in relation to the process of olive cultivation to information regarding genetic background, fertilisation methods, plant protection treatments, and checking and testing procedures. But to provide maximum transparency, it also provides information regarding the processes of milling, storage, decanting and final packaging; ensuring the consumer is offered a safe, healthy and fully guaranteed final product.
