The Società Cooperativa Colline del Tanagro was founded in 1999 and is involved in the processing of olives and the sale of quality extra virgin olive oil. It has around 50 members who are involved in the cultivation of centuries-old olive groves.
The olive groves lie on the hills of the Tanagro river between the municipalities of Auletta, Caggiano and Pertosa. In our oil mill, located a few hundred metres from the marvellous Pertosa-Auletta Caves, the olives from this land are cold-pressed at 27 degrees, without any chemical treatment, within 24 hours of harvesting; when they are still healthy and very fresh. From producer to consumer without any middleman. Each member collects a quantity of oil to take home for family consumption, the remainder is stored in stainless steel silos kept in an air-conditioned environment at around 19° degrees, and then packaged and sold.
