OLIVE FARM ARCHIBUSACCI g&F: History and mission

Representing the excellence of olive oil production since 1935

When we talk about olive oil of Canino is mandatory to mention the Archibusacci family. We have been continuously active for nearly one hundred years in the field of olive oil production.

In 1935, our family purchased the current mill, located in via del Boschetto, Canino. It soon becomes one of the first in the province to be driven by electrical energy.

In 1966, another milestone is reached. Our mill is the first in Italy to use stainless steel in all stages of processing.

In 1975 the factory was expanded, adding to the traditional crusher grinds on stone, a centrifugal extractor, that allowed to cope with the increased olive production in the area.

Today, the Archibusacci oil mill is the only one in Canino to produce olive oil both with modern and traditional systems (such as grinds on stone cold production) and also was among the first in Canino to produce a new line of organic olive oil, obtained from olives not treated with pesticides or chemical fertilizers. Since 1999 it has started the production of P.D.O. extra virgin olive oil (Protected Designation of Origin).

During the past olive season, we have produced about 80% of the P.D.O. Canino production, for which, over the years, we have been awarded by the Chamber of Commerce of Latium with the Gold Medal for the "lightly fruity" category and the Silver Medal for the "fruity" category. In addition, thanks to the production of the P.D.O. extra virgin olive oil, we have been ranked among the top ten oil in Italy.

Every technological innovation in the processing of olives into oil is being followed and implemented at our mill. The commitment that our family has made in recent years is aimed at promoting the extra virgin olive oil of Canino. Our intention is to continue the work of our predecessors, with the same passion and enthusiasm, improving olive oil quality, in order for its goodness and wholesomeness to be appreciated even beyond the borders of Italy.
