Only recently the olive has became subject matter for discussion in organic agriculture. Currently, a good part of the organic national production is focused on olive, demonstrating the privileged position that olive oil plays in the Mediterranean diet and Italian food habits. The Coop. Sociale San Michele Arcangelo of Corridonia embraced this issue and, through a personally and carefully managed olive press, is able to prepare an extra virgin olive oil which will improve genuinely every dish.
The Coop. Sociale San Michele Arcangelo was founded in 2007, with the purpose of helping disadvantaged people to reintegrate into society through new incentives and growth opportunities. Over the years, with this noble purpose, the Cooperative has created a thriving business, which is closely linked to the territory and offers products rigorously certified as organic by the Environmental and Ethical Certification Institute (ICEA). San Michele Arcangelo's products are handmade, according to the traditional method, and totally respectful of the environment, everything to guarantee the highest quality for the consumer and an unforgettable experience for every palate.
