PDO Certification

The oils that bear the words P.D.O. (Protected Denomination of Origin) or P.G.I. (Protected Geographical Indication) are typical of a certain production area that have been recognised by the European Union. PDO products must be produced, processed and prepared in a specific region using traditional production methods. The quality or characteristics of the product must be due essentially or exclusively to its place or origin, i.e., climate, the nature of the soil and local know-how.
