IMPORTANT NOTICE FOR SHIPMENT OF TINS: Fluctuations in temperature and/or air pressure during transportation may cause indentation of the tin packaging due to expansion and contraction of the oil inside. This is more likely to occur in warmer and colder months during which approximately 5% of tin shipments are affected. Indentations of the tin packaging will not affect the quality of the oil inside.

PRODUCER PROFILE:

Frantoi Cutrera

For generations the Cutrera family has been dedicating their lives to the cultivation of olive trees and olive oil production, a profession carried on for decades with passion and love that binds the family to its land. The company's origins date back more than a century ago to 1906 when the Cutrera family first began to cultivate and care for their olive trees in Chiaramonte Gulfi, a small town in south-eastern Sicily. In 1979, Giovanni Cutrera, the head of the family, founded their very first mill the help of his wife, Mary. Over the years Giovanni‰'s children, Maria, Giusy and Salvatore joined their Dad on his farm, and in 1999, decided to open a second mill. The Cutrera family pays diligent attention to each stage of olive oil production: harvesting the olives by hand to minimize damage, transporting the olives to the mill within 6 hours and cold-extracting the oil with scrupulous attention. By maintaining a balance between tradition and innovation, Frantoi Cutrera continues the legacy that the farm's members have been putting into practice for over a century.
