The most important points regarding our ever evolving work can be summarized as follows: ORGANIC FARMING, ECO-SUSTAINABILITY, ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION OF THE TERRITORY, REDUCTION OF ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT
Our products derive exclusively from organic crops and production systems, which is another step in the direction of “healthy eating” together with maximum attention to the environment. The keywords that the Scollo company has always underlined are attention and respect. This means attention to and respect for the natural production cycle of the trees, agronomic phases, cultivation techniques concerning the olive groves, pressing techniques, care and respect for the environment and care and respect for the work of the employees. Our main goal has always been to offer our customers the best of our company’s products with a focus on local specialities.”Organic” is a choice which is not the result of a desire to be fashionable or of a radical attitude. It comes from awareness and the great desire for the most healthy and genuine product. MODICEO is the most concrete response to the desire for “natural and genuine.” What is organic farming? Organic farming differs from other types of farming in many respects. It is an agricultural system which seeks to provide the consumer with genuine fresh and tasty products which combine flavour and pureness produced with the maximum respect for the environment and for the physiological cycle of nature. In fact, organic farming avoids the use of synthetic pesticides, herbicides, chemical fertilizers, hormones, antibiotics or genetic manipulation. Organic farming favours renewable resources and recycling, returning to the soil the nutrients found In waste products. It respects the environment’s natural mechanisms for the control of diseases and pests and makes use of a series of techniques which contribute to the maintenance of ecosystems and reduce pollution. Organic farming is a production method which respects human and animal welfare and defends environmental and cultural biodiversity. It is an example of sustainable development aimed at protecting the environment and the territory and enhancing the quality of the products. MODICEO OIL is produced according to the BIO specifications and is certified by the ICEA, which is the first certification of the supply chain “from the farm to the table” which ensures the traceability of raw materials and finished products, ensuring product quality and consumer protection. The ICEA organic certification is synonymous with reliability and is a guarantee on both the home and international market. This certification is proof of our company’s commitment to aiming at true quality. The BIO ICEA certification is already an absolute guarantee, but in our continuing search for quality in olive oil we go beyond this with the early harvesting of the olives at the expense of yield but to the advantage of the organoleptic characteristics of the oil. We also reduce to 12-24 hours the interval between harvesting and pressing. Pressing is carried out by a cold process in the new mill using machinery made by Officine Meccaniche Toscane.
