Our sourcing team directly and continuously monitors the main production and the export markets to guarantee our customers the quality and the number of olive oils with the most coil competitive prices. The identity of each extra virgin olive oil originates from the blending process used. This is the most important and delicate phase, certainly the one that requires the highest degree of sensitivity in terms of taste, professionalism and experience.
The composition of the Blend makes it possible to obtain a product that is ready for the bottle and that has the chemical and organoleptic characteristics demanded by the client. Quality is the cornerstone of Fiorentini Firenze philosophy.
We proudly invest in Quality testing laboratories and test panels in order to obtain the most important international certification.
The CYCLE OF PRODUCTION is composed by the most modern equipment for bottling and packaging and by 5 bottling lines with an average capacity of 10.000 bottles per hour. With this kind of equipment we work hard to get to know our customers and to satisfy them according to their needs and preferences which are influenced by the different markets and segments. To this purpose, we pioneer and develop quality packaging, which is often created specifically to meet the customers’ preferences and requirements with endless options in terms of materials, formats, capsules and labeling.
