Our GEO2 Extra Virgin Olive Oil is 100% Italian and guarantees the traceability of the product and raw materials.
The sustainability protocol was conceived as part of a community project with the contribution of the Region of Tuscany, RDP 2014-2020 (PIF year 2015).

Our environmental sustainability takes the form of a tangible commitment by the oil mill and its producers to develop strategies and actions aimed at the progressive reduction of CO2eq emissions over the entire production chain, also through increased use of renewable energy sources and the recycling of by-products.
The Val d’Orcia area is natural and rural in character, aspects which generally determine incomes for the local communities which are, on average, lower than in other areas of the Tuscany region. Reinvesting in the area in which our GEO2 is produced allows us to maintain and develop our local communities, creating constant benefits for the entire area. Investing locally also means valorising local production with social, environmental and territorial benefits.
SOCIAL AND TERRITORIAL
The Val d’Orcia area has distinct characteristics which have led to its listing as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. As part of this territorial system, it is fundamental to try and guarantee sustainable development from both a social and territorial point of view. The tangible commitment made by the oil mill and its producers is to promote and protect the territory and its landscape, as well as promote a culture of safety in activities of olive growing and oil production.
OLIVE GROWING AND OIL QUALITY
As well as being completely traceable, our GEO2 oil is a high quality Extra Virgin Olive Oil which is the result of an undertaking by the producers to identify agronomic techniques aimed at guaranteeing the sustainability and high quality of the olives produced, such as the processes adopted by the oil mill for crushing and bottling. The experience and skill of the oil mill staff guarantee the development of strategies and actions aimed at maintaining and, where possible, improving the sustainability and quality of the oil produced. Our Extra Virgin Olive Oil is also certified P.D.O., P.G.I. and organic.
The GEO2 sustainability protocol and its application is subject to annual checks by the DNV GL certification body (click here to download the declaration).
