You will also support an innovative startup in which we strongly believe: Adopt Me Italy .
Adopt me Italy is an innovative start-up winner of the pin tender (innovative Pugliesi) of the Puglia Region , created by Antonio Vaccariello and Lucia Delvecchio , two young Apulian boys in love with their territory and sons of agricultural producers.
We met them in Turin , during an anti-waste event called Make it Tasty and we fell in love with their project.
The goal of their project is as follows:
- bring the consumer closer to the producer
- support small producers and help promote their products
save olive trees from abandonment and help reduce CO2 emissions
- to bring consumers who have adopted olive trees to come to Puglia, letting them know and visit the farms that collaborate in the Adopt Me Italy project
is the fruit of a promise among the university benches. Two friends have thus decided to bet on their passions; hence the idea of using the centuries-old Murgese olives that Stefanopaolo Tarricone inherited from his family to produce an oil that followed a rigid production process, developed by Aurora, who deepened this knowledge at the Polytechnic and the University of Bari studies.
Extracted mainly from Coratine olives (90%) harvested from the plant
and transformed within 24
hours, the Tarricone Extra Virgin Olive Oil
is a product with very low acidity, rich in polyphenols and with an unmistakable bitter, slightly spicy flavour; ideal condiment for legume soups, braised meats or simply to be enjoyed on carpaccio or toasted bread.
Why a 5 liter pack?
Because it preserves perfumes, taste and nutraceutical properties down to the last drop
Extra virgin olive oil should be kept away from sources of humidity, heat and light
. Once the package is opened, we advise you to fill a small dark bottle to use in your daily preparations. He always preferred opaque or dark containers, cupboards closed with non-transparent doors and all dark, cool places away from aromatic contaminations.
Store the pack of extra virgin olive oil in a cool, dry place
. Keep your oil away from heat sources, possibly in environments with not excessive temperature ranges
. An optimal temperature for storing oil is between 14° and 18°
