TRADITION, ART AND PASSION ARE OUR QUALITIES WHICH WE HAVE PASSED DOWN TO OUR CLIENTS FOR YEARS
A family history, which is written in the beautiful Umbrian valleys
The Suatoni Oil Mill has 70 years of history, a history written by the Suatoni family, which continues to innovate in the name of tradition and quality. In the oil mill - located in Amelia, in the province of Terni, in sight of the Umbrian valleys - a high-quality extra virgin olive oil is produced, cold-extracted from different olive varieties (Frantoio, Pendolino, Leccino, Moraiolo and Rajo). These olives are gathered in the olive groves of the Suatoni family, in the olive groves grown on the territory, strictly hand-picked and pressed with the Alfa Laval continuous cycle system.
Complete control of the production chain, organic EVOO
The Suatoni family olive farm has complete control of the production chain, and it is one of the reasons why it is possible to have such good EVOO at an equally good price. In fact, the company has its own cultivations, its own olive groves, cultivated with organic methods (certified organic since 1995). Currently the company has 6,000 olive trees located in three plots of 10 km apart. The fruit is rigorously harvested by hand, and production and bottling is carried out in establishments which are always our own
Oil-based cosmetic products and guided tours by appointment
In addition to a fantastic extra virgin olive oil, today the company offers customers cosmetic products based on olive oil, which offer the many beneficial properties of oil for our skin and our beauty. In addition to this, the Suatoni Family will be happy to welcome you for visits and tastings. For individuals and groups, it is possible to organise - upon reservation - guided tours and sensorial tastings. After having witnessed the production and packaging phases, a tasting of bruschetta and typical Umbrian products will be set up. The visits can be held, in addition to Italian, in English and French.
A FAMILY OIL MILL, A PASSION WHICH IS RENEWED OVER GENERATIONS
The Suatoni family
Suatoni Franco laid the foundations of the company, its birth and its development. It started after the end of the war: in addition to working in an oil mill in the area, he sold his own oil and that of many friends outside the region, even reaching the nearby capital. In 1967 Vincenzo, the son of the founder, created, an olive press for the pressing of olives, both his own and of many olive growers in the area, together with three partners. In 1990 Vincenzo and his wife Anna decided to set up a new pressure oil mill in the current company, then in 1998 they turned it into a modern, continuous cycle mill. Today, in addition to Vincenzo and Anna, their son Francesco and his wife Giuditta work in the family business; they continue the tradition, also renewing the business, keeping the initial spirit constant, always with the same passion for extra virgin olive oil and for quality.
For three generations the Suatoni family has been the protagonist, with its oil mill, of a story which is written day by day. A story of passion and dedication for the cultivation of the olive tree and its precious fruit, and for the production of EVOO, high-quality extra virgin olive oil, cold-pressed at our own oil mill.
Today, as in the past, without compromise, with the same passion as always, the company invests, moving from the old systems in response to pressures to reach the current ones in a continuous cycle. Innovative measures have been introduced in the extraction process, to enhance the fragrance of the oil produced and to have the maximum expression of a real oil.
The family company manages to obtain this precious oil because it has complete control of the production chain: it cultivates its own olive groves, grinds olives in its own mill and bottles the oil in its own plant, guaranteeing, in addition to quality, an excellent value for money.
