“The first and last name in olive oil since 1867”

In 1867, in the small Italian town of Lucca, Tuscany a young man named Filippo Berio set out to follow his passion for making Olive Oil. It was here that he learned his craft and began producing his own signature olive oil. Filippo Berio is still based in Lucca, the premier brand of Salov. Sophisticated modern equipment is now used in production and quality control and these sit alongside traditional practices. For example, every batch of Olive Oil is still personally tasted by a family member before being approved for dispatch. Today Salov has operations around the globe and is one of Italy’s largest food exporters. Yet, despite this tremendous international reputation, Filippo Berio remains a family-owned business.
