Our Olives and their health benefits


Cerignola olives have an elongated ellipsoidal shape, are well known for their thickness, beauty, volume and consistency of the pulp, resistance to handling and conservation; they are mainly intended for processing as green olives, but processing as black olives is increasing more and more, given the strong demand from consumers. The olives must be harvested directly from the trees, under which sheets are placed to prevent the fruits from falling to the ground.

Thanks to the current conservation methods deriving from modern technologies, it is possible to safeguard the organoleptic characteristics of traditional food while guaranteeing high hygienic-sanitary guarantees.

The consumption of olives, as well as extra virgin olive oil, brings numerous health benefits. In particular, the presence of antioxidants and "good" fats gives the olives useful properties to support the health of the cardiovascular system and reduce the damage caused by free radicals. The olive therefore has its peculiarities not only from a food point of view but also from a medical point of view; in fact, thanks to the presence of monounsaturated fatty acids, it is believed to have an important role in preventing the onset of arteriosclerotic phenomena.


Today the PDO olive "La Bella della Daunia" Bella di Cerignola variety fully represents one of the typical products

of the Mediterranean diet. The taste is full and savory and they are appreciated even when they come

eaten alone, not accompanied by wines or dishes.
