Salov-Berio SINCE 1867

The story of the company began in 1867 in Lucca, when the young Filippo Berio began crafting olive oils worthy of his family and friends. Season by season, his fame grew and, before long, he was hailed as Italy’s premier olive oil connoisseur. Today, Filippo Berio Olive Oil is reknown worldwide for its outstanding quality and flavor, not just in Filippo’s home town of Lucca, but around the world. Its unique flavor, versatility and important health benefits have ensured its lasting popularity through the years.

In the beginning

The late 1800s saw thousands of Italians emigrating across the world. Already acclaimed in Italy, Filippo Berio recognised this new opportunity and set sail for America, securing orders from scores of Italian importers, hoteliers, retailers and restaurateurs – the foundation of Filippo Berio’s worldwide reputation. Filippo Berio died in 1919 but shortly before, a new partnership saw his friend, Dino Fontana, establish the Salov Group Olive Oil Company. Over the ensuing years, the Salov Group expanded rapidly with the Filippo Berio brand becoming famous in many more countries. To this day, as the keepers of Filippo Berio’s legacy, the Fontana family and Salov Group continue to honour his founding

passion, artistry and commitment to excellence by creating delicious olive oils for demanding cooks across the world.

Our guarantee of quality.

Like wine, olive oil is affected by the soil, the climate, the variety of the fruit, harvesting methods and the production process. Filippo Berio olive oil is renowned for its consistent quality and the stringent controls applied at every stage of the growing and production process; from sourcing olives, through harvesting, pressing, blending and bottling the final product. The Salov Group network operates across the Mediterranean where stringent olive oil sourcing criteria ensure quality standards of consistent excellence. We’ve worked with many of our growers for many decades so our business relationships are based on long-term trust and mutual respect.
