About The Tuscan Laudemio Consortium

In 1986 a group of olive growers in the heart of Tuscany formed a consortium with the intention to identify and transform into a production standard the most rational criteria for carrying out the various phases of cultivation as well as the harvesting of the olive fruit and the extration of its oil. Subsequently, all participating growers agreed to adhere to precise production standards for their oil production in order to be part of the exclusive club. The consortium chose to call itself 'Laudemio,' an old term used in the Middle Ages in reference to the part of the harvest that was due to the feudal lord. In a broader sense, the term indicates the selected or choice part of total production.
