OLEIFICIO SOCIALE di FOLIGNO was founded in the middle of the Seventies to combine the production of several small growers in the area who passionately followed centuries old traditions. During recent years using modern techniques and fully respecting tradition, a research process of absolute excellence was launched.
This was how the brand IL CASTELLO was born - to publicize the qualities and benefits of extra virgin olive oil all over the world. Our range of oil was completed with the arrival of DOP and DOP – BIO UMBRIA ASSISI HILLS – SPOLETO, obtained from biological agriculture olives rigorously selected from the moraiolo, frantoio, leccino varieties, originating in the surrounding hills and characterizing the landscape around the Saint Heraclius castle.
