In Canino(Viterbo) you will find the OLEIFICIO SOCIALE COOPERATIVO DI CANINO where the extra virgin-oil is producted
directly from the producer to the consumer.
The OSCC Cooperative was set up in 1965 by a group of local oil producers and now has over 1200 members with in excess of 260,000 olive trees growing on roughly 3,350 hectares in the local area.
The olives are protected against parasites thanks to integrated pest management treatment (IPM), harvested in October-December and pressed in the cooperative’s high-tech plant with daily output of 3.45 tons. Certification: D.O.P. Canino (1263/96/EC).
Canino is a mainly agricultural town in a pollution-free area, of great ecological and natural beauty.
Every year the locals celebrate the olive harvest in early December with stands offering you the chance to taste the extra-virgin oil of Canino. Just to know that The OSCC opens its doors for guided visits!
