Our premises since 1921
Here is our mill.
It is located in via Nazionale 28, Pontedassio, 5 km north of Imperia.
The photo was taken at dusk: the work of the mill takes place, above all, in the evening and (unfortunately for us) at night: the olives harvested during the day arrive at the mill in the late afternoon and we try to mill all of them that same evening.
In the Valleys of Imperia
Our agricultural business
Another important part of our company is made up of “Sant’Andrea”, our agricultural company.
It manages several olive groves located in the hinterland of Imperia: both in the Oneglia Valley (the so-called Impero Valley) and the Porto Maurizio Valleys, as well as behind Diano Marina.
The olive groves located at different altitudes and characterized by different exposures. In total there are about 2000 olive trees. All of the Taggiasca variety.
Our agricultural company is the main supplier of olives to our mill.
