Frantoi Cutrera, the success factors of Extra Virgin olive oil

Frantoi Cutrera is a family owned company, it covers about 50 hectares in the area of Chiaramonte Gulfi in the province of Ragusa. For generations Cutrera Family is devoted to the olive trees cultivation, a business carried on over the decades with passion and love.

Giovanni, the head of the family, founded the first mill in 1979, Since 2000, the Frantoi Cutrera has been managed by their children: Maria, Giuseppina and Salvatore along with their respective spouses; everyone within the company carries out his allotted duties with great care and passion. The Frantoi Cutrera currently has two production plants with three Pieralisi extraction lines, an oil storage wharehouse and a bottling plant installed in 2011.

As Sebastiano Salaria, the company's marketing manager, explaines “The first strength of Frantoi Cutrera is right in secular olive trees south-facing, on a hilly territory. The olive trees are in their natural habitat where they thrive for centuries. The olives are harvested by hand and brought to the mill and processed the same day. Equally important are the three Pieralisi extraction lines, two of which run under two phases and the third under three phases, temperature is strictly controlled in all. The three lines are different in the method of extraction, but also in the method of kneading and this factor allows a great versatility of the plants adapting the technicalities of extraction to the variety and grade of maturity of the olives. All operations are carefully followed step by step and this allows to obtain an oil of high quality, unmistakable intense fruity, bitter and spicy balanced in the mouth…”

The long relationship between Frantoi Cutrera and Pieralisi has led to a winning partnership, on one side Pieralisi continuously provides the latest technological innovations, on the other Frantoi Cutrera constantly gives feedback and ideas that can lead to an improvement in extraction techniques. “Partnership - continues Sebastiano - that has led the Frantoi Cutrera and its customers oils to obtain a large number of awards, so that it can be said that through the oils produced by Pieralisi plants installed at Frantoi Cutrera, the company can boast of being one of the most awarded to the world”.
