A 2015 to be framed: ROMINA Salvadori is RADIANT. ALL PARAMETERS ARE CLOSE TO PERFECTION. NOW BEGINS THE HARD WORK OF CRUSHING, MA with lots SATISFACTION
2015 for olive oil has had a good performance? I would say yes, so far everything a producer of olives has he hoped occurred. Spring was rainy and the soil has good doses of stored water reserves for the summer heat. The months of July and August were very hot, but mainly bright. The plants did not suffer thanks to the water reserves of the soil and the light brought perfectly ripe olives. The September was milder temperatures especially during the night, so that the maturation has progressed in a balanced manner and aromas have developed to perfection.
There have been attacks of olive fruit fly? This year we were able to sleep soundly. The fly does not manifested itself in small quantities, in narrow areas and interventions with natural products have been more than enough to clear the problem. Almost all of the olives is in perfect health, full of flavors and antioxidants such as oleuropein, which, as you know, is a true elixir of life.
You still resorted to chemistry? No products of synthesis. We are working to pass under organic and few actions we have carried out with natural products absolutely not harmful.
How do you see the harvest in terms of quantity and quality? We expect a good result in the quantity produced but above all we rely on absolute quality excellence. Now is the time of the hard work of the harvest and the pressing of the olives. Hard work, because to get a high quality product we should be quick and timely processing. Run and run! In the morning we collect and immediately proceed with the pressing and by the evening the oil is already in a protected environment in our thermo-conditioned tanks, out of contact with light and oxygen. And since the optimal period of maturation is short, we must be able to work large daily amounts, their energy.
So this year be able to meet a greater number of customers. But prices? The amount is expected to be substantial and will enable us to satisfy the huge demand for high quality product. Simultaneously you will not have to significantly increase the price. If there is one thing that our marketing department condemn us we are to have prices still far below what the high quality of our oils could afford.
