The quality of the Made In Italy, a passion for their territory and for its local traditions, an openness to the world and their hospitality make Frantoio Bonamini one of the symbolic examples od the unity between history and evolution.
Driven by a rooted love story for the product and their territory, Giancarlo and Sabrina Bonamini run the historical olive-mill with great know how. The olive-mill claims almost 60 years of challenges and today it counts 5.200 olive trees cultivated in 21 hectares, reaching a production of 270.000 bottles a year, distributed in Italy and abroad.

The production of the P.D.O. and Organic oils and the exclusive Santa Giustina and San Felice oils, like the related products such as the flavored oils, the vegetables pickled in oil and the cosmetic line are all found on the hills facing the Val d'Illasi valleys, one of the most important district at national level with regards to the productiin of olive oil.

It is a young and dynamic establishment with a strong gumption for experimentation and constant research on a path which smells of bygone days and maintains a respectful bond to traditions and the local environment. A philosophy which has made this brand one of the most known and prized in the oil market and in the world and that continues to be a strong point of this family.

But there's more...

Once olive oil has been produced, the waste instead of becoming a cost to be disposed of, is turned into a real resource. Frantoio Bonamini is well aware of this and for some time now it has been paying particular attention to recycling and to the environment.

In fact, more than ten years ago now, it launched a recovery and recycling plan for the by-products of olive processing; in this particular case, once the oil has been extracted, all the other components are recycled, reused and above all valorised.
For example, the pits of the olives are used as heating source for the entire structure and the rest of the parts, such as pulp, peel and water, are used for the production of biomass.

To help this venture, Frantoio Bonamini has invested in a “Frantoio 4.0” with the aim of maintaining a higher product quality while eliminating the waste of raw materials. This is possible thanks to new technologies that allow machinery to have its own "voice", paying particular attention to all production data, which will then be processed to offer useful information for improving and optimizing business processes.

Furthermore, from 2022 and for the next three years Frantoio Bonamini will be part of the “Oli.va.re” project (Italian acronym of Olives, Valorisation, Recovery) and in collaboration with the University of Padua, especially with the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences, it thought of giving a value to these by-products and no longer defining them as waste, recovering interesting active ingredients both from a cosmetic point of view but above all from a pharmaceutical and health point of view. The two parties will therefore engage in the creation of supplements available both for the animal world and for mankind, with only the reuse of the extra components of the processed olives.
