Alphanumeric code

Article 1 of the Decree of 10 October 2007 of the Department of Agriculture, Food and Forestry foresees the obligation to specify on the label of the extra virgin and virgin olive oil not only the origin of the olives, but also the place where the mill, in which the olives were grinded, is located.

This is an important measure for the "Made in Italy" which grants the traceability of the origin of the olive oil thus protecting consumers and helping stop fraud and counterfeiting.

Those firms who deal with storage and packaging of the olive oil must be provided with a code for the regional identification, an alphanumerical identification that shows the abbreviation of the province of location and a sequence number that is assigned according to the chronological order of grant of the code. The Region has established procedures and forms needed for the recognition of the oil mills through resolution no. 584 of 30 May 2008.

Compulsory and essential for packing firms is the registry Load-Unload, too (Executive Decree of February 5, 2008). It is previously endorsed by the ICQ (Central Inspectorate for the Quality Control of the Agricultural and food products) which is responsible for the territory; it must be drafted for each factory and warehouse and you have to write down each type of incoming or outgoing oil, movements, origins and destinations.
