Oli d'Italia 2022
Despite the consequences of climate change, Italy registered a 15% increase in oil production, with respect to 2020, approaching 2019 in terms of overall output. This year we decided to double our efforts, both when it comes to the Oli d’Italia guide, and in terms of supporting the world of extra virgin olive oil. We decided to start by bringing together all the key players, from growers to producers, from chefs to restaurant owners, into a single network. The result is the Gambero Rosso “Community Olio”, a place where people can stay up to date on the latest industry developments, but above all meet and share their needs, stories and ideas with the understanding that exchange at all levels is a key drivers of growth.
The best olive oils from Campania
This year Campania's olive oil output is close to 11,000 tons. It's a slight decline (around 11%) with respect to the previous year, mainly due to alternate bearing. In terms of drawing an overall picture, Campania is among the southern Italian regions where quality and quantity come together best, thanks in part to its many monovarietal oils and new producers aiming to stand out at national and international competitions.
