It all started with Riccardo Scarpellini’s passion for high quality extra virgin olive oil, a passion that led FJT to have 7 official olive oil tasters among the staff.
Thanks to this team of professionals, FJT aims to educate clients on how to identify high-quality olive oils, to understand their benefits, health aspects and culinary applications, in order to transfer their acquired knowledge to final consumers for a more conscious choice.
This is made possible by FJT’s Olive Oil School, that offers a theoretical part, as well as guided visits to mills and olive groves, cooking lessons and pairing of the various cultivars in culinary preparations. A full immersion in a gastronomic culture whose hearth is the great Italian extra virgin olive oil!
All this is facilitated by Opera Olei https://www.operaolei.it/, a consortium that brings together six producers of extra virgin olive oils among the best in Italy, whose president is Riccardo Scarpellini. The Opera Olei box set, that contains six different monocultivar oils, is in fact a perfect tool to learn how oils have different intensities, very specific characteristics and distinct personalities.
It’s also important to mention the partnership with Flos Olei by Marco Oreggia https://www.flosolei.com/, the prestigious guide to the best extra virgin olive oils in the world, which allows olive oils and olive oil producers to reach visibility in the international scenario.
