Producer: Olio Calvi
Product: Italian chilli pepper in olive oil
Olio Calvi was founded in 1921 by Giuseppe and Paolo Calvi upon their return from the first world war. Born from olive growers in the Liguria region of northern Italy, the brothers came in to the business with a wealth of knowledge. What started as a company that only sold locally and to the surrounding regions of Piemonte and Lombardy soon grew in to a successful international export business. Fuelled by the emigrant Italians living in the Americas desire for oil, the company took to exporting extra virgin olive oil in cans.
Today Olio Calvi is a thriving business run by the 3rd generation of the Calvi family creating high quality, quintessentially Italian, gourmet products.
