Farchioni Olii is in the heart of Umbria, in Gualdo Cattaneo (Perugia province), less than a kilometre from its original site in Giano dell’Umbria, where traditional soft wheat flour has been made for centuries.
The new facility is extremely innovative in terms of technology. It has a very low environmental impact and is harmoniously integrated into this part of central Umbria. The site has an overall surface area of 50,000 m2, of which 30,000 m2 covered (the oil-mill building). It has a total storage capacity of 10,000 tonnes (metric tons) of extra virgin olive oil.
Each of the six bottling lines can turn out up to 70,000,000 units a year. The new production facility combines technological innovation with the finest traditions of Umbria olive oil making. Farchioni Olii currently produces over 40 different types of olive oil, all of them of high quality and authenticity.
The quality of the production processes is assured by a scrupulously implemented quality control system and automated production.
