Affiliation / Why affiliating

With nearly 700 members and 7,5 million
certified bottles in 2012, in the last years
the Terra di Bari PDO Consortium has become
a landmark for Consumers as well as for people
operating in the Terra di Bari PDO
extra virgin olive oil production chain.

Today, producing an extraordinary oil, having perfect organoleptic properties, is not enough to reach consumers.
For this reason, the Consortium mission consists in informing, protecting and making Consumers
aware
through educational campaigns and food education plans, aimed at spreading knowledge
about the Terra di Bari olive oil production methods, origin and quality.

As a matter of fact, a Consumer who knows and understands the value of a specific territory certified productions
is able to appreciate and buy them consciously, thus fostering the selling of PDO certified oils and bringing benefits
to the Consortium members.
But it doesn’t stop there. The Consortium constantly takes care of its members by providing them with services
aimed at promoting PDO certification and productions as well as professional refresh,
by means of courses hold by field experts, in order to spread and share knowledge about the olive oil sector.
