Arkè

Arkè is a family company that has been producing high quality extra virgin olive oil and flavoured olive oils for over three generations. In the heart of Sicily (at 600 meters above sea level, in an area which has always been suitable and devoted to growing olives), our farm produces high quality extra virgin olive oils typical of varieties such as Moresca and Nocellara. They are carefully processed by our own mill and our family manages personally every production phase. (Harvest, receipt of olives, crushing by our company's mill, conservation in stainless steel tanks topped with nitrogen inert gas minimizing oxidation and bottling implementing the Product Tracking and Traceability System for a quality control feature).
For over three generations the passion for olive oil production has characterized our farm, which devotedly searches out and selects the best olives to produce an extraordinary quality olive oil. Loam soils, sandy soils and chalky soils have been the inspiration for the creation of our 4 extra virgin olive olis: Arkè IGP, Arkè Bio, Arkè and Kora.

The story of an experience that ranges from citrus notes of "gardens" of lemons to those spicy of hot pepper, from flowering almond trees up to aromatic taste of our rosemary.
