Our Origins

Even the ocean began with a single drop.

Certified Origins sprouted from humble beginnings, when a small collective of olive farmers in rural Italy joined hands to protect their land and livelihood. Their passion for producing fresh, authentic extra virgin olive oil led them to create a thriving community of family farms – bound by their passion for good food and a desire to provide delicious, nutritious EVOO to families everywhere.

Today, we've become a global presence, guided by our commitment to sustainable growth.

The values which first brought us together are still at the forefront of our business. In fact, Certified Origins is still cooperatively owned and managed – and that mindset carries through to all of our partnerships. Both our private label and branded products are ethically produced, handled with care, and meet the highest standards for freshness and authenticity — without sacrificing our commitment to excellent stewardship of the land, or the families it feeds.

We’re a strong, devoted community of individuals, working together to preserve our cultural heritage and protect the quality and purity of our food.

Our Principles

Quality

Our commitment to quality stands above all else. It’s what brought our community together – and what drives us. We’re fiercely devoted to providing our customers with the fresh, authentic flavors and dense nutrients present in high-quality natural foods. Now, and forever.

Community

Each member of our community is important. From growers and grocers, to friends and family – and everyone in between. We’re united by our dedication to pioneering change.

Our collective strength lies in sourcing and cultivating excellence worldwide. We actively seek partnerships with organizations and individuals who are genuinely passionate about food activism, pioneering innovation, preserving cultural heritage for future generations, and standing for positive change. Those who care about the environment, sustainable production, and transparency align well with our mission and goals.

Transparency

We think you should know where your food comes from – which is why we leverage cutting-edge technology to provide as much information as possible about our products. We’re even using a blockchain-based open ledger, to provide deeper insight into the food supply chain and increase traceability.

We believe in growing trust through transparency. And as we grow, we’ll continue to explore new ways of documenting and sharing the journey of your food, from grove to grocer.

Sustainability

Our parents and grandparents understood that the essential, unique flavors of our food arise from healthy soil. They taught us traditional methods of cultivation, which we use to nurture and protect the land. A commitment to conscious, sustainable growth is present in all of our efforts and partnerships. We view ourselves as stewards of the land, and take great pride in protecting it for future generations.

As a global team, we champion the rights of those who make sure there’s always good food on the table – so we can step into the future of food together.

Innovation

When it comes to innovation, Certified Origins is leading the way. Tasked with overcoming the challenges of counterfeiting and fraud within the food industry, we created Bellucci’s unique traceability app, which allows buyers to verify the authenticity of their extra virgin olive oil.

For years, we’ve provided insight into the source of our food, as well as access to information which helps consumers make smart and healthy choices. Now, we’re taking it even further, by applying new technology and innovative solutions to the challenges of our world. We’re even using a blockchain-based open ledger system to increase transparency within the food supply chain. That’s the future of food!

Our Future

We bring centuries of heritage knowledge to the table, to explore what works – and what hasn’t. Together, we’re creating a new take on healthy, authentic food – using modern techniques and technologies which allow us to preserve our natural, authentic origins, while spanning the cultural and geographic divides of today’s world.

We may have sprouted from a drop of delicious EVOO – but we’ve quickly grown into a vast sea of goodness. Whether you’re interested in collective partnership, private label products, or simply purchasing Certified Origins foods, we hope you’ll join us in cultivating a more delicious future.
