These sweet olives, more commonly known as Castelvetrano olives, are grown in near the town of Castelvetrano in Trapani, western Sicily. A farming community, Castelvetrano is known primarily for its amazing olives and olive oil. The fruit that bears the name of the town is distinctive for its large size and striking bright green color. They are beloved by many for their buttery, fruity flavor and crisp, crunchy texture. Milder than other olives, they are versatile as an ingredient or snack.
Olives are one of the oldest products known to man, with a very long history, as witnessed by the many millenarian olive trees. Their production is among the largest in the world, mainly concentrated in the Mediterranean basin, where the climate is highly favorable to the growth of the plants. Italy is among the main exporters of table olives, and definitely Italian olives (such as Sicilian or Ligurian) possess unique organoleptic properties and a recognizable flavor, famous around the world. While 90% of the olives is grown for the production of olive oil, only the finest ones are used for table consumption. There are many types of olives, distinguished by their shape (rounded or oval), size (ranging from tiny and hard olives to the larger and meaty ones), color (from green-yellow to bright black), and, of course, taste. The latter also depends on the type of storage (for example, in brine, fermented or pasteurized).
The Italian table olives that Sensibus proposes (among them the Castelvetrano olives, the famous Nocellara del Belice olives, the Gaeta olives, the Taggiasche olives, the Cerignola olives, just to name a few) are made sweet and tasty by means of an ancient debittering process that preserves the characteristic green / black and brilliant color while allowing to get a higher quality product.
Our line of olives is not pasteurized and is ideal for those who are not satisfied by ordinary products. The secret of this line is right the lack of a pasteurization process, which allows the olives to hold their taste and freshness intact.
As to our pasteurized olive, the careful pasteurization process ensures that these products have a longer maturity without affecting the flavor.
The compliance and and meticulous monitoring of stringent hygiene and quality standards makes that the taste of our products is always at a higher level in transparent and hermetic packaging.
