An Italian history

Olio Dante’s history begins in Genoa in 1849, when Andrea - founder of the Costa family - begins to market and transport olive oil and fabrics from Sardinia to Liguria. In 1854 Giacomo Costa founds  the company "Giacomo Costa son of Andrea", specializing in the purchase of raw olive oil in Mediterranean countries in order to export it overseas with the Costa label.
In 1898 the first shipments are directed to North America, Argentina and Australia, countries in which the constant flow of Italian emigrants generates a demand for domestic food products. The need to quickly transport their products, leads Giacomo Costa first to use second hand cargo ships and then to build them directly, creating what will later become the fleet of Costa Cruises. Among the various Italian products, the most popular is oil, essential food for Italian cooking but not yet widespread in the Americas, where it is replaced by vegetable and animal fats like butter and margarine. When Eugenio, one of the sons of Giacomo Costa, sets on his first voyage to North America with the aim of consolidating a network of sales, he discovers something surprising: the Americans identify the name Costa more with the Portuguese than with Italians, and therefore considers appropriate to change the label as "the reminder to Italy must be easy and immediate". read more

No al semaforo rosso per l’olio extra vergine di oliva. L’Ue, infatti, ha bocciato l'etichetta a semaforo sugli alimenti, utilizzata in Gran Bretagna, e ha aperto una procedura di infrazione perché il sistema è ritenuto discriminatorio. Le etichette a “semaforo” hanno bollato come malsane alcune delle principali eccellenze dell’agroalimentare Made in Italy, insieme anche a 1.200 Dop e Igp europee, tra cui l’olio extra vergine di oliva. L’intento, secondo il Ministero della Salute britannico, era quello di contrastare l’obesità. read more
