The entrepreneur Biagio Mataluni, President of Confindustria Benevento since 2012 and at the guidance of the Oleifici Mataluni since 1980, has been unanimously appointed Vice President of the Regional Council of Confindustria Campania.
The appointment, made official in Naples in the early afternoon, is an extraordinary achievement for the entire economic fabric of Benevento, who will thus have an important new landmark on the regional and national institutional tables.
The President Mataluni, in fact, is also part of the South National Commission of Confindustria, testimony of the commitment within the Sanniti and southern business environment as on the occasion of the high achievement resulting from the conversion of the Area of Crisis of Airola with the placement of 108 employees in redundancy payment and the identification of 43 companies selected by Invitalia and willing to invest in the Sannio. read more
Olio Dante has been present on the Italian tables for over a century, well earning its title of “Prince of Seasoning”. Particularly recommended for the preparation of sauces, and for the cooking of meat dishes, the Dante Extra Virgin Olive Oil is a perfect dressing on fish and vegetables, preserving all their original taste.
Ask your grandmothers or mothers that have jealously kept the popular 1980s Dante signed recipe book entitled "Oil tells itself. History, curiosities, culture and much more on a really unique food". A volume rich in information that, surely, is still to be found in many Italian kitchen drawers.
The recipe book, published by Beca, gives historical information and several recipes with colour illustrations and a very handy glossary of cooking terms. The first voucher and proof of purchase collections date back to the 1980s: prizes for the most loyal customers include the “flame pan" and the precious "kitchen bowls" exclusively hand-made pottery created by the Senese craftsmen. read more
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
