It was our olive oil that made the Bertolli name famous around the world, and our name is as rich in tradition and history today as our foods are rich in flavour.
Our story started in 1865 in Tuscany. Francesco and Caterina Bertolli sold the family’s olive oil from a shop underneath the family home in the beautiful little town of Lucca. Since then, Bertolli has grown to become an international brand, producing a wide variety of authentic Italian foods – including spreads and traditional pasta sauces.
Despite how much we’ve grown, everything we do at Bertolli is still anchored in the pleasures and principles of Italian cuisine. We still use our finest ingredients, combine them with specially selected olive oil, and produce foods that are deceptively simple and totally delicious.
We believe that the way you cook and eat should be at the heart of how you live your life. Based on traditional recipes that celebrate ripe, sun-touched flavours,wherever you are in the world, you can always rely on Bertolli’s authentic Mediterranean foods and bring a little taste of Italian culture into your home.
