Olive Oil in the Cuisine (Chianti project)

The project "Extra virgin olive oil for local school lunch" is in its fourth year of implementation and it has been the realization of the first action on the short chain food system. The initiative provides the young audience with the knowledge of the taste of the oils produced locally. The project collaborates with the Crushers Social Cooperative for the products to be easily available, in order to support the agricultural economy of the greater number of producers.
To optimize the public resources and use the oil of the previous year up, the product offering is diversified by use: the extra virgin olive oil of the current year is used on raw food, meanwhile the oil of the previous year for cooking.
In both cases the oil samples are analyzed from the chemical and organoleptic profile.
Starting on the next harvest, the tables will only be provided with extra virgin olive oil certified PGI or DOP Terre di Siena.
The goal is to involve all municipalities in the province in the next three years
