Based on current legislation, Olio di Roma PGI can be marketed in containers not exceeding 5 litres, sealed and provided with a label. The label must bear the wording "Olio di Roma PGI" extra virgin olive oil that must be clearly legible and in indelible characters. The use of indications referring to companies, names, private brands and consortia is permitted, provided that they do not mislead the consumer. On the label it is possible to use the wording "monovarietal" followed by the name of the cultivar used among those permitted. It is also mandatory to indicate the year of production of the olives used to obtain the oil.
The traceability of Olio di Roma PGI is guaranteed by the presence in the packaging of a guarantee mark containing a unique alphanumeric code for each single bottle. In this way it is possible to make the production process of the entire supply chain transparent, from field to milling and packing.
The Digital Passport is a new guarantee system allowing the protection of Italian food productions and providing for the entry of certified producers into the Trust Your Food® system, an App created by the Istituto Poligrafico e Zecca dello Stato that allows consumers to type, scan or dictate the alphanumeric code on the label getting in real time the authenticity and traceability of data on every single pack.
For companies that are interested in requesting the guarantee marks, it is necessary to send a PEC to the Consortium address: email@example.com
The request must be submitted at least 15 days before use.
