Filippo Berio Olive Oil

Filippo Berio, dressing your dishes in olive oil all year round…

Italian Christmas gifts

Italian Christmas gifts



Popular olive oil company Filippo Berio has launched a new stylish tin just in time for those early Christmas shoppers. This year’s tin features “The Lady of Viareggio” from one of Italy’s most stylish, Tuscan resorts and home to Filippo Berio – and echoes the design work of classic packaging, with an antiqued, collectable look. In fact, it imitates the first oils sold by Filippo Berio in the 1860s, which were placed in tins to protect the olive oil from sunlight and to preserve its flavour. We can imagine these handsome objects sitting pretty on a kitchen worktop and think it’s a great option for those hard-to-buy-for food lovers. Plus, you get the rich taste of a top-quality extra virgin olive oil that can be used in a myriad of ways over the festive season – from dressing a salad and glazing vegetables and meats, to dipping, basting and marinating. Let’s face it, we are always going to need a good olive oil in the kitchen – so it might as well look attractive! The special edition tins are available in supermarkets across the UK for £7.49.
