The column #Approved written by AVPN – Associazione Verace Pizza Napoletana - gives voice to all the official suppliers recognized by the association. This time, Olitalia has been in the limelight. A compelling interview published on the Facebook page of the association illustrates extensively the multiple facets of the collaboration with Olitalia. One of the fruits borne by their collaboration is, among others, the creation of Pizzolivm, an extra virgin olive oil which was specially designed to match perfectly pizza.
The best cultivars from the Mediterranean area were selected by some of the most world-renowned oil tasters together with the pizza chefs of Associazione Verace Pizza Napoletana. Then, Olitalia team completed the development of Pizzolivm, and tested it directly on pizza to define the best matching sensory profile.
Pizzolivm is not the only focus of the AVPN column. The founding philosophy of Olitalia is also illustrated: looking for chances to share ideas and collaborate with professionals, a precious hotbed of information and insights about the market demands.
Part of the column also analyses the possible future of authentic Neapolitan pizza and how Olitalia is going to approach this Italian culinary icon in the name of sharing and collaboration, which have been at the basis of their historical relationship.
