A LONG LINE OF QUALITY
It was in a small village just east of Rome that the Mancini family began their olive business. It was not an unusual venture, as the village of Castel Madama had a number of families selling black table olives. But the Mancinis sought to combine tradition with the ever-growing technological advancements, and thus, set themselves apart. It was in 1989 that the brand Madama Oliva was born, as a merger between Mancini and other olive producers in the area, and became not only a leading name in freshly packed olives, but also became the first export company in Italy to Japan and the United States.
