"We are honored to have received these prestigious awards," owner Antonia Isabella Perrone said. "Since our products can be found in the best department stores worldwide, we firmly believe that these awards will help us increase our brand awareness."
The producer behind the Masserie di Sant'Eramo brands added that despite Italy's poor harvest in 2020, quality was as high as ever.
"Despite last year's yields decreasing in Italy, the quality of our premium extra virgin olive oil remains high," Perrone said. "We have been able to produce several different extra virgin olive oils of exceptional quality, including organic and monovarietal, which have been awarded by worldwide award-bodies."
