EU Organic
The market for organic products is highly dependent on consumer confidence. For this reason, EU legislation has been developed in order to ensure consumers buying a product labeled as "organic", that it really is like that. The EU organic logo is only used if the product in question is produced in compliance with the requirements of Regulation (EEC) No 2092/1991 and its implementing regulations or Regulation (EEC) 834/2007 and the requirements established by the EU Regulation 271/2010

Mediterranean Institute of Certification
The method of organic farming is regulated by the laws of several states and agencies in the world. Production standards may vary from country to country and the company that wants to promote its products must be in possession of the appropriate conformity. The IMC certification for organic farming is recognized around the world. The application of the biological method communicates to the market the company's commitment to the environment and together with certifications, qualifies and accredits the company itself on the national and international market.

Protected Geographical Indication (PGI)
Certified oils (IGP) are subject to two levels of legislation, one concerning a strict control of the organs responsible for verifying the authenticity and quality of the oil, the other related to the verification of compliance with strict production regulations. This means that all operators in the industry are subject to strict annual checking by the certification body that, by applying the ministerial control plans, verifies the compliance of the entire chain of production to the requirements given in the specifications. Each consignment of certified oil before being placed on the market with the IGP must be subjected to chemical analysis and organoleptic analysis by a committee (panel) consisting of at least eight tasters registered in a special List. Organoleptic examinations must consider both the absence of defects (such as rancid, heating or winy), and the presence of typical positive attributes (fruity, bitter and pungent) defined in the specifications.

Consortium for the Protection of Extra Virgin Olive Oil from Tuscany (IGP)
The Consortium for Tuscan Extra Virgin Olive Oil IGP, officially established in 1997, has the task to protect and enhance the name for Tuscan extra virgin olive oil produced in our region. The olive tree is a symbol that best identifies Tuscany and its landscape. In order to guarantee and protect this heritage, in 1998 the European Union recognized the Tuscan extra virgin olive oil with Protected Geographical Indication according to a strict Production Regulations. In fact, it requires the performance of the entire production process, from the cultivation of olives, the extraction of oil up to their packaging, in the region of Tuscany. For the production of Tuscan IGP the typical Tuscan olive varieties must be used: the most common are Frantoio, Leccino and Moraiolo and others are specified in the Regulations. Choosing Tuscan extra virgin olive oil IGP means buying a product controlled at every step of its production, in compliance with the strict observance laid down in its Rules. Its chemical and organoleptic characteristics must therefore respond to specific parameters that characterize quality and uniqueness. Each bottle of Tuscan IGP is traceable. Just type www.oliotoscanoigp.it, select the traceability and enter the alphanumeric code printed on the label of the bottle and the amount in liters, to know who has cultivated olives, those who have pressed them and those who have bottled oil. The warranty is expressed through oil Toscano PGI full traceability that must be applied to the product. In fact, the number printed on the label on the bottle neck allows you to recognize the true extra virgin Tuscan IGP and follow the entire journey from the place of cultivation, the pressing through bottling, to purchase, ensuring then the clearest traceability. Simply enter the number of the mark on the website of the Consortium and the capacity of the package purchased to really discover all about its history. The Consortium is an organization recognized by the Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Forestry, for the protection of the name, thus potentially increasing its spectrum of activity with wider powers, ensuring its member companies and final consumers. Each bottle has its identity card. Consumers who buy a product protected by the PDO and PGI can be sure that it is a product with a specific geographical origin and with unmistakable characteristics that provide for the fame.
