The 46th parallel marks the northernmost area with an olive-growing tradition in the world – the northern Lake Garda area in Trentino.

In 2007, Agraria Riva del Garda began working towards organic production,beginning with the oil mill and several olive-grower partners motivated by their own ideals. Frantoio di Riva obtained organic certification in 2008 and the first olive orchards completed the conversion process in 2010. That same year, the first organic olive oil was produced. Organic olive cultivation is aided by the unique climate conditions that hinder the development of the main olive diseases. In addition, the orchards make widespread use of organic insect control methods, like traps for the olive fruit fly, the insect pest that olive growers fear most.

- people with food intolerances and allergies;
- people who make organic food a part of a lifestyle that respects the environment.
It is an excellent ingredient in Mediterranean cuisine due to its ability to enhance even the most delicate foods, from raw vegetables to fish dishes, without overwhelming their flavour. The recommended daily intake is between two and three tablespoons, depending on weight and level of physical activity, to be consumed during main meals. Athletes and people following specific diets may find it necessary to adjust this amount.
