Since 2014, the SPO has activated an iOlive digital certification program. The idea came by chance to exploit new technologies used for vehicle traceability.
Today we are able to certify a plant by writing each step of the supply chain on a special database.
So in 2 years from the mother plant to the bottle we are able to deliver a certified plant with a digital certificate where in the future also the future olive grower will be able to write down the phases
of supply chain to produce a certified oil.
The system is based on radiolocation and the use of NFC chips placed on greenhouses, on seedlings, and in the future on certified extra virgin olive oil bottles.
