Comptoir di lodo
Upstream Since 1991

Our history in the world of olive cultivation has, up to now, narrated the evolution in the production of undisputedly high-quality extra virgin olive oils, placing and focusing attention on the selection and promotion of the best oils at the international level since 1991.
In 2020, LODO came to life, where respect, territorial and promotional enhancement of realities and products of the highest quality become part of the world of excellence in the raw materials of high-end professional contexts such as haute cuisine, art, photography, and design.
 
Today, we consider it important and necessary to qualify and redefine the concept of DISTINCTION, but above all, the boundaries of INDEPENDENCE—whether it be of a product, a company, or a choice.
 
LAUDABLE INDEPENDENCE

A “space” where professionals, whether they are evoo producers, chefs or innovation stylists, custodians of traditions, and perpetual idealists, can disseminate the expression of their work and their thoughts unconditionally, with absolute respect for ethical, moral principles, and professional standards.

A new space that gathers the poetry, sacrifice, and utmost quality of authorial professional realities.

Proclamation of Laudable Independence

In an era where everything is stylized and endlessly praised, where individuals are morbidly bombarded by continuous conflicting and harmful impulses, we take up a lance made of feathers, leaves, and flowers to create the sound of independence—the Laudable Independence.

We respect and support every person, entity, or association in self-determination, standing by their side to help them achieve their goals.
