Bertolli believes that the way you cook and eat should be at the heart of how you live your life. The Mediterranean lifestyle is about enjoying food along with friends and family – and appreciating the simple things life has to offer.
Our authentic Mediterranean foods are an easy way to bring a little taste of Italian culture into your home. Pasta, bruschetta and plenty of salads and vegetables are central to the Italian way of eating and Mediterranean diet. Wherever you are in the world, Bertolli pasta sauces and olive oil spreads bring you closer to the Italian way of life.
Olive oil is what has made the Bertolli name famous around the world and we choose only the finest olives for our recipes. And just like healthy Mediterranean olive oil, our spread contains unsaturated fat – the type we’re advised to eat more of. It’s lower in fat and calories, with a higher percentage of unsaturated fat than butter or regular margarine.
Making incredible olive oil since 1865
In 1865 in Tuscany, Francesco and Caterina Bertolli sold the family’s olive oil from a shop underneath the family home in the beautiful little town of Lucca. In the 1890s, Francesco’s five sons travelled abroad to the USA, Australia, Brazil, Argentina and Africa, where they brought the Bertolli name to the world’s attention.
And now our passion and gusto have made Bertolli into an international brand. Our authentic Italian foods now include healthy olive oil spreads and traditional pasta sauces.
We aim to bring a taste of the Mediterranean lifestyle to people around the world, putting the same gusto into every product today as we have for nearly 150 years.
Just taste our olive oil spreads and foods to understand how passion makes perfect.
