Bono

Bonolio was established in 1934 by Vincenzo Bono, a dedicated gentleman who recognized the importance of EVOO. The company was then passed down to his four children who today lead the company. Michele, Damiano, Giuseppe, and Salvatore have taken to heart their father’s teaching, and today have created the largest Italian Organic and Sicilian Certified EVOO company in all of Italy and the world.Today, Bonolio olive oil factory now includes the biggest oil mill in Sicily, with an olive oil production capacity of 5 tons per hour distributed on four production lines, four bottle/can machine lines of a capacity of 24,000 bottles per hour and an olive oil stock capacity of over 5,000 tons. This while all concentrating on quality.

In addition to producing award-winning EVOOs, Bono uses the island’s world-famous citrus fruits to create simply mouthwatering organic maramalades. No where else in the world can you find an abundance of multiple varietals of blood oranges, lemons, and oranges as you can in Sicily. The climate in Sicily provides for the perfect growth and cultivation of citrus fruits.
