The Lucini Italia Company strongly believes that great tasting food comes from high-quality ingredients. Their mission is to create Italian inspired, authentic, and handcrafted gourmet foods using 100% natural ingredients. Lucini Italia works with small regional farmers, renowned chefs, health and wellness experts to provide customers with a large selection of ingredients and gourmet recipes. The most celebrated and known Lucini Italia products include the organic award-winning extra virgin olive oils, vinegars, and artisan vinaigrettes. According to the product site, Lucini Italia’s extra virgin olive oils are made from hand-picked 100% organic Tuscan olives pressed within 24 hours of harvest. A product of sustainable agriculture, the olives are harvested by hand and crushed soon after to capture the maximum freshness of the olive fruit and to reap the health benefits. All of the products are bottled in recyclable packaging. Two Lucini products were recently honored in Prevention Magazine and named “Eat Clean in 2013” best packaged foods. Lucini Italia likes to give back by supporting Common Threads. Common Threads’ mission is to educate children on the importance of nutrition and physical well-being, and to foster an appreciation of cultural diversity through cooking. By providing hands-on cooking classes for many low-income children around the world, Common Threads works to prevent childhood obesity, as well as showing children how to cook wholesome and affordable meals. Lucini Italia product prices vary. Most will be under $50. Visit their official website for more information or search for their products in a store near you.
