From a small olive oil mill to worldwide export of Extra Virgin, Organic Oil and all specialities from mediterranean tradition
From a small olive oil mill to worldwide export of Extra Virgin, Organic Oil and all specialities from mediterranean tradition.
The origins of Domenico Manca S.p.A. date back to the early 1900's when the Manca family owned and operated a small olive oil mill within the ancient walled town of Alghero.
The production of extra virgin olive oil was directed mainly to the local market with few sales made on the Italian mainland.
This was the situation until 1975, when the founder's grandson, Domenico Manca, made the decision to devote his work full time to the family business, firm in his belief in the superior quality of the company's products.
In the mid 80's Domenico Manca S.p.A. added other products to its traditional core business, olive oil.
These products included table olives in brine, olive paste, artichoke cream, stuffed sundried tomatoes in oil, cardoons and aubergines.
At the same time, the San Giuliano brand has been awarded a great number of prizes and significant mentions for its outstanding quality.
| Through further expansion, the company enlarged production capacity to keep pace with the increasing success enjoyed by San Giuliano oil on the regional market, for which it very soon took a lead position.
The San Giuliano product range moved closer and closer to their Mediterranean homeland, expanding into new products such as pesto, Cannonau wine vinegar, balsamic vinegar and, for the North American market, durum wheat pasta.
The company expanded the entire production chain: new olive groves were purchased along with new harvesting machines; a new oil mill was installed which, despite its modernity, retains the traditional flavor by using granite millstones.
The bottling line was modernized with machines allowing for the greatest possible flexibility in production to meet the requirements of a vast and cosmopolitan clientele.
Even the new multipurpose centre was designed and built using the latest sustainable building technology to guarantee maximum comfort for employees and minimum environmental impact.
San Giuliano offers also the possibility to experience an unique holiday in the green of our Residence in Alghero, to enjoy the quiet beauty of the places where our oils and specialities are produced.
