Our Story

Basso Oil, since 1904 Fedele nel Gusto

“Our story has deep roots,
a passion carried out with loyalty and dedication for five generations”

Inside every drop of our oil there is the story of Felice Basso,

who crossed the mountains of Salerno in 1904, to bring the freshly picked olives to Serino, in Irpinia, where he met the love of his life.

Inside every drop of our oil there is the story of Fedele Basso,

who founded the “Basso Fedele e Figli” with tenacity and great humanity. To which he dedicated, with his wife, his whole life.

Inside every drop of our oil there is the story of Sabino Basso,

who has transformed the small family-run factory into a company that exports to over 80 countries around the world, with resourcefulness and courage.

Inside every drop of our oil there is the story of Fabrizio and Federico Basso,

who combine innovation and tradition, with gratitude and seriousness.

Inside each drop of our oil there is the story of each of us.

“The great Basso family is what has always joined us and tied us up together.”

It is the synergy that has been created, the kind of understanding that goes beyond the simple working collaboration that makes working together so special.

Luigi, Gianni, Filippo, Raffaele, Corrado are just some of the many faces and names priceless for us, which have intertwined with each other writing the pages of our history, year after year.

Lives that still intertwine in the daily sharing of our own values and objectives, side by side. Or who try to intertwine again, even if the work together has long ended, with dedications and anecdotes of past memories to tell and write to each other.
