New Cilento To live 20 years longer

From earth to life

Taking care of the earth means taking care of those who host us and nourish us. This is the key to extending life, improving its quality and happiness. Understand that the earth and life are the same thing, an endless circle to be preserved, valued and kept in balance with a responsible approach.

  • New, because it has as its base the regenerated soil, not poisoned, so that the poison does not arrive on the plates, according to the principles of the science of relations of the twentieth century.
  • New, because it recognizes in the ecological corridors of our valleys the healthy source of aromas and flavors, in a centuries-old process of adaptation of plants to the landscape.
  • New, so that spring water can be drunk in new pipes, not chlorinated in excess to cope with too many leaks.
  • New, because it focuses on the freshness of fruit and vegetables, posing the problem of proximity gardens and recalling an urban policy of gardens.
  • New because it includes the ancient use of so-called wild herbs.
  • New, because, as Keys had written, cooking should not cause nutrients to be lost.
  • New, because cereals must be whole, not only with bran, but also with germ.
  • New, because it wants on the label the mention of the beneficial antioxidants of olive oil.
  • New, because the problem of animal welfare and nutrition, rational, revolving grazing is strongly raised.
  • New, because it comes from a careful reading of Ancel Keys and from knowledge of regenerative organic agriculture.
  • New, because it aims to mend the relationship between city and countryside, severed because the city does not have to know what happens in crops and livestock.
