A passion that started in the 1970s in the heart of the Marche region, in San Severino Marche.

The story of the Castellino brand was born out of an unexpected proposal.
A phone call between two entrepreneurs and a simple question: "Why don't you help us sell our olives?"

It is the beginning of a great adventure... that of the Ralò company.
