What is meant by “cold-pressed” and “first-pressed”?

“Cold-pressed” describes the production of olive oil at temperatures below 27 degrees Celsius. Bertolli olive oil is always cold-pressed.

“First-pressed” means olive oil which is obtained from the first pressing of the olives (the first extraction). At Bertolli, we believe in quality above all else. That’s why Bertolli’s experts have developed a seven-step quality program: from analyzing the olives at the beginning of the harvesting season through to carrying out taste tests.

This approach guarantees that each bottle of Bertolli olive oil is of outstanding quality and tastes exactly as described on the bottle.
