In 2001, a small flat near New Cross packed with boxes full of olive oil, became Apulia Blend’s first warehouse. The same year, equipped with a chair and an unsteady wooden table, I opened my first market stall in Borough Market (London Bridge). At the end of the trading day, the only things left were the empty boxes and a big smile on my face.
From that day forward, Apulia Blend has grown to become one of the leading companies with the finest olive oil range; appreciated from individual consumers to gastronomy professionals
It is really important to us that our products are authentic. That's why we carefully select producers that have an ethical approch to food
The quality of our products is a huge priority for us. That's way the quality of ingredients are the main component of our business.
it is not too difficult to make a healthy product, you just need to avoid adding artificial colours, flavours, preservatives or hydrogenated fats....
soon after that he decided to put into practise all his gradfather (Nonno Pasqualino) taught him when he was a kid, he rushed back to Italy got hold of the most "mature advise" he could get (all farmers aged 70 plus...) and started to import the finest product he could make.
The success was imminent that after few months Danilo decide to drop out from Uni to fully dedicate himself to this new venture which was sailing rapid and fast.
Nowdays Apulia Blend Ltd has established itself as importer of fine foods for branded and private labels products, we also consider case studies and new projects either in UK or overseas
Whilst our main core business remains Extra Virgin Olive Oils followed by Balsamic Vinegars the company has developed further range of food products such as olives, tomatoes etc
The company also created three different channels of businesses:

The Olive Oil Mill: which has its own website for consumers that wish to purchase our products to use at home and have it delivered right to their door
Danilo Manco: our exsclusive range of fine products 100% natural which are available in UK other countries.
The company also achieved different accretiation over the years such as those for the production of Organic and PGI products.
