Specifically, Partanna Premium Select Whole Sicilian Black Olives represent tradition and four generations of olive cultivation. Partanna is an old town in Italy located on a hill, and the olive growing takes place while nestled at the foot of that hill.

Table olive varieties are more difficult to harvest than olive oil, as workers must take care not to damage the fruit; baskets that hang around the worker's neck are used. In some places in Italy, Croatia and Greece, olives are harvested by hand because the terrain is too mountainous for machines. As a result, the fruit is not bruised, which leads to a superior finished product. The method also involves sawing off branches, which is healthy for future production.
