MONTE OZOLO SOCIAL DAIRY - THE HISTORY
The history of the "Monte Ozolo Social Dairy" begins in 1911, when the company "Latteria Sociale Di Revò", an economic consortium with limited guarantee, was born. In 1962, the Dairy was transformed into "Dairy Turnario Di Revò", a limited liability cooperative company with Salazer Isidoro as president. The company aimed to contribute to the moral and economic improvement of its members, who had to offer a guarantee of honesty and morality. On March 16, 1969, the shareholders' meeting of the Turnario Dairy approved the new name of the company which takes the name of "Dairy Social Monte Ozolo" Limited liability cooperative company, based in Revò and with President Gironimi Guido. The area of social activity included the Municipalities of Revò, Romallo and Cagnò, providing for the commitment, by the partners, of the "total conferment of the milk production obtained in the companies owned by them and owned by the people living with them, with the exception of the quantity of milk intended for family consumption and for rearing calves ".

The dairy has a factory, built in 1967, located in the central area of the town of Revò.
