WHY CHOOSE US?
We believe that healthy and delicious eating starts with fresh, real foods. All of our products are sourced with 100% all natural ingredients – "We believe that Olive Oil is the Key to promoting Plant Forward Diets ! The Culinary Institute of America and the International Olive Council, also says that a shift to plant-forward diets is necessary to achieve global climate goals and promote healthy eating." We agree!
Our team of experts are continuing to build strong relationships with our partners and showcase only the best olive oil producers from Italy, and ensure the most stringent of quality controls always providing the best, the most delicious and most honest product possible to our customers. So our customers can rest assure that when they buy extra virgin, they are getting 100% extra virgin...Our olive oils are tested not once, not twice but three times to guarantee true Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
1. First we have our producer/supplier provide us with a CoA (Certificate of Analysis) which includes chemical testing data showing that it passed all the tests to qualify as extra virgin.
2. Second, We go a step further and we send a sample of each batch to an independent testing lab here in the United States.These samples are tested to make sure it meets or exceeds the criteria to qualify for extra virgin.We also have them do a separate purity test – additional testing to make sure that there are no other oils beside olive oil in the sample. It is possible to pass the initial chemical test to qualify as extra virgin with the addition of other oils such as canola, sunflower, hazelnut, etc. blended in. This is one of the ways other vendors lower their costs and increase their profits.
3. It is important to note that we do our independent testing after the oil has landed in the United States.
These high standards provide our customers with continued satisfaction and offer a variety of olive oil and balsamic that are considered to be some of the finest available on the market today and full of beneficial polyphenols and antioxidant richness. Using seasonal citrus and fresh herbs, these flavors are authentic and unmatched by other products.
We are happy only if you are happy... If you have any questions or comments, would like to receive a sample, please don't hesitate to contact us.
