5 Reasons to Pre-Order Our Nuovo Premium Extra-Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO)
1. We can prove that our EVOO is authentic
Our EVOO meets IOOC (International Olive Oil Commission) standards for taste and chemistry, and we publish lab and professional taste results. Consumers are fooled every day because the labelling of olive oil in Canada and the USA is unregulated. Authentic EVOO offers many health benefits… and the taste is incomparable.
2. Our oil is fresh and pure – so it lasts longer.
We harvest the choicest ones and mill them within hours of harvest. Olive oil this fresh contains natural preservatives that allow a shelf life of 18-24 months after harvest. In Italy, it’s known as olio nuovo – new oil. Again, since olive oil labelling in North America is unregulated, many commercial olive oils contain artificial preservatives, and sometimes even refined olive oil or – gasp – other oils! Many vendors also hide their oil’s true age by listing only a 'bottling date'. We store our oil in dark, airtight containers, protected from the light of retail shelves or the air inside on-demand dispensers.
3. You know exactly where it came from.
Unlike many commercial olive oils, our olive oil made in Italy from 100% Italian olives. Our olive groves are located in the zona (region) of Colline Teatino, Abruzzo, Central Italy, where they are hand-picked with the help of shaking tools by Elida's relatives and other local farmers. We use a blend of the local olive cultivars, mainly Gentile di Chieti and Leccino.
4. You know exactly how it’s made.
Since 1905, generations of our family have been honouring the tradition of crafting premium olive oil. We choose to harvest our olives slightly before maturity, resulting in higher levels of antioxidants, bolder flavor and a longer shelf life. We choose modern centrifuge cold extraction for a purer taste and efficiency. The olive oil is filtered and bottled on-site. Nothing is wasted. The liquid and solid byproducts are used for heating and natural fertilizer.
5. We can be your Italian relatives… and offer you rare access to something special.
Wouldn’t you love to have access to limited edition, privately imported EVOO? This is the same liquid gold prized by Italian families, and sometimes sent to their extremely lucky faraway relatives! Now, a small shipment of our authentic, fresh and high-quality olive oil is being shipped to Canada with love, immediately after production, just for you.
We want to offer you the REAL stuff that Italian families have on their kitchen tables.
You've heard of the countless health benefits that come from authentic EVOO, but it is nearly impossible to know if the olive oil you purchase is the real thing.
We want to educate you on olive oil basics so that you can make informed decisions on what you consume
