THE TRUTH ABOUT THE OLIVE OIL MARKET IN THE U.S.

More than 69% of "extra virgin" olive oils in U.S. supermarkets do not meet legal standards to be labeled as such.* Often, extra virgin oil is mixed with cheaper, lower grade oils. The blend is then chemically colored, flavored and deodorized.

HOW TO CHOOSE QUALITY OLIVE OIL

AVOID CLEAR GLASS BOTTLES

Light is the greatest enemy of olive oil and causes the oil to go rancid. Choose a UV-protected bottle or a stainless steel container that protects the olive oil from the sun.

Olivo Amigo uses UV-protected bottles to ensure your olive oil is protected from light. This assists in maintaining our olive oils' rich flavors and health benefits.

CHECK THE HARVEST DATE

Take note of the harvest date (not bottling date). Unlike wine, the fresher the olive oil is, the better. Over time, olive oil loses both flavor and health benefits.

Our bottles always come labeled with the harvest date. We source olives from the early harvest (early October - current olive oil is from October 2020 harvest), which results in the highest quality olive oil available on the market.

TAKE NOTE OF THE PRODUCTION

To avoid chances of poor quality blended oils, it's safest to choose olive oils that are grown and produced in the same country.

Olivo Amigo is grown and produced in the healthiest country in the world, Spain,* then consciously shipped here to the United States. Our products only contain one ingredient: fresh, all-natural olive oil.
