  • Olive Oil for the Greater Good

    The Pure Greek Olive doesn’t merely strive to provide the most authentic extra virgin olive oil on the market. From its very origins, the Pure Greek Olive has sought to build bridges from Greece to the United States along commercial and cultural lines. It is furthermore the belief of the company that the key to alleviating Greece’s economic crisis is grassroots entrepreneurial integration and vision within and beyond Greece – a belief that constitutes the vehicle of the Pure Greek Olive’s function.

    The relationship between Greece and the United States has been a robust, close-knit bond that dates back to the very founding of both modern countries. The first Greek immigrants arrived on America’s shores in 1768. Founding fathers from both nations – men like Thomas Jefferson and Adamantios Korais – kept correspondence with each other during their people’s struggles for independence and freedom. Greeks have become a significant and industrious part of the American social fabric, and Greek democratic ideals are at the very heart of the American government and identity.

    The Pure Greek Olive thus sees itself as part of the continuation and perpetuation of this deeply rooted relationship between the United States of America and Greece. During this most volatile period of Greece’s recent history, cultivating commercial ties between it and the U.S. lies at the very heart of resolving the economic depression Greece has been experiencing. Such grassroots entrepreneurial efforts consequently build cultural bridges between the two countries.

    Given the centrality of olive oil to Greek culture, lifestyle and gastronomy, bringing a most authentic and exquisite olive oil to America’s shores offers to the American palate a genuine taste of a Greek tradition dating back to the dawn of civilization.

    In endeavoring to enrich and strengthen the vitality of a centuries-long relationship between two nations, the Pure Greek Olive is cultivating an even stronger Greek-American bond by advancing economic integration and promoting cultural exchange.

  • The Olive Oil Source Launches Documentary Series to educate consumers about olive oil

    The Olive Oil Source, the industry leader in olive oil-related products, today announced the launch of a new documentary series created to educate consumers about olive oil. Working with media development company, Bottle Branding, The Olive Oil Source is producing a series of videos covering all aspects of olive oil, including industry practices and quality factors. The first two segments are now available to view on The Olive Oil Source website.

    “With increasing interest in the healthy aspects of olive oil, The Olive Oil Source believed it was important to provide greater education about olive oil quality. Media outlets have been quick to report on fraudulent practices, including mislabeled contents and inferior quality being passed off as extra virgin, but few have offered clear education and insight,” said Michelle Ball of Bottle Branding.

    “The new documentary series by The Olive Oil Source will delve into subjects including best production practices, tasting parameters and flavor profiles.”
    In an excerpt from the introductory segment, Antoinette Addison, Vice President of The Olive Oil Source, described the driving force behind the series.

    “Not all olive oils are created equal, but the problem is that people don’t know that,” stated Addison. “It’s another reason for us to do as much education as we can.”

    The new series is the latest addition to a full range of olive oil-related products and services from The Olive Oil Source, including a full range of more than 115 blends and flavors of high quality, authentic olive oil and vinegar and a full line of lifestyle products for the home. Since 1998, the company has been internationally recognized as the premiere source for the highest quality products in the olive oil industry.
