The ‘poqa’ olive oil stands out for its rich, fruity and full flavor. The characteristic bitterness, which competes with the spicy flavor, gives away the presence of poqa which after all indicates excellency. These taste characteristics are basically common with those of virgin olive oils produced in the beginning of the season, from partly immature olives, known as agourolado.
Poqa brings the authentic flavor of the olive in every dish, along with the smells of nature and complex aromas, features which make such olive oil unique and valuable.
Particular attention was given to preserving the products’ sensory elements right to the moment of its consumption, by maintaining an even temperature, protecting it from sunlight or even from the touch of the hands of the consumer.
The isothermal glass container was designed to protect the product, the environment and our health.
With its double insulating material, it is ergonomic for everyday use. The strainer is not embedded directly in oil and is in fact designed to separate materials that can be later added inside the bottle (i.e. Mediterranean spice herbs for aromatic oil, olives or any other use). It is, indeed, an eco-friendly “thermos” bottle.
The materials of this packaging-glass, silicone, stainless steel and bamboo-are perfectly suitable and appropriate for use in food, free of lead and BPA, approved by the U.S. FDA authority.
The design incorporates graphic symbolism, simple and elegant design approaches, and bold color combinations unlike other olive oil packages. It looks like a cultivator of the earth, who loves and respects his product, has found himself to be also a gifted artist and author, and has set out to find the appropriate “environment” to keep his product so as to create a great gift for anyone who can appreciate it.
