KALAMATA GOLD Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Greece’s roots to the sturdy olive tree and its life-sustaining fruit date to 600 BC. Considered sacred by the ancient Greeks, the olive tree is also the first known cultivated tree in history. Today, Greece is one of the world’s top producers of olive oil and its prized Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO) is a staple in every Greek household. A key component of the Mediterranean Diet, Greek EVOO is rich in anti-oxidants, with anti-inflammatory properties known to protect against heart disease. Kalamata Gold Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil is made with certified organic olives growing in Mani in the southern Peloponnese of Greece: a region with the ideal climate and soil for the cultivation for this precious fruit. Our organic olives are carefully handpicked to avoid bruising and then cold extracted or “pressed.” The result is an olive oil with a bold fruity flavor and aroma and the tangy finish characteristic of the best EVOOs. Kalamata Gold Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil will add earthy goodness to everyday cold and hot preparations: from salad dressings and marinades to sauces, dips, spreads, pan sautéed dishes and baked goods. Of course, the best way to savor our EVOO is drizzled on feta cheese, in salads, on veggies and with bread.
