A PRESSING MATTER
Always in pursuit of the purest and most nutritional extra virgin olive oil, Green Olive Company has become well acquainted with small-batch growers and producers in different climates and geographic regions of the world. Instead of importing from large commercial farms, we focus on olive varietal crops grown by artisan farmers who consistently create exquisite oils with authentic, luscious flavors. All of the olive oil and balsamic vinegar products we offer are ethically sourced from these independent farmers and sustainably produced using natural farming methods.
Green Olive Company sells only “early harvest” extra virgin olive oils (EVOOs), ensuring superior taste and more significant health benefits. Being made from the first press of olives, while they are just ripening and still green, preserves the naturally occurring polyphenols found in olive oil. These organic compounds have demonstrated numerous health-promoting properties, with studies linked to anti-inflammatory, anti-hypertensive, anti-arthritic, cardio-protective, and anti-carcinogen activities. Our high polyphenol oils also have a high smoke point, making them perfect for pan-frying, sautéing, and cooking.
Like many fruits, olives must be harvested during certain times of the year. Because the Northern and Southern Hemispheres always experience opposite seasons, we rotate our olive oil products every six months depending on which hemisphere is pressing olives to ensure absolute freshness.
Whether you purchase our oils and vinegars from our online olive oil store or at our local tasting emporiums, you can be assured that you’ll receive the finest quality gourmet food products at prices that all food lovers and chefs can afford.

WHY OILS AND VINEGARS?
Olive oils and balsamic vinegars are an easy way to add mild, moderate, or robust flavors to so many recipes. They are incredibly versatile and can be used for cooking, marinating, dipping, and dressings. Olive oils are high in antioxidants, proven to have significant health benefits. Olive oils also contain monosaturated fats (considered a healthy dietary fat) but no unhealthy saturated or trans fats. Balsamic vinegars are naturally low in calories.
Green Olive Company takes these kitchen essentials to a whole new level, offering a wide selection of premium blends and unique flavors that you can’t find just anywhere.
All of Green Olive Company’s extra virgin olive oils and balsamic vinegars are 100% vegetarian, 100% pure, all-natural, and free of artificial flavors and chemicals.
