Every week when I sit down to write this I wonder "Does anybody actually read it?" You most certainly do, last Saturday so many of you came up looking for our new seasons "intense" oil that we sold out! Don't panic, Esther will have more this week.
Did you know?
The two industry bodies we belong to (Olives NZ and Central Otago Olive Growers) will not allow the use of their certified mark unless the oil meets prescribed criteria for Extra Virgin Olive Oil. So why look for certified Extra Virgin Olive Oil? In recent tests in Australia, of the 27 European origin oils claiming to be extra virgin, 78% failed to meet the international standard for EVOO. One of the biggest "jokes" in the industry being: Despite being the worlds largest consumer of Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Italy actually exports more oil claimed to be EVOO than the country produces!
