Ideal at breakfast to give you a healthy, tasty energy boost.

Salad

Extra virgin olive oil made from the very first olives of the season brings out the best in any salad. Drizzle away!

Fruit Salad 

Extra virgin olive oil made from the very first olives of the season has a lovely fruity flavor that works wonders with fresh fruit, especially acidic fruit like oranges.

The garlic and almonds in this cold soup are the perfect partners for this fruity olive oil. Taste the difference!
