Italian Extra Virgin Olive Oils sourced with passion for your family and friends

The fascination for Extra Virgin Olive Oil runs deep in our family.

Antonello – my father – has always used it as a staple for family gatherings and in our everyday life. He always taught me that a bad oil can ruin your dish, while a great EVOO can make it exceptional.

I want you to start an amazing journey of appreciation of high-quality olive oils with us, understanding its unique gastronomic and health properties.

One slurp at the time.

Our Story

On the shelves is often sold close to or after the expiry date (which sometimes is not even in the label). Giuseppe decided to make it his mission to bring to Canada some of the finest sustainable Extra Virgin Olive Oils from small Italian producers, showcasing specific terroirs and with unique health properties.

The problem with industrial EVOO

Financial
While you may save a few bucks on a bottle of olive oil, many farmers in Italy and abroad are struggling to make a living and are forced to sell their oil with minimum or no profit.
Environmental
Most of the cultivars used for intensive agriculture require the use of pesticides and chemicals in the soil. This not only is dangerous for the soil, but also for the biodiversity of the olive tree, considering that in Italy alone there are over 500 varietals, an important heritage that deserves to be protected.
What is behind this name?

Oleocanthal derives from the Latin Oleo-, olive, canth-,sting, al-aldeyde and is a rich antioxidant/throat irritating compound that American Scientist Dr. Gary Beauchamp identified after a trip to Italy, when he tasted some high-quality EVOO from Sicily and noticed that the pungent sensation the oil provided in the mouth was the same as ibuprofen and thus he identified the oleocanthal compound.

Our EVOOs are very much like the one that Dr Beauchamp first tried in Italy: they will likely make you cough as they are rich in oleocanthal, which has proven to help against diseases such as Alzheimer, arthritis and cancer. We recommend up to 3-4 tablespoons per day to get the most benefits of Oleocanthal!
