Summer shipment on the way!
We have spent the last while in Italy meeting with new producers and working together with them to choose additional products to add to the Olive Oil Merchant portfolio. And we are happy to report that new products are on the way!
Leaving today from Italy, the product will travel via climate controlled container from the port of Livorno through the Panama Canal and up to Vancouver. The container is climate controlled so the oil will not be exposed to extreme temperatures en route. This is important because all of our oils are high quality, artisan products and we must ensure they arrive in Canada the same way they left Italy – at their best!
The new products that will be available mid-July include the following:
Librandi Organic from Calabria – awarded the prize as Best EVOO from Organic Farming and given a ranking of 97/100 by Flos Olei 2010*. We are very pleased to introduce this product for the first time in Canada. Available in limited quantities in both 500 and 750ml bottles. An robust intensity Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
