Olíva! EVOO Club was created for our customers who enjoy the freshest EVOO available from around the world!
A lot of our customers first discovered Olíva! upon their search for a ‘good’ EVOO… and that’s one of the things we pride ourselves on! We supply Ultra Premium (UP) Certified EVOO, which is a new category of olive oil that distinguishes the highest quality olive oil in the world. First created in response to the growing need to separate high quality EVOOs from what dominates the so called “gourmet” and “premium” olive oil markets. All of our Ultra Premium Certified EVOOs are single varietal, meaning they are pressed from one single variety of olive and are never blended.
The very common overemphasis on “WHERE” an oil is produced continues to sway perceptions at the expense of the far more significant “WHEN, WHAT & HOW” the oil is made. Since the highest quality EVOO comes from high quality fruit coupled with high quality production processes, the UP standard encompasses strict requirements for both the end-product and the production process.
The UP standard is reserved for the finest extra virgin olive oils in the world, and exceeds all existing European, Italian, Spanish, Greek, North American, Californian, or any other standard for the grade known as ‘Extra Virgin Olive Oil’. In order to qualify for the UP grade, the EVOO must meet or exceed a comprehensive set of production, storage, transportation, testing, chemistry, and organoleptic requirements!
