Pasolivo is proud to announce that we’ve recently received the results from the 2018 Los Angeles International Extra Virgin Olive Oil Competition, the top extra virgin olive oil competition in the United States and recently ranked 5th most prestigious in the world.
658 oils were entered, and only 395 walked away with any awards. Pasolivo oils represented over 2% of all awarded oils this year.
Without further ado, here are the 2018 Pasolivo Olive Oil winners.
Our Award-Winning Extra Virgin Olive Oil Collection
The new year comes with new goals, new mindsets, new ideas, and new achievements. Start 2018 off right with a new focus on a healthier YOU. Extra Virgin Olive Oil is a huge part of a healthier diet. Extra Virgin signifies the highest quality of olive oil based on internationally recognized standards. In California, there is an Extra Virgin Certification program (COOC) that ensures that the oil you buy is, in fact, extra virgin.
It is that time of year where you are looking for a one-of-a-kind corporate gift, something that is customized or hand-selected, luxurious yet affordable, award-winning or certified, and makes a lasting impression. So why choose Pasolivo when it comes to the ideal Corporate Gift? We have listed out 7 reasons (although there are so many more!) on why Pasolivo makes the perfect Corporate Gift:
Here at Pasolivo, harvest is one of the most exciting times of the year! This process only happens once a year and lasts anywhere from 2-3 weeks. If you have ever wondered how olives get turned into olive oil, we have all of the equipment and tools needed for this process at the Pasolivo Ranch. All of our olives are grown, picked, and milled on-site and we do not use any chemicals or heat which is required of true extra virgin olive oil.
The first step in this process is picking the olives. Here at Pasolivo, we have over 6,500 olive trees on our property and 11 different olive varieties. Every day we have a minimum of 80 people hand-picking. Olives are moved by tractor to the mill where they are unloaded into the hopper.
The olives are lined up and ready to be milled
Olive oil is commonly used in bath and body products as it is a natural moisturizer
The health benefits of olive oil go far beyond how often we consume the product. In fact, it’s common to have olive oil sitting in your medicine cabinet for anything besides drinking it. Olive oil has several uses, some of which you may not have known or heard of before. We have compiled some of the most common ways that olive oil can benefit your skin and prevent aging.
What is better than spending the Fourth of July with family, friends, and neighbors? Adding Pasolivo products, flavors, and seasonings of course! We have put together several recipe ideas below to make the Fourth of July as easy, fun, and entertaining as possible. We also included several gift sets below to help amplify your Fourth of July celebration!
