Here at Fustini’s we’re all about the freshest and highest quality olive oil. This is why we’re so excited to share with you that our SELECT first harvest olive oils from the Southern Hemisphere are now available both in-store and online!
But what’s the big deal about these special oils? Only about 3% of the world's olive oil comes from the Southern Hemisphere, making it quite rare. These are the first oils produced in the region, from green fruit with remarkably bright flavor profiles. As freshness is essential to the nutritional value and flavor of the oil, it’s a delight to be able to offer these oils within just three months of the olives being harvested. This week, we’re sharing all about the excitement that this new arrival brings and how you can take advantage of this unique opportunity for the freshest olive oil.
Let’s get together and cook!
