We've Gone Green with What You Need

Welcome to Fustini's

June 2020

Just In...

From pampering to protecting--that’s the shift we’ve made at Fustini’s. We feel very confident we’ve got you well protected but we sure do miss the pampering. We enjoy so much hosting you, our guests, in our tasting rooms. Now, hosting you wearing a mask is beyond difficult. So much is lost communicating feelings when you’ve got 50% of your face covered! But we are confident we’re protecting everyone very well and we remain patient waiting for the day when we can again share oil and vinegar tastings and create flavoring and cooking ideas together.

I hope you enjoy the green ideas in today’s newsletter...from "Asparagus Tips," to fresh green first harvest SELECT Extra Virgin Olive Oils, to new easy to recycle corrugated intermediate packaging.

Stay safe and eat well. We will be together soon.

--Jim

Facebook Live--Fridays at 3 pm!

Join us for this week's "Fridays with Fustini's," All Things Asparagus, on Friday, June 5 at 3 pm EST. Katie and Denise will show you different ways to cook with this springtime favorite. We are so in love with asparagus that we have over 50 recipes on fustinis.com that feature this Michigan produce.

Tune in HERE and she will also be able to answer any questions you submit during the session. FaceBook olive oil and vinegar sets will be available at a 15% discount.

Last week's sets are available through today (June 4). New product sets will be available starting Friday to coordinate with the new recipes presented. You can see current sets on our website in the "New Items" category.

If you missed a Friday, previous Facebook Live events can be seen on our Youtube channel.

Fustini's SELECT Olive Oils are Liquid Gold!

This month, the New York International Olive Oil Competition awarded our three Spanish olive oils gold medals.

The Fustini's management team saw the harvest, milling and immediately sampled this selection of Arbequina, Picual and Frantoio Extra Virgin Olive Oils.

These highly aromatic and vivid green oils are still available while supplies last.

Ann Arbor's Delicious Decade

Fustini's Ann Arbor is celebrating 10 years with their Delicious Decade fundraiser. From now through August, we will donate $1 for every bottle purchased to Food Gatherers of Washtenaw County, along with matching any donation made through this Facebook link up to $5,000.


Environmentally Green Packaging

In our commitment to reducing waste, Fustini's is excited to announce new packaging for your shipping orders.

Pictured to the right, these boxes are made of corrugated cardboard and easy to recycle.


Kids' Food Basket

Last March we had to get creative, and moved from $1 per bottle donated to a campaign that was entirely online. Through the Facebook fundraiser, you donated over $2,800 to Kids' Food Basket (KFB). Along with a generous check from Fustini's owner, Jim Milligan, we are so excited to have helped raise over $7,800 for this amazing organization. Thank you--we would not have been able to do it without you!
