What’s in your olive oil?

Much has been published on the health benefits of Extra Virgin Olive Oil and with the rediscovery of the advantages of Mediterranean style diets; the demand for extra virgin olive oil has reached an all time high here in North America. With an annual growth rate of 10 percent or better, production and distribution of olive oil in the United States has created a market worth billions. Unfortunately, the high demand provides opportunity for unscrupulous suppliers to take advantage of consumers through adulteration and false or misleading labeling of less than Extra Virgin product.

Northfield Olive Oils and Vinegars invites you to attend a private tasting event and discussion of Extra Virgin Olive Oils from around the world and the Ultra Premium Standard in olive oil. During this event you will learn what to look for when choosing Extra Virgin Olive oil and how to recognize truth in labeling. You will also have the opportunity to taste and sample fused and infused oils, as well as balsamic vinegars from Modena Italy and learn how they can be incorporated in your everyday cooking
