Similar to the explosion of the California wine industry in the 1970s, the California olive oil industry is on the verge of becoming known for producing fresh, high-quality, widely available and affordable extra virgin olive oil (EVOO), and exposing the many benefits of locally grown EVOO over imported brands, right in our own backyard. The launch of “Everyday California Fresh” EVOO from California Olive Ranch, the largest producer of EVOO in North America, marks the first time a US brand can mass-produce high quality, fresh, affordable and traceable everyday EVOO for the US marketplace. From branch to shelf, California Olive Ranch can trace each and every bottle to guarantee quality, taste and freshness, a claim no other everyday EVOO brand can make. The bottle retails for just $8.99.
