Why olive oil?
Olives have been cultivated on the Dalmatian coast of Croatia for more than 3,500 years. While industrial seed oils such as soybean and canola oil are out there getting all the glory, the mighty olive oil has quietly been the humble household staple along the Mediterranean for over six thousand years. Why? For one thing, olive oil tastes awesome. Olives are super healthy, and they’re also environmentally sustainable. They grow virtually all over the Mediterranean in abundance—easily, and require little water.
