November Pressing Matters

  • Fresh oil needs protection. Floating lid containers work well to eliminate exposure to oxygen while in storage. For smaller containers, try using inert gas (available in The Olive Oil Source Boutique and The Olive Oil Source Wholesale Store) to seal your oil’s freshness and prolong that “olio nuovo” experience.

  • Once the harvest is complete, review your orchard management program. Check for olive fly infestation and remove all evidence so that next year’s crop won’t suffer from overwintering pests.

  • It’s olio nuovo time! In-store demonstrations and seasonal specials are great ways to introduce old customers to the new harvest. It’s an ideal time to educate consumers on the value of “fresh” when buying and using extra virgin olive oil.
