ONE FARM, ONE VARIETY
No blends of different grades, seasons, regions and countries. Our product is single-sourced and monovarietal, enhancing the flavors unique to our brand. We know that our olives are delicious, pure, clean and fruity and need no blending techniques to mask imperfections in our extra virgin olive oils.
GREEN EARLY-HARVEST OLIVES for A LOW-ACIDITY VALUE
99% of our olives are green and picked early to achieve the low acidity that makes our products unapologetically extra virgin. Our extra virgin olive oils also carry the right amount of bitterness and fruitiness to compliment most dishes without overpowering.
NO HEAT, HUMIDITY, AIR or LIGHT EXPOSURE
A good extra virgin olive oil has multiple enemies. Heat, light, air and humidity are on top of the list and Zeytin's olives are carefully protected from these elements. Our olives are never in contact with heat and are always cold processed between 19-25℃ (65-75℉).
We keep our olive oil in chrome tanks filled with nitrogen so oxygen does not oxidate our oils. Then we bottle them in dark UV filtered bottles. This all is how we produce premium quality extra virgin olive oil bottle after bottle.
NO ADDED CHEMICALS for FILTERING and NON-GMO
Great extra virgins do not do not need to be filtered and Zeytin is no exception. Our oils are the closest experience to picking the olive right from the branch and eating it with no filtering. We also keep our whole manufacturing process non-GMO and natural.
HIGHLY CONTROLLED AND CLEAN PRODUCTION
Zeytin's in-house process caters to only producing for us and all machinery and tools used during production are disinfected and cleaned in line with the highest FDA standards. Our facilities are consistently inspected by local authorities and EcoCert (owner of the Organic certification).
We only use natural cleaners around our Extra Virgin Olive Oils and lab test our products every step of the way!
SMALL FAMILY OPERATION for QUALITY OVER QUANTITY
Zeytin provides families with access to the global marketplace. We help educate and nourish small communities, and we lead and inspire the youth to protect their heritage and further develop. This is why Zeytin's practices are truly sustainable and win-win for our customers and producers.
