Homer called it "liquid gold." In ancient Greece, athletes ritually rubbed it all over their bodies. Olive oil has been more than mere food to the peoples of the world: it has been medicinal, magical, an endless source of fascination and wonder and the fountain of great wealth and power.
Today olive oil is still a treasured commodity all over the world, and has recently grown in popularity thanks to its inherent health advantages in addition to its godly taste. Here at Spice Traders, we have scoured the globe to bring you the most fresh and authentic extra virgin olive oils around.
All of our Olive Oils are flavored with fresh local produce that is mixed and pressed with the olives via a certified Cold-press process. This ensures fresh vibrant flavors and consistant high quality.
