Olive This! Becomes First Store in Charlotte, North Carolina to Earn Ultra Premium Certification

UP_logo_lrgUltra Premium is a new grade in the industry that distinguishes the highest quality olive oil in the world from what dominates the so called “gourmet” and “premium” olive oil markets.  The UP standard is reserved for the finest EVOOs in the world and as such, the grade of UP exceeds all existing European, Italian, Spanish, Greek, North American or any other standard known as extra virgin olive oil.  In order to qualify for Ultra Premium grade, the EVOO must meet or exceed a comprehensive set of production, storage, transportation, testing, chemistry, and organoleptic requirements. We’re both excited and proud of this new certification.  You always knew the olive oil you enjoyed from the store was of premium quality and held to the highest standards but now it’s certified!  To find out more, (and see us on the certified list) click here!
