Try our new Olive oil made by La Riojana, cold pressed to maintain it’s buttery flavor from Arauco and Manzanilla olives. La Riojana olives are grown by many long-time farmers located in Argentina who decided to come together as a cooperative, support each other, make a great product, and give back to their community. As a Co-op who strives to support their community we love to support other cooperative that hold those same values. La Riojana invested its profits back into their community by improving fresh drinking water, bringing in medical equipment, and funding better education. Supporting workers, their families, and their community.
