We were thrilled to host Daniela Hammond from OLIVE The Best in Port Moody to tell us all about olive oils and vinegars.
We invited her to talk to us via our Facebook LIVE during Market Day. There was so much to learn.

Olive oil is key part of the Mediterranean Diet, replacing butter and other saturated fats with a healthy, monounsaturated fat. Start by simply substituting Ultra Premium Olive Oil when you would otherwise use butter – on toast, popcorn, and for cooking. Consider trying our Butter flavoured olive oil. Yes!
