A HIGH-END EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL FROM CHILE THAT RIVALS THE WORLD’S BEST IN TASTE, PRODUCTION AND HEALTH BENEFITS? TURNS OUT, THAT’S PRETTY NEWSWORTHY.
By now you’ve learned what Santiago and its Premium and Limited Edition lines are all about. But how about the who, why, when, where and how part of the story? All together, it’s a pretty impressive tale of bucking trends and rewriting tradition. Here are a few articles that shed even more light on how Santiago is changing perceptions of extra virgin olive oil.
For starters, the fact that a company from Chile is stirring up the Mediterranean-dominated extra virgin olive oil industry is impressive in its own right. Just ask Esquire Magazine and the Philadelphia Inquirer.
Also, do you think all olive oils are the same? Think again, according to this article from WebMD.com. One topic that’s not up for debate is the wide-ranging, healthful properties of a diet rich in extra virgin olive oil, as highlighted by the New York Times, the Mayo Clinic, CNN, Discovery.com and The Olive Oil Times.
Oh, and don’t forget to check out these pictures of Santiago’s olive mill in Chile’s Colchagua Valley. Not only is it a beautiful facility made largely from biodegradable materials, it’s recently achieved carbon neutral status, the next step for a building that already uses geothermal temperature controls and solar-powered irrigation systems.
