Customers frequent our store and are perplexed as to which olive oil to choose. They ask for a “less expensive” oil to cook with and a “more expensive” oil to dip in.
I’m a a true believer in keeping olive oil prices low so that our customers can enjoy one extra virgin olive oil for all their needs. A 3L of Olive Oil for $23-$29 can fulfill all cooking needs, all while enjoying the benefits of the pure extra virgin olive oil that should be in every bottle.
At the GIFM we sell only Greek Olive Oil, as we truly trust it to be the purest and highest quality/tasting oil.
It’s unfortunate that typical grocery stores do not offer a wide selection of Greek olive oils.
Stay tuned as we will be expanding our online section of Greek Extra Virgin Olive Oils!
