Who: Cobram Estate, an Australian olive oil maker specializing in extra virgin olive oils.
What: They’re debuting their olive oils in local supermarkets (check your local Lucky, first). They have several, including ones with infused flavors, with tastes ranging from light to robust.
Why: These olive oils are getting introduced to the US at an affordable price point, for the flavor and fresh taste that they’re providing. I was surprised to learn that a medium-sized bottle would be sold at a $6.99 suggested price point — I would’ve expected it to be much more! If you use olive oil as a healthier cooking alternative and homemade salad dressing ingredient, Cobram Estate olive oil provides a fresher, great tasting, strong value alternative to the other grocery store options I’ve been using. Break out of a rut and try some of these out!
If you really want to check out how they harvest their olives, the Aussies have been hip enough to post a YouTube video about themselves:
