Happy National Olive Day!
“The olive tree is surely the richest gift of heaven” – Thomas Jefferson
Get out your martini glasses and get ready to celebrate the first-ever National Olive Day with DIVINA. On June 1st, 2016, we will raise a glass to one of the oldest and most diverse foods known to man, the olive.
So many people still think that olives are simply green or black – but in actuality there are hundreds of olive varietals. Similar to wine, chocolate and coffee, olives are as diverse as the countries across the Mediterranean in which they’re grown. DIVINA’s expertise is in producing the finest quality specialty olives and introducing them to the US market. For 20 years, we’ve seen unprecedented growth in the specialty olive/antipasti category.
DIVINA supports small-scale agriculture, biodiversity and traditional farming practices and our olives are traceable from tree-to-table. Our growers come from families who have crafted olives for generations. It’s a love and a passion for culinary heritage and the land that drives these men and women to continue the tradition of olive growing and curing.
Olives are a party starter – pair them with beer, wine, cocktails, charcuterie and cheese and your guests will be entertained with minimal effort. This June 1st, get the party started with Divina olives and enjoy the first annual National Olive Day!
