International brand FILIPPO BERIO made my heart very glad when they agreed to come on board for sponsorship of FBI2011 by sponsoring a bottle of their best selling olive oil for each goodie bag. I have been wanting to try out this particular olive oil since it became available in South Africa but living in the backwaters….as I do……I have not been able to come by it in any of the local grocery stores so it was a real bonus to find some in my goodie bag.
Below is the Announcement Release from Tapiwa, PR for Filippo Berio. I couldn’t say it better myself………….
Felippo Berio, the best selling brand of olive oil brand in the UK, USA, and Canada, and now available in South Africa – great news for olive oil lovers who appreciate that not all olive oils are created equal. Just as fine wine is graded and appreciated by vintage and varietal, olive oil is taking its rightful place at the tasting-tables of discerning palates. Extra Virgin Olive Oil from Tuscany, and in particular from the province of Lucca, home to FILIPPO BERIO, has always been valued for its mild fruity taste and superb quality. Produced under the scrutiny of FILIPPO BERIO’s Olive Oil Masters since 1829, FILIPPO BERIO’s particularly fine flavour, versatility and health benefits have ensured the brand’s lasting popularity. Despite the fact that FILIPPO BERIO is Italy’s largest exporter, it remains a family-owned business, with every batch personally tasted. Not surprisingly, the brand won the Good Housekeeping prestigious Food Award in 2009 – with readers choosing FILIPPO BERIO as “The ingredient they couldn’t live without”. South Africans will be thrilled to know that FILIPPO BERIO Extra Virgin Olive Oil is now available in both a 250ml and 1l glass bottle, at a highly competitive price.
