In celebration of their 15th anniversary, The Olive Oil Source, the industry leader in olive oil-related products, announced that a special 15% discount will be offered during the month of October on world-renowned Minox products now available on their Wholesale and Boutique websites. Customers must use promo code: Minox2013 to access the discount. The full line of food-safe, NSF-rated storage product solutions offered by The Olive Oil Source range from stainless steel fusti in 3 or 5-liter options perfect for home enthusiasts to larger tasting bar options of up to 100 liters for hobbyists or retailers. Producers can choose from storage tanks of 200 to 1000-liters, outfitted with floating lid design to eliminate exposure to oxygen.
Industry Pioneers Celebrate 15 Years of Growth
Begun in 1998, The Olive Oil Source was the first website to be entirely devoted to the growth and support of the olive oil industry in the United States. Over the years, the site amassed the largest repository of information related to the production and use of olive oil. With hundreds of pages of information about the history and everyday use of olive oil, health benefits and cooking ideas, it is a veritable encyclopedia on the subject.
"For the past 15 years, the company’s growth and success has matched the industry’s opportunities," said Shawn Addison, President, The Olive Oil Source. "We are grateful to be a part of such a vibrant business and look forward to supporting its expansion in the future. The special anniversary discounts are just a small acknowledgement of our appreciation."
As the industry expanded, The Olive Oil Source met the need for expertise, equipment and supplies with an ever-expanding product line. Matching the rapid growth of olive oil production and sales in the U.S., the company recognized the need to provide distinct sales and service avenues for both the wholesale and consumer categories. It refined its web presence by creating two on-line stores to service the independent needs of its wholesale and retail customers.
This dedicated business-to-business website complements the company’s general information site and offers growers, producers, retail businesses, and other industry professionals an extensive line of professional products. The Olive Oil Source’s online Wholesale Store features a full array of specialized wholesale products for the olive oil industry that includes bulk gourmet olive oils and vinegars as well as containers, shiners, spouts, tasting room and professional harvesting equipment.
The Olive Oil Source Boutique offers specialized retail products for the kitchen and the home, from the same award-winning team that has serviced the olive oil industry for years. Unlike many aggregate-retail sites, the products offered by The Olive Oil Boutique have been hand-selected from in-person supplier visits by the team. The Boutique provides every kind of olive oil-related product from oils and vinegars to clothing, skin care and houseware accessories.
In recognition of industry support over the past 15 years, The Olive Oil Source is offering a 15% discount on their newest product line from Minox, world-renowned storage solution supplier. The discount, offered during the month of October, includes two fusti (10 and 12 liter) exclusive to The Olive Oil Source. Customers must use promo code: Minox2013 to access the discount. The products were designed in response to demands from olive oil tasting bar retailers to have taller and narrower options. The exclusive shape is substantially different than anything currently available on the market, allowing stores to make a much more efficient use of space and optimize retail presentation.
Traditionally, "fusti" have been the preferred storage solution for high quality olive oil. The design of the Minox fusti improves product quality and longevity by storing olive oil in food safe NSF-rated stainless steel containers, away from light and oxygen.
The new Minox stainless steel tank and fusti storage product line is the latest additions to a full range of olive oil-related products from The Olive Oil Source, including a full range of more than 120 blends and flavors of high quality, authentic olive oil and vinegar and a full line of lifestyle products for the home.
Perfect Complement to the Wholesale Private Label Program
The Minox line of tasting bar-sized, NSF-rated, food safe storage and serving containers cover the gamut of any retailer’s need at point-of-sale. When used in combination with The Olive Oil Source’s simplified wholesale private label shiner program, specialty food retailers and marketers can create a turnkey retail solution with immediate availability of a full range of oils and vinegars and rapid turn-around production.
