Santa Ynez, CA (PRWEB) September 04, 2013
The Olive Oil Source, the industry leader in olive oil-related products, announced that the company has entered into a distributorship agreement with world-renowned Minox products now available on their Wholesale (http://wholesale.oliveoilsource.com/browse/containers-and-accessories/303) and Boutique (http://boutique.oliveoilsource.com/browse/for-hobbyists/629%2C983) websites. 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.
Exclusive to The Olive Oil Source, Minox has created two fusti (10 and 12-liter) 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.
“Offering the Minox line of first-class, NSF-rated storage solutions fits our company mission of making sure customers receive the best products possible,” said Antoinette Addison, Vice President, The Olive Oil Source. “The full range of storage tanks, fusti and accessories from Minox ensures that the best olive oil can be protected from harmful elements whether stored in a warehouse or on the kitchen counter.”
The new Minox stainless steel tank and fusti storage product line joins other recently released products including:
These newest products are 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. Since 1998, the company has been internationally recognized as the premiere source for the highest quality products in the olive oil industry.
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 turn-key retail solution with immediate availability of a full range of oils and vinegars and rapid turn-around production.
At the foundation of the Private Label program is the ability to create custom “shiners”, or unbranded bottles of olive oil or vinegar through a simplified online process. Similar to the wine industry’s approach to bottling wine for later rebranding, the program includes more than 115 olive oils and vinegars to choose from. A wide variety of bottle styles and sizes provide complete flexibility to the customer. Online pricing and ordering make this an industry exclusive, bypassing the typical “call us for more information” sites that hint at the service without providing detailed information upfront.
Another significant advantage of the Private Label program is its low minimum case requirements, allowing specialty food retailers and tasting bar businesses to conduct their own in-store tests with flavor and sizing options. The program presents a perfect opportunity for olive oil tasting bar entrepreneurs and specialty food store owners to fine-tune their own product offerings to fill in the product line gaps or present a cost-effective self-branded option to their customers.
