60 MINUTES - "Agromafia" January 3, 2016.

Giuliana Direct Olive Oil is thrilled that 60 Minutes has tackled this unfortunately long standing issue of adulterated olive oil in our business. We launched Giuliana Direct Olive Oil five years ago with the mission to connect people with 100% guaranteed, authentic extra virgin olive oil. We personally know each and every farm we work with and ,over the years, have visited their orchards and mills several times. All of our producers grow their own olives, make their own oil and most importantly, bottle them at their farms, guaranteeing authenticity. Then we direct-import them in temperature controlled containers, and do not use brokers or bulk oil suppliers. Our producers have a devout local following in their regions and excellent reputations for making real olive oils, in some cases, for over five generations! We are transparent, posting the harvest date, polyphenol count, and “best if used by date” on all of our products. Freshness and authenticity are of utmost importance to us. Please look for the arrival of the fresh 2015 harvest next week- our producers are thrilled with the results this year. 2015’s have wonderful concentration, clear flavors, and intense colors! *All natural, 100% authentic, estate-grown and bottled olive oils from the world’s greatest producers available at

Much like the wine renaissance that occurred over the last 15 years, an olive oil renaissance is in the making. People are discovering the many uses and flavor variations of EVOO. Smaller producers—true artisans—are being discovered and enjoyed by greater numbers of people,” Lewis said.
