The Portuguese are discreet, sometimes too discreet and many of our fine artisanal products get consumed in Portugal or are not produced in sufficient quantities for export.
In the last 10 years Portugal emerged as one of the worlds top olive-oil producers, but surprisingly very little finds it’s way to consumers in the US. This is because Portuguese producers sells most of their extra-virgin olive oil in bulk to Italian companies, that then blend with other oils, bottle with their brands and resell the world over. (dont take our word for it: “google italian olive oil”)
We set out to correct this nonsense and with the aim of showing US consumers a Portuguese, award winning olive oil. The name BARE wants to express this product’s simplicity: low yielding olive groves, immediately pressed for freshness, bottled, sealed and shipped directly to your store.
