Bella di Cerignola Olives

The cultivation and manufacture of the Bella di Cerignola olive dates back to a forgotten pre-Christian age. It is distinguishable by its oval shape, larger than other varieties and by the ease with which the flesh separates from the stone. These Italian olives are firm and fleshy, with a sweet, elegant, rich taste that lends well to eating plain, adding to antipasto...or making a very special martini!

Healing Coolers:
Fresh-Squeezed Juices

Healing Cooler produces delicious fresh-squeezed juices designed to pinpoint a specific healthful asset, including Immunity, Strength and Recovery. You can choose your own combo pack based on diet or favorite flavors. The juice is extracted from fresh fruits and vegetables using a hydraulic press, which retains more vitamins, trace minerals and enzymes than other juicing techniques. The result is a fresh and vibrant flavor with a fine and pulp-free texture. Who wouldn’t love a case of these healthy treasures?
