WHY TURKISH OLIVE OIL?
Turkey is one of the world’s oldest producers and connoisseurs of olive oil. The ancient Greek poet, Homer, once called olive oil “liquid gold”. To this day, Turkish people hold their oil in high esteem. There is even an entire cuisine dedicated to olive oil! Consequently, producers like Amphora, take pride and great care to press some of the world’s finest oil.
You may not have realized it, but you have probably already consumed olive oil from Turkey. Even though Turkey is the fourth largest producer of olive oil, most of its product is shipped to Italy where it is bottled, packaged, and shipped all over the world.
Turkey has only recently gained recognition in the United States for its quality oil and has begun to make its way to local markets. Taste the richness and take in the aroma that thousands of years of cultivation and craftsmanship give to Turkish olive oil today.
