Meet our Extra Virgin Olive Oil: Frank Organics

You know that quote about how you’re judged by the company you keep? Well we’re proud to announce our first partner. Olive oil is a big deal for us as you can see in this post. So after searching high and low, we decided that Frank Organics was the olive oil for us. I took one taste of Frank, and felt like I was next to a warm blue ocean with endless blue skies. Frank took me straight to the Mediterranean! In addition to its wonderful flavor, Frank is organic and dedicated to transparency in their process. You can see detailed videos of their olive trees and process on their website. Frank is also a NYC start-up like us. Can you say a match made in heaven?

Frank is such a perfect partner, we thought it was a fitting topic for our very first press release:
