  • testimonials

    "We have been getting calls, emails and texts from our clients thanking us for the gift boxes and telling us how much they love them. I wanted to pass along my sincere thanks to you for making this happen so quickly and seamlessly."

  • testimonials

    "I really appreciate the packaging and gift wrap on this order. But most of all I appreciate the product itself, wow. My wife is thrilled and neither of us can believe that olive oil could taste this way. It's borderline tragic how many people in North America will never know the difference ... I'll continue to order from time to time, because I don't think there's any going back!"

    "Dear Olive Oil Emporium and staff,
    My package of treasures arrived. JUST WOW! everything, is JUST WOW! and more wow. Beautifully packaged, all was a delight to unwrap (some is for me, some are for gifts, so i will rewrap - eventually, after I get a few good looks at it all). Many many thanks. I will order from you again. THANK YOU!"

    "A great shopping experience! I've been meaning to share my first experience at your store on Bayview near the beginning of this month, May 4th. I live in the neighbourhood but I’ve never been to the store before nor do I know much about olive oil and balsamic vinegar. The young lady working there was very friendly, informative and professional. She taught me a lot about your products and made it a very enjoyable shopping experience.  I have since visited your store again for more olive oil and balsamic this time. Great quality.  So thumbs up to you for picking out quality staff to represent your products. She’s doing a great job."
