Olive Oil Packaging: Why Cans Over Glass Bottles?

Olive oil, unlike wine, does not improve with age. The peak of quality is essentially the moment the olives are picked from the tree, and from that moment on air, light, and heat all contribute to loss of quality - that’s why it’s so crucial that the olives are brought to the mill right away, why our mill stores the oil in tanks filled with nitrogen right up until it’s packaged (to keep out oxygen), and why we encourage you to enjoy it liberally rather than holding onto it for a long time. It’s also why we choose to pack in tinplate cans instead of glass bottles.
