Iberia Extra Virgin Olive Oil is made from 100% Extra Virgin Olive Oil and hand-selected, harvested olives processed in Spain.  The Spanish olives used are extracted using a “first cold press” process, which provides the rich aroma and flavor quality – ideal for using on salads, pasta, fish, meat dishes and marinades.
