Why is it no longer 100% from California?

Why is it no longer 100% from California?
It’s no secret that farming is a difficult business and growing olives is not without its challenges. Olives are alternate bearing, so it can make harvest unpredictable. We have been preparing for changing weather patterns for years now – planting more acres and fine tuning our farming practices. Over the years, we’ve fostered valuable relationships with olive farmers around the world in an effort to learn from each other and grow the olive oil industry together.

How is this different than what you've been doing since the beginning?

How is this different than what you've been doing since the beginning?
It's not. Our master millers have been blending to a specific taste profile since the original launch of our Everyday Series years ago - blending varietals based on flavor profile and varying intensity levels. We've blended these flavors throughout the year to maintain a consistent taste profile. Destination Series will essentially be the same - blending to a deliciously consistent taste profile so what you taste in January is the same profile you will taste in December - consistency in taste is the key.
