Olives and Oil

The olive plays a fundamental role in Lebanese life, and olive oil has been treasured for generations. Lebanon's authentic olive oil tradition dates to Phoenician cultivations in the 3rd millennium BC.

The greatest exponent of monounsaturated fat is olive oil, and it is a prime component of the Mediterranean Diet. Olive oil is a natural juice which preserves the taste, aroma, vitamins and properties of the olive fruit. Olive oil is the only vegetable oil that can be consumed as it is - freshly pressed from the fruit.
