Why our olive oil is the best

Statistics have shown that EVOO is a healthy alternative, controlling heart disease, cholesterol, even diabetes. It is now considered a "neutraceutical" and should be taken every day ! Located at ParkWest Mall in Peoria, off Loop 101 & Northern Avenue just one mile from the University of Phoenix Stadium. West of the Harkins Theatres, across from Blu Burger Grille. We encourage you to "try before you buy" and offer a free tasting bar for over 40 flavors of oils and vinegars.

"Food for the body is not enough. There must be food for the soul."
