The Kelowna Capital News included The Olive Oil Merchant's products as one of its favourite things to share this holiday season. The Capital News and Edmonton Journal also featured the online store for its flavourful olive oils.
- I have a new favourite, the Librandi Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil. A flavour powerhouse: “Its aroma is complex and round with lots of medium ripe tomato. The taste is elegant and strong with vegetable tones throughout.” Basically, I want to pour this liquid gold on everything I eat. – Jennifer Schell, Kelowna Capital News
- The specialty oil can be traced to an actual grove, have a best-before date (I love this idea) and a bin number so that products can be traced. – Liane Faulder, Edmonton Journal
