Why we love it
With bittersweet notes of citrus and almond, this artichoke lemon variety is a must-try for any pesto lover. We know, we've tried it dozens of times. We adore its squat little jar, where creamy white artichokes swim in rich, golden olive oil. High-quality ingredients make for a taste clean and smooth as fresh laundry on a Sunday afternoon. In pesto form, obviously.
How it does good
Shaking up olive oil production for the better
Though olive oil has been around for millennia, modern oil production isn't always great for the environment. Soil erosion, water scarcity, and the use of pesticides are just a few problems, not to mention the fact that most olive oil comes from Europe, which means it has to be transported elsewhere. Enter Enzo Olive Oil Company. For four generations, the Ricchiuti family has been farming in the San Joaquin Valley, which boasts an optimal climate for plants with Mediterranean origins. Enzo grows 100% of their olives and crafts all of their oils onsite. This limits the effects of transportation and allows them to guarantee environmental integrity. They avoid chemicals, use drip irrigation to cut down on water usage, and recycle water waste to help with soil erosion and dust.
responsible sourcingEnzo works with PowWow Energy to monitor and improve its water and energy usage, and with WiseConn to enhance its irrigation procedures. They produce all their olive oil in-house, sourcing balsamic vinegar and pesto via small businesses. All of their bi-produce is reused.
supporting key causesEnzo is dedicated to helping its community, with initiatives supporting education, health care, and legislation of the olive oil industry.
