Olinda Ridge Olive Company Launches New Handcrafted Olive Oil Wedding Favors Program

Brides and grooms are choosing personalized extra virgin olive oil as elegant wedding favors that leave a lasting impression.

Olinda, CA, May 07, 2008 --(PR.com)-- More and more, brides and grooms are looking at the gourmet food market for unique and edible wedding favors. Olinda Ridge Olive Company, a provider of handcrafted organic extra virgin olive oils from Northern California, receives at least 1-2 requests daily for olive oil wedding favors. Olinda Ridge provides a simplified and customized olive oil wedding favors offering and also gives the bridal couple a free wedding gift basket including gourmet products and a $10 gift certificate to its online store.

“When we first noticed the frequency of requests for personalized wedding favors, we pulled together a program to make this part of the wedding process simple, and we also give a complimentary gift basket to the couple,” said Antonella Severo, partner of Olinda Ridge Olive Company. “Plus, we are pleased to offer high-quality favors for weddings at wholesale prices. The bridal couple should be wary because there are many products out there on the wedding favors market that might be a little less expensive, but the quality is not as good.”

Food items are becoming popular wedding favors for couples that don’t want to give a useless item to add to their guests’ clutter, but want to send off their guests with a thoughtful parting gift. A bottle of handcrafted olive oil is a great idea for wedding favors as it is rich in history and symbolism of peace. Unlike a wine bottle, which will be consumed in one sitting once opened, a bottle of olive oil is a useful item that will last at least a month on the shelves of the wedding guests.

Olinda Ridge offers a wedding favors package that includes:

• Choice from a variety of award-winning olive oils: Estate Organic, Late Harvest Gold, Master Blend, or Lemon
• 6.8 ounce size bottle; other options available
• Customized Labels: Bride and groom’s names and wedding date added to a pre-designed label with additional choice of colors and fonts
• Gold or black seal
• Free wedding basket gift from Olinda Ridge to the bridal couple including extra virgin olive oil, gourmet vinegar, salt, pasta and a $10 gift certificate to the online store.

The olive oil customized favors program is also available for anniversaries, bridal showers, fundraisers, open houses, or any other corporate or family event.

Olinda Ridge is a family-owned and operated company out of California producing some of the finest olive oil in the state and other gourmet products. The handcrafted extra virgin olive oils are produced and harvested in Northern California, where olives have grown since the 1890s. Great care is taken in every step of the olive oil making process, from handpicking the olives to bottling the oil. Their special method gives the olive oil a high polyphenol count, which maximizes anti-oxidants and their associated health benefits. The result is the highest quality, certified extra-virgin olive oil with superb taste and great nutritional value.

Olinda Ridge Olive Company is a member of the California Olive Oil Council (COOC), an organization providing a Seal Certification program guaranteeing fresh, quality extra virgin olive oils made in California. Olinda Ridge™ organic products are USDA-approved organic and certified by the Certified California Organic Farmers. These extra virgin olives oils have also received several gold, silver and bronze medals at the Olive Oils of the World Competition, L.A. County Fair, and Las Vegas International Restaurant Show.
