Marco Petrini, President of Monini North America Inc., proudly announces that the company has joined in June of 2018 the EVA family of high quality oils that represents only premium producers from various producing countries around the world. EVA operates as a non-profit trade association, with a clear goal in mind: restoring trust in the marketplace by representing the best quality oils, identifying them to the American consumer with the EVA mark of Quality and Authenticity.
EVA was founded a decade ago by respected olive oil experts Paul Miller and Alexandra Devarenne. The strict requirements to be part of the EVA family is by itself a guarantee that only the best oils can carry the EVA mark on the bottle. Key elements of the testing and policy procedures for EVA members include an assurance of quality at the “Best Before” date and a stringent production and bottling protocol for members.
Monini has listed in its EVA assortment the popular GranFruttato, a rich and fruity oil obtained with a blend of Southern Italy Regions and Cultivars. Plus the full line of DOP and IGP oils coming from the four most recognized production areas in Italy (Toscana, Umbria, Puglia, Sicilia). And, finally, the recently launched Monocultivar assortment of Frantoio, Coratina and Nocellara oils that have won multiple wards, including Best of Show and Best of Class at the recent Los Angeles and New York Olive Oil Competitions.
Marco Petrini said: “We could not be more proud of the opportunity to join such a distinctive list of quality producers, and to help EVA spread the word to American consumers about the incredible benefits and joy that a good olive oil makes in your daily routine. Whether you are eating out, or grabbing a salad in your office break, or cooking a meal for your family or friends, you should always have a reliable, good quality oil at your disposal. And the EVA family of products and producers are the absolute best. Since my first meeting with Alexandra and some of the other EVA members, I have found so much passion and competence and cannot wait to work side by side with the EVA leadership team and members to further enhance EVA’s reach and message.”
“Monini is a natural fit with EVA and we are delighted to welcome them to the family,” said Ms. Devarenne. “This is a company firmly committed to quality products and practices, and with a big heart. We are looking forward to working together to spread the word about the pleasure and benefits of great extra virgin olive oil!"
