We're really pleased to offer a new option for Spartan Oil! Starting today, you'll have the option to choose an Organic option for Spartan Oil. The olive oil is a product of organic farming practices and the oil is certified by EU-recognized entities. The price for a 200ml bottle of Spartan Oil Organic is $12. A refill option will be available in the future.
We will offer the both the Organic and Conventional versions of Spartan Oil. It's important to note that the conventional and organic oils are of equal quality. In fact, the taste characteristics are nearly identical. The organic is slightly more fruity and the conventional is slightly more pungent. Truly, the only difference between the two versions has to do with the actual paperwork and certification--the olive varieties, the farming, and the trees are very similar.
We understand that consumer choice is paramount and some consumers are making the effort to go completely organic with their food consumption. Whichever you choose, you can be confident that the product is of the highest quality.
Thank you for your response. I do love the flavor. Almost all the olive oils from the store taste like chemicals. I saw someone’s post about your oil on a Food Babe’s facebook post and because I am Greek I thought I would try it. I love it.
Cindi, thanks for the note. You hit the issue right on the head with your note. There is no real difference in the oil—it’s just a matter of the certification. Organic has less to do with the practices and more to do with the bureaucracy involved in the certification process. And, yes, it’s non-GMO.
I had assumed, the trees being 700 years old, the oil was already organic. Is the oil at least non-gmo?
