Quotes from sommeliers and chefs that tried D'ORO SELECTIONS for the first time:
"I have tried this new olive oil for the first time and I love it. Keep it up guys! I love the brand design too!"
"The freshness it gave to my salad was amazing! It was like I was eating a completely different dish."
"Not so hot you'll get put off, yet hot enough to give your meal a pleasant kick. Unlike with many other flavored olive oils the Arbequina olive still has a strong presence in flavor -simply marvelous!"
"I am somewhat of an olive oil connoisseur. I love it! It has a wonderful flavor, not too intense as to overpower the meal, but just the right kick. You can even taste the olives in it. An exceptional oil."
"I am a complete coffee addict. When you gave me this oil I thought it was made just for me! It's absolutely gorgeous, such rich flavor. I made pancakes with it, was delicious!"
"Very yummy! Not too hot- just right!"
"This is by far the best garlic olive oil I have tasted."

Is the result of our love for food and olive oil. Nine times out of ten times, we add olive oil to our food. The problem is that as much as 50 percent or more of all the olive oil sold commercially in the United States does not pass the stringent testing standards used to qualify the authenticity of real olive oil. As it turns out, many high-volume, non-certified olive oils may contain various blends of rapeseed (canola) oil, soybean oil, flavoring chemicals, and colors that give the illusion of real olive oil - but in reality, these oils are nothing but frauds. We believe this is misleading the customer and we are taking a stand against it!

What we have done so far?

- We have incorporated a business in Chicago, IL and acquired all required licensing and business permits.
- We have resourced logistic companies, custom brokers, shipping merchants, labeling and bottling companies.
- We have designed our custom packaging.
- At the moment we are working on creating a website for D’ORO SELECTIONS.
Risks and challenges
Eurika and Antonio have been preparing to make this leap for well over a year. Despite our years of experience and success to date we are up against established brands. We are going to need to use strategic marketing tactics, adding our expertise in the industry by putting in the good old fashioned hard work that it takes to build strong relationships. Instead of focusing on the mass market immediately, we are focusing on working strategically with already established alliances and industry contacts.
With your help, our chances of success in doing this are infinitely higher!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
