This New York City startup has managed to make us feel like we’re vacationing in Greece...all with a whiff of their extra virgin olive oil. Find out why. 

 

1. Their organic, extra virgin olive oil has 10x the amount of antioxidants than normal

In order to be deemed extra virgin, olive oils need to have at least 55 mg/kg of polyphenols (the antioxidants that have been proven to reduce our risk of chronic diseases). Every bottle of Kosterina EVOO has more than 500 mg/kg of polyphenols (or antioxidants). This means that all of the heart-healthy, cancer-reducing elements of this superfood are even stronger.

 

2. Helping people "live to be 100" is their mission

Kosterina's founder watched her grandparents live a long and healthy life -- they ate EVOO at every meal. Her Greek ancestors knew that olive oil was sacred, and modern science has proved its health benefits too. The result? One ingredient, pure and simple delivered straight to your door. 

 

3. They make it as easy as saying EVOO

The days of scouring the supermarket shelves for a healthy and authentic bottle of EVOO is over. Kosterina delivers 100% organic EVOO from their olive groves in Greece straight to your door.

And with their subscription options, you never have to run out of oil again.

 

4. Even Martha Stewart loves it

Kosterina is loved by many--even Martha Stewart. “One whiff and you almost imagine you're walking through the olive groves. Taste it and it's so fresh it almost burns the back of your throat.”

 

5. They are a women-owned, family business

Kosterina’s founder, Katina Mountanos, is a mother of two young children and a serial entrepreneur. Her secret? Family dinners with a healthy dose of olive oil.

When she couldn’t find the most authentic, healthiest EVOO for her family, she had to do something.

 

6. Healthy recipes are delivered straight to your inbox

 

As a part of the Kosterina Club, members receive custom EVOO-based recipes and wellness news each week. They know how busy life could be, so they’ve made cooking with Kosterina as easy as possible.

 

7. You feel like family

 

One of Kosterina’s core beliefs is that family comes first. No matter what, they treat every customer like family. Whether it’s round-the-clock assistance, or special care they truly believe that every bottle of Kosterina comes from their family to yours.
