So why did we choose to represent Veronica Foods? Susan Hanegan Burdorf, owner of Gourmet Oil and Vinegar explains that the Veronica Foods company is the only one of its kind that holds exclusive contracts with the best balsamic suppliers in
. Not only that but these contracts have been held for over 3 generations making it a very strong product. Sue also explains that another important factor to the Veronica Foods company is the fact that Veronica herself tastes all the extra virgin olive oils before purchase, making sure it is up to her company standards. For example one of the company standards to keeping a very tasteful product is making sure the olives are harvested earlier then most other suppliers to avoid olive plumping. This preserves the olive taste, as most of the plumping is just water. Italy
“Understanding how much pride Veronica has in her products, makes me very honored to supply these oils and vinegars from all around the world that would be very difficult for the average consumer to come across.”
