Olive Oil Pantry Pouch
Our innovative Pantry Pouch olive oil packaging offers impermeable protection from air, moisture, light, and temperature to maintain freshness longer.
Why the Pantry Pouch?
According to the Australian Government’s 89-page report on The Effect of Storage Conditions on Extra Virgin Olive Oil Quality, one key finding is important: “This project has shown that low storage temperature and the exclusion of oxygen are important factors in maintaining a longer shelf life of olive oil. Exposure to light has also been shown to affect the composition of olive oil and therefore storage conditions which exclude light are also an important factor.” So, while we all have heard that light is the main culprit, it's proven the exposure to air is a direct and timely cause of oils deterioration. Introducing the Pantry Pouch!
Unlike a screw-top bottle that goes uncapped after the first pour and allows air into the bottle, the Pantry Pouch’s dispenser keeps air out, thus preventing the oil from getting oxidized, and therefore ruined. Unlike some glass or plastic bottles, no damaging light can reach the precious extra virgin olive oil inside our impermeable Pantry Pouch.
Unique to the Pantry Pouch is its metallic interior lining that acts like a cistern to help keep the oil even cooler. If temperature, oxygen, and light cause the most damage to olive oil, the Pantry Pouch is your oil’s new best friend. As long as the extra virgin olive oil stays in the Pantry Pouch, you can expect the last drop to stay as fresh as the first. How many things in life can you say that about?
COMMITMENT TO SUSTAINABILITY
Our Pantry Pouch has an 80% reduced carbon footprint over glass bottles and 90% less waste than glass. We all like that. Yes, La Panza has offered a beautiful award-winning ceramic bottle for our award-winning premium extra virgin olive oil in the past. However, like all olive oil lovers, we assume you go through a bottle a month and already have a go-to olive oil bottle that looks elegant on your kitchen counter. But showing off a bottle is not the same as enjoying a fresh, great-tasting oil. That's why repackaged our extra virgin olive oil with only freshness and convenience in mind — and gave our olive oil a new best friend. Environmentally kind. Perfect olive oil.
