The Academy of Chocolate was Established in 2005 by five of Britain’s leading chocolate professionals who were united in the belief that eating fine chocolate is one of life’s great pleasures. The Academy campaigns to raise awareness of the difference between fine chocolate and the mass-produced chocolate confectionery. The Acadamey works to improve the standard and knowledge by promoting an understanding of the ingredients of chocolate from bean to bar. They also encourage the transparent sourcing of cocoa beans from the plantations and their production in socially fair and sustainable conditions.

Don’t fall victim to olive oil fraud – CBS News… The video to the right tells the story

60 Minutes did a great job putting this segment on extra virgin olive oil together.  It has been at least 10 years since we first started seeing articles, research and even books that talked about olive oil fraud.  The amazing thing is your grocery stores even some that promise you better product still don’t get it and are still selling EVOO that is either polluted with other seed oils, food coloring and processed with heat.  On top of that much it is rancid because it has been sitting around in warehouses forever or they are working with producers that are manipulating the harvest and best buy dates.

 

The best advice they give on in the 60 Minutes Overtime segment is to shop online in order to get the best EVOO.

Crossroads 4 Extra Virgin Olive Oil is a separate web store with different purchasing criteria.

Our minimum order is 3 bottles on our EVOO site and the freight is free in the 48 contiguous states.  You can pay more but you will not find a better selection in terms of quality and price than what we offer on this site.
