Sarafino, the company that distributes the Olearia San Giorgio Olive Oil that we sell here at Cochran's, is a small importing and distribution company that deals only in natural and uncompromised artisanal products which are true to their origins.
We carry the internationally renowned Olearia San Giorgio Virgin and Extra Virgin Olive Oils and the new Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Read all about the recent Gold Medals our Olive Oil took home.
These products are created on their own family estate.
"We have come to value traditional farming operations that offer personal responsibility for what they create. Our goal is to defend and promote such artisanal practices, and it is exclusively with these types of operations that we do business. We plan to continue on this path and build our reputation as an honest, hard working, genuine food provider with nothing to hide."
