Quality, differentiation and organic farming.
The Facetas olive oil is the fruit of my passion for the olive grove. Pure organic olive juice with the highest quality parameters.
The label is bilingual, Portuguese/English or French/German, and is inspired by the Portuguese tile, a typical element of Portuguese construction. The differentiating representation of the producer's face seeks to make the connection between himself and the consumer.
Available in 500ml and 250ml dark glass bottles, with an extendable spout, which allows you to dose the oil in the desired amount.
