Idyll sources pure foods direct from Greece – organic extra virgin olive oil, vinegar, honey and salt. Our mission is to support small-scale organic producers by sharing their unique yet elemental foods with the American market, taking care to keep our operation as pure and healthy as our products.
Our company imports Greek extra virgin olive oil, vinegar, honey, and salt to the US. The foundation of our business is our partnerships with our Greek producers; we source from them personally to ensure that they practice organic agriculture that works with the environment instead of just taking from it. We try to package our goods in containers that are reusable or recyclable, and we offset our shipping emissions. On the consumer end, we make our environmental commitments clear to our customers and encourage them to reflect on the origins of their foods and take actions like replacing dairy-based butter with olive oil in their diet, to both improve their health and reduce their environmental footprint.
“We try to operate in line with our ethics of sustainability – environmental, social, and economic – in every aspect of our business. We source our foods from producers who practice environmentally responsible agriculture, and we try to make low-impact choices when it comes to packaging and operations. However, shipping is an unavoidable part of international trade, and we wanted to mitigate the emissions associated with that aspect of our business. After careful research, we chose Carbonfund.org because of its strong certifications and because we could choose to put our contribution towards a specific cause that we believe in – reforestation and avoided deforestation.” – Tess O’Connor, Vice President
