Joie d’Olives is a business run by Kristen Smart, supplied by Veronica Foods Inc. Veronica supplies some 700 Olive Oil and Balsamic Vinegar tasting bars in North America, and her company takes great pains to ensure that all of the products they supply are genuine and of the highest quality.
My family and I have been enjoying Olive Oils and Balsamic Vinegars from Liquid Gold in Charlottetown, which is another Veronica Foods supplied company, for years. From salad dressings to cooking and even to drinks we were amazed at how delicious these products are. We saw that there while there are some stores like this in the downtown core, the West Island had a complete dearth of high-quality Olive Oil and Balsamic Vinegar stores.
Taking advantage of having a cousin in Toronto who has his own Veronica Foods supplied store, My Olive, I went to work with him for a week to become even more acquainted with the product and the running of a store. I came away from that experience determined to bring these tastes and flavors of genuine Extra Virgin Olive Oils and Balsamic Vinegars to the Montreal West Island community.
