Posted by Texana Brands on

Olive oil has been prized for its culinary versatility for centuries. Besides its delicious flavor, this dietary fat also comes with many significant health benefits backed by scientific research and evidence. Because of this, olive oil is a world-wide favorite among foodies, culinary experts, and health enthusiasts alike. 

However, with so many different types of olive oil and brands, it can be challenging to know which one to choose. With no shortage of information available, also knowing where to start can be overwhelming. 

At Texana Brands, we've been making, bottling, and distributing extra virgin olive oil of the highest quality for years. As a trusted provider of signature extra virgin olive oil (EVOO) products, we also provide comprehensive resources that olive oil enthusiasts can rely on. 

We also believe that offering trusted and easily accessible information and resources can help you make more informed decisions about purchasing the right type of olive oil from the right brand. For these reasons, Texana Brands has put together this complete olive oil resources guide for 2023. 

Texana Brands: Our History 

Texana Brands is first and foremost a family business. Artesia Wells, TX, is where our Arbequina olive trees are planted and grown on heritage land that’s been in our family for over 125 years. 

The ‘Texana Brands’ name came from our great great grandmother, Texana Ramsey Henrichson. And, we’re honored to continue farming on this same land that was once occupied by cattle and covered in watermelons.     

Our Texana Brands family began bottling our Texas-made extra virgin olive oil in 2016 in Kyle, TX. Our facility has been our home base for marketing, bottling, and distribution ever since. At Texana Brands, we also introduced our own label and signature product line of 100% EVOO olive oils around this time. 

Texana Brands: Our Operation & Mission

Texana Brands started with the goal of educating consumers about the quality and benefits of using our extra virgin olive oil products. As farmers, our mission is to produce and distribute the highest quality extra virgin olive oil possible. 

Our Texana team is involved in the production of many orchards throughout the state of Texas beyond our own in Kyle, TX. We also offer a comprehensive range of commercial bottling, private labeling, creating custom products, and distributing services in addition to our own line. 

These services include producing infused olive oils for special events and retailer exclusives. AT Texana Brands, we have the equipment and knowledge to bottle various types of EVOO products in many different sizes, such as bulk and retail packaging. 

Olive Oil History, How Its Made, and More

Olive oil has a rich history that spans thousands of years, and it continues to be a beloved ingredient for foodies and consumers alike. Made from the fruits of olive trees, the process of making olive oil can be a fascinating journey for those who appreciate the craft. 

From harvesting the olives to pressing them into oil, to the final product being bottled for sale, each step in the process requires skilled hands and an appreciation for the taste and health benefits that olive oil can provide.
