NEW YORK, Sept. 26, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Earlier this year, Capatriti Olive Oil teamed up with celebrity chef and owner of "Streets" restaurant in Brooklyn, NY, Roblé Ali, to create tantalizing recipes showcasing the versatility of its olive oil for a good cause. Capatriti pledged to donate $1 for every social media share, repost, or retweet of Chef Roblé's videos, to benefit God's Love We Deliver, a non-profit organization that provides nutritious meals to those suffering from critical illnesses. As a result, thousands of consumers engaged with the videos on social media and helped fuel a $5,000 donation by Capatriti Olive Oil to God's Love We Deliver.
"With the help of Chef Roblé and those who engaged with the Honest Olive Oil campaign, we have truly impacted our community in an astounding way," said Themis Kangadis, CEO of Gourmet Factory, manufacturer of Capatriti. "As a company that prides itself on transparency, honesty and good-will, I am honored to help God's Love We Deliver provide quality, nutritious and delicious meals to those in our area who are battling severe chronic illnesses."
Capatriti, Chef Roblé and God's Love We Deliver all have a common thread – and that's ensuring that their customers are afforded with the opportunity to know that the ingredients they consume are of high-quality, made with integrity, pure, and free from additives. Whether it's a bottle of Capatriti Olive Oil, delicious meals inspired by global street food at Chef Roblé's New York hot-spot restaurant, "Streets," or the healthy hand-crafted and delivered meals created by God's Love We Deliver, all three businesses are dedicated to ensuring that they provide their clientele with great food and ingredients that are delicious, nutritious and 100% authentic.
The Honest Olive Oil campaign is part of Capatriti's mission to be blunt, honest and transparent. They want consumers to know their Extra Virgin and 100% Pure Olive Oils are unadulterated – meaning they're entirely authentic and lack any fillers or additives. Thanks to their commitment to authenticity, Capatriti is the first olive oil brand to earn the coveted United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), Quality Monitoring Program (QMP) seal for both its Extra Virgin and 100% Pure Olive Oils.
"We're thrilled that our partnership with Capatriti has not only raised funds, but has also helped raise awareness for our cause. We believe food is medicine for the critically ill, and we only use quality ingredients, like authentic Capatriti Extra Virgin Olive Oil, to prepare customized, nutritious, healthy and satisfying meals for our clients," said God's Love We Deliver Chief Development Officer, David Ludwigson.
