Spanish company ArteOliva recently attended the very popular trade event, Fancy Food Show, in San Francisco, and gained at least one new and very important fan: Phil Lempert. Also known as the Supermarket Guru, Lempert is considered one of the most influential food experts in the US food industry.
After being wowed by the product at the fair, he reviewed the Spanish company’s gazpacho on his popular YouTube channel, highlighting gazpacho’s growing popularity and describing ArteOliva’s product as “the real thing” and consumers’ “go-to” product. He describes it as being made in Spain with extra virgin olive oil and highlights the description of ingredients by percentage. “You’re going to think you’re sitting in Córdoba!” he says. “I’ve never tasted a gazpacho that tastes this fresh,” he adds. He includes nutritional info, such as calories, fat and sugar content, and scores it on taste, value, nutrition, ingredients, preparation, appearance, packaging and sustainability, which yields an impressive score of 94 out of a possible 10
