Alive & Well Olives, distributed by Legacy III Partners, Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla., introduced probiotic-rich organic olives.

Sourced from small, family farms and village co-ops, the olives are cured using natural fermentation that creates live, active cultures similar to those found in naturally cultured yogurt, cheese and sauerkraut. Alive & Well Olives are then packed in a natural, nutrient-rich Mother Brine that enhances flavor and contains the active cultures that proliferate during fermentation.

“Alive & Well Olives, as the name implies, preserves the live, raw, fermented cultures in the fruit and in the brine,” says Sotiris Kitralikis, product innovation. “In addition to being full of nutrients, our olives have a richness and depth of flavor that comes from the terroir that is unique to each region in which these olives are grown. We are thrilled to be able to share an authentic taste of the Mediterranean with grocery shoppers in the U.S.”

Alive & Well heirloom olives comes in six varieties, and can be found in the refrigerated section of select natural grocers nationwide for $7.95 per jar.
