About Olive Oil & Beyond
Fresh. Natural.

Our Philosophy

With a culture richly valued for its diversity of foods, impeccable attention to hospitality, and a lifestyle that’s organically holistic in its approach, Matthew Pour’s Persian roots are at the heart of Olive Oil & Beyond. With over 30 years of experience in international trade, Matthew developed his relationships, many who are artisans by trade, to gain access to some of the world’s best specialty ingredients.

He is an olive oil expert & a master taster.

Food as medicine is his mantra. Matthew believes culinary creations of Mediterranean foods are not only simple, elegant and delicious, but are also composed of ingredients that naturally nourish and heal the body. Like olive oil… but not just any olive oil. Monocultivar extra virgin olive oils are our specialty—raw, unadulterated, and 100% first-pressed producing the highest levels of flavor, nutrients and antioxidants. That’s because we source from only small artisan growers who are dedicated to tradition and craftsmanship from grove to bottle.

Whether from Spain, Italy, Greece, Portugal, Tunisia, France, California, Chile, Argentina, Peru or Australia, our growers use only sustainable methods, harvested by hand at optimum ripeness, and closely monitored during every phase of the milling process. But we don’t stop there. Before we import and showcase them in our showrooms we test their chemical composition to further validate freshness, quality and nutritional value. We visit our producers in person frequently and taste and evaluate over 1000 different varieties/style of olive oils every season. This is dedication and respect to our products and to our customers. This philosophy is Olive Oil & Beyond®.

Our mission is simple: provide the freshest and healthiest products to support the Mediterranean diet and lifestyle. Combined with a welcoming and knowledgeable staff and an abundance of delicious samplings, it’s an experience that’s unique to only Olive Oil & Beyond®.
