The quality section of our homepage quotes John Ruskin's Common Law of Business Balance: "It’s unwise to pay too much, but it’s worse to pay too little." When you pay too much, you lose a little money – that is all. When you pay too little, you sometimes lose everything, because the thing you bought was incapable of doing the thing it was bought to do. The common law of business balance prohibits paying a little and getting a lot — it can’t be done. If you deal with the lowest bidder, it is well to add something for the risk you run, and if you do that you will have enough to pay for something better." We would like to take up this point, because especially in the trade with vegetable oils for all uses, quality must be the first and foremost priority.
Together with our strategic partners, we have made a commitment to delivering 100% quality and not accept any compromises when it comes to the high grade of our oils.
Of course, quality comes at a price nowadays, but you will notice more than just the quality of the oil. It comes together with our openness, transparency and our service, which we include as a matter of course.
All products, for one-off projects as well as contracts, can be traced back all the way to their source, and we are happy to give you an insight into our supply chain. Besides the continuous controls and audits, this constitutes a quality benchmark in its own right.
Especially olive oils frequently receive criticism regarding their purity and source. Clues for finding a good olive oil are the indications on the label and the corresponding price. We guarantee that our oils are 100 % pure.
If you require an oil or fat mixture for a recipe, we will use your recipe as a basis for our analytics and labelling obligation. When it comes to delivering quality, compromises are not acceptable.
Almond oil from Sicily, olive oil from Liguria, apricot kernel oil from Turkey, or hazelnut oil from France. Despite our large number of sourcing countries, the qualified OPW Ingredients team keeps track of everything and sources the raw materials for its high-quality oils together with its local production partners in a thorough and sustainable manner.
The more we learn about the growing, harvesting and, finally, pressing procedures, the more we know about the precise quality of our oils. We go these extra steps for the sake of our commitment to openness and transparency.
If you have questions about the various quality grades of our oils, or if you require data sheets, analyses or statements, please do not hesitate to get in touch with us any time.
