Featured Customer: Elly Olive Oil

At ClearBags we may seem biased because we love all things sweet, but we also adore savory! Like peanut butter and jelly, nothing goes better together than olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Combine that with perfectly portioned, single use bottles and you get *insert cliche Italian fingertip kiss*. Read our interview with Margot to learn about her business!

Tell Us a Little about Your Company:

Who Is Elly Olive Oil?. My idea was to create a single serving of a perfectly proportioned blend of extra virgin olive oil and balsamic vinegar designed as a vinaigrette for a salad, bread dipping or a complement to any entree or appetizer. I wanted the vinaigrette to come in an environmentally friendly glass bottle that is both recyclable and reusable with a tamper evident cap. I also wanted the quality of the ingredients and the packaging to be exceptional. I wanted the brand name and logo to have a trendy, vibrant, classy look. With much passion, enthusiasm and research needed to complete my idea, I found no room for compromise. One year later with my Mom’s creative input, I completed my idea, bringing an individual serving size of Elly Olive Oil Balsamic Vinaigrette’s to you, your home and your friends for any and all occasions. The name “Elly” comes from the Greek word for Olives, Elies!

What one piece of packaging advice would you give to other business owners?

The one piece of advice I would give to other business owners is to follow through with how they want their product to look in a package and be presented to their customers. Business owners should continue to search until they find the right packaging and also listen to the advice of the packaging experts, such as ClearBags. They can advise and enlighten businesses on how to enhance their product with their packaging.
