Kosterina, bringing the best parts of the Mediterranean lifestyle by offering ultra premium extra virgin olive oils, gourmet Mediterranean food products and a natural olive oil-based skincare line, makes its debut in all Sprouts stores across the country.
Founded by Greek-American olive oil sommelier Katerina (Katina) Mountanos, Kosterina is known for their signature best-selling Original Extra Virgin Olive Oil, which is one of several products launching at Sprouts, debuting in beautiful and convenient new aluminum tin packaging for the first time. A rarity in olive oil production, Kosterina’s Original Extra Virgin Olive Oil is made with 100 percent Koroneiki olives, considered some of the best olives in the world, and they are harvested while they’re still green, allowing for a higher concentration of polyphenols, powerful antioxidants that are known to protect against the development of chronic diseases. The result is a more healthful and complex flavored olive oil that has built a cult following and is consistently ranked as one of the best olive oils on the market.
Kosterina products launching in Sprouts include:
- Original Extra Virgin Olive Oil($22.99, 500ml) – available in beautiful, safe and convenient aluminum tin packaging for the first time, the Original Extra Virgin Olive Oil is Kosterina’s hero product and original inspiration for the brand. It has a robust flavor and a signature peppery finish.
- Everyday Extra Virgin Olive Oil ($16.99, 500ml) – Designed specifically for cooking, offering a more subtle flavor, while still maintaining Kosterina’s high quality standards. The Everyday is also launching in new aluminum tin packaging.
- Garlic Olive Oil($22.99, 500ml) – A flavored olive oil made with Kosterina’s signature Extra Virgin Olive Oil combined with garlic oil, Kosterina’s Garlic Olive Oil adds a punchy garlic flavor and is perfect to use as a base for cooking vegetables, dipping bread and more.
- Kosterina’s Crushed Fruit Vinegars($11.99) – Available in flavors Strawberry, Tangerine and Blueberry, the vinegars are made with white balsamic grape must from Italy, white wine vinegar from Greece and crushed fruit. They are the ideal combination of tangy and sweet (with no added sugars) and can be used in salads, dessert, cocktails and mocktails.
“We’re thrilled to be bringing some of our best-selling products to Sprouts in brand new sustainable tin packaging,” said Kosterina’s founder Katina Mountanos. “The store’s commitment to high-quality and farm-fresh ingredients, healthful food and overall wellness is something our team resonates closely with, and we’re eager to see how Sprouts customers welcome Kosterina into their daily kitchen and wellness routines.”
Originally founded in 2020, Kosterina helped launch the premium olive oil category in the US and continues to be a leader in that category today, while expanding into a cross-category lifestyle brand embracing the Mediterranean lifestyle. In addition to Sprouts, Kosterina’s signature Extra Virgin Olive Oils and specialty vinegars are available in Whole Foods stores nationwide, and its recently introduced jarred olives are launching in Whole Foods this year. Alongside its food offerings, Kosterina has a successful olive oil-based beauty and skincare line, featuring body oils, face oils, moisturizing balms and deodorant, with additional products slated to launch in 2024.
