Calamata Olives – Plump, Palate-Pleasing, and Purple
Calamata olives are named for a region in Greece renowned for its olives and olive oil. In fact, these plump, succulent, and richly flavorful fruits are also known as Greek olives. If you’ve ever eaten a traditional Greek salad, you know what a distinct, smoky-yet-fruity component calamata olives can bring to the table. At Gourmet Factory, we have a passion for providing Mediterranean-inspired foods to our customers throughout the United States, which is why we offer delicious, pitted Greek olives in a variety of sizes.
