Bilge Ozhan, the Co-founder of the brand PURA olea, has roots in the Mediterranean and for more than two decades, has called Washington home. As a passionate entrepreneur and self-proclaimed chef who is inspired by nature, Bilge loves culinary experiences and, in her own words, “Just can’t imagine a meal without olive oil.”
The story of PURA olea started in 2019 in a small orchard in the Aegean. The name “PURA olea” comes from the brand’s obsession with purity, where the only ingredient is organic olives grown with sunshine, soil, and water. Gently cold-pressed from only hand-picked, early harvest, small estate-grown olives. Unfiltered PURA olea organic extra virgin olive oil is bottled at the source to preserve its natural goodness at its peak. Presented in its exclusive bottle designed for ergonomic hold, exceptional UV protection, and a perfect pour.
Bilge and the team have founded PURA olea Organics in Seattle with a vision to make pure premium andenvironmentally conscious olive oil accessible to all culinary enthusiasts. PURA olea is inspired to bring you the joy and experience that defines wellness and tasteful memories throughout your journey through an articulately designed carbon-negative value chain.
