Pompeian, Inc. Introduces Personalized Extra Virgin Olive Oil Bottles Just in Time for the Holiday Season

First 500 Consumers Receive Free Customized Bottle

BALTIMORE, MD--(Marketwired - Nov 10, 2014) - According to a recent survey1, nearly 40% of people say they have ruined a family dish when trying to 'wing it' without a recipe. So just in time for the holidays, Pompeian is coming to the rescue with fully customizable bottles of Extra Virgin Olive Oil that incorporate your favorite recipe and family photo, ensuring that cherished family recipes are always within arms reach. Beginning today, America's number one selling brand of Extra Virgin Olive Oil is offering the personalized bottles at Pompeian.com and Facebook.com/Pompeian. The first 500 people to create their own label will receive a bottle compliments of Pompeian, perfect for commemorating a treasured dish or gifting to a loved one this holiday season.

"We know how much time and effort goes into putting a holiday dinner on the table -- in fact, our survey uncovered it takes on average five hours to prepare and cook a holiday meal," said David Bensadoun, Pompeian, Inc. Chief Executive Officer. "Our personalized bottles will not only help home cooks feel confident while preparing family dishes, but also provide a fun and festive way to share these recipes with loved ones."

While there is typically one designated chef per family, the holidays are a great time to gather in the kitchen and pass on family traditions. Pompeian's survey revealed the top reasons people pass down family recipes to other members of their family, which include: when they want to pass on the responsibility (27%), when they reach a certain age (21%) and when they have a family of their own (21%). No matter the reason, Pompeian's personalized recipe bottle is the perfect gift idea for families that are ready to pass on their most treasured holiday dishes. 

Simply visit Pompeian.com or Facebook.com/Pompeian to create a personalized bottle of Pompeian Extra Virgin Olive Oil with a cherished family recipe and photo.
