We at Bella Vado are Passionate about the health benefis of this ancient fruit (yes, avocados are a fruit!) whose history dates back to the Aztecs
Today, avocado oil is recognized as one of the healthiest oils on the market by Dr. Oz, high in monounsaturated fat and natural tocopherols. In addition, it is free of trans fatty acids and cholesterol- inducing fats. Bella Vado oil is 100% natural-no preservatives, refinements or additives

Our avocado oil is cold-pressed using modern equipment imported from Italy. This process preserves all the natural vitamins, which are believed to lower LDL levels. Recent studies show that avocado oil can reduce the risk of type2 diabets and prostate incidence

We don't bottle Bella Vado oil until you ask for it - just another way we cater to great taste and undeniable quality. Our products are fresh from our grove to your home.

This unique nutty-flavored oil can be used in variety of ways - blend it with whipped potatoes, drizzle it over steamed vegetables, use it in vinaigrette dressings, flavor soups or sweets. Avocado oil has very high smoke point(+500F/255c)--perfect for cooking!

Its exquisite texture and luscious, bold taste make it undeniably the most splended oil for the most discerning chefs of all skill levels.
We are fanatics about providing a high quality, local product. We are extremely proud of the fact that we are both a grower and manufacturer. This unique positon enables our family to not only oversee every aspect of the operation but to actively participate. The da Silva family members oversee the process of our avocado oil production. For our customers, this means you get a hand crafted product. We do not mass produce our oils, but carefully select the fruit that will be pressed into this luscious product.

Ensuring a quality oil production process takes both scientific knowledge and ancient artistic practices. We spend significant amounts of time researching and reviewing available information to ensure we are producing the highest quality oil with the strictest of manufacturing standards given the latest research and information

We don't bottle your oil until we recive your order. This practice protects the oil by ensuring it is stored most effectively before bottling. This practice helps to protect the quality of the product and provide a desirable shelf life.

We value our customers and want them to experience the healthy properties of this ancient fruit. Our mission is to provide the consumer with the highest quality product available on the market
