The Brightland Origin Story
After Aishwarya Iyer and her husband started getting into cooking, they became unwilling detectives in the case of the rancid ingredient. It’s always the one you least suspect, and just as true in this case, their “extra-virgin” olive oil was the guilty party. Iyer found that according to the UC Davis Olive Center, 70% of imported olive oil fails the industry standards for extra-virgin rating, yet receives the title anyway. These oils contain defects and additives like vegetable oils that can ruin the product’s overall integrity, nutritional value, and taste.
Enlightened by this knowledge, Iyer founded Brightland, and introduced a combination of savor-worthy natural flavors and collaborative, health-focused sourcing practices to a largely artificial industry.
Brightland olives and fruits are sourced directly from family farms in California’s Central Coast. Custom-blended into delicious oils and vinegars, they contain no fillers, additives, or artificial preservatives. The difference in quality is unbelievable, and with every bite you can taste Brightland’s devotion.
