In 1624, John Donne, English author, stated, “No man is an island.” … goes for this female leader, too!

I reached out for guidance, inspiration, and support when entering the Food & Beverage Industry. Family, friends, and colleagues shared their patience, expectations, wisdom, and honest reflections. They were my taste testers, sound boards, paid expert, or simply the person who shared my dreams for Calizo Condiments.

As a result, the GOLDEN OLIVE AWARD evolved as an annual gratitude event to thank individuals and/or organizations who extend their strength to Calizo. Simultaneously, the Philanthropy Program emerged where annually an organization is selected to receive $5,000 for a special project to help others.
