Why is there a plastic piece inside some of your jars?
The piece is called a sifter and is intentionally placed in certain jars to keep the product beneath its brine marinade so as to properly preserve it.
Do your olives need to be refrigerated after I have opened the container?
No. Neither our jars of olives nor our plastic tubs need be refrigerated. So long as the olives are submerged in their brine marinade and kept out of heat and direct sunlight, they will last up to 6 months at room temperature.
Do your marinated olives need to be refrigerated after I have opened the container?
