We had the good fortune of connecting with Nate Bradley and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Nate, is there something that you feel is most responsible for your success?
I truly feel that there are two really important factors that have lead to the overall success of my company. The first being our ability to offer the absolute highest quality product on the market, while simultaneously keeping our prices affordable. Secondly, we’ve been very successful in educating the public on why they should care about what we’re offering. This product education has come in the form of daily tastings, in person presentations and more recently Zoom classes. As result, the vast majority of my business comes from word of mouth and I wouldn’t want it any other way.

Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
I feel that we have the absolute highest quality olive oil and balsamic vinegar in the world. Additionally, as we’ve grown, the quality of our products have kept up. With little to no advertising, we’ve relied heavily upon word of mouth and a dedicated customer base to fuel our growth. Through education and daily tastings, we’ve created more “olive oil snobs” than almost anyone else in the world. Ultimately, the quality of our products has been the driving force of our success.

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I have to start with giving the majority of the credit to my family. Not only did they provide me with the incredible opportunity to build my brand and grow my company but they created a market and curated a line of products who’s quality is unmatched. I’d like to also thank all of the wonderful people that have worked alongside me over the years. Their passion for my products, as well as their unwavering support has played a tremendous roll in the success of Amphora. Many of these employees I consider close friends and even family.
