Morocco Gold Extra Virgin Olive Oil And The Mediterranean Diet This 4th July

If we have convinced you to grab a bottle of extra virgin olive oil for your Independence Day cooking, why not extend the health benefits to following the principles of The Mediterranean Diet for the rest of the year?

The popularity of The Mediterranean Diet has not waned and its reliance on fresh fruit, vegetables, nuts, grains and olive oil has stood the test of time. Although The Mediterranean Diet was officially recognised in the 1960s as a healthy eating plan, its origins date back hundreds, if not thousands of years. The Mediterranean Diet refers to the nutritional and – crucially – lifestyle habits of those living near and around The Mediterranean Sea.

As you prepare to celebrate 4th July with friends, family and loved ones, we at Morocco Gold extra virgin olive oil wanted to reflect on the special history between the USA and Morocco – the first nation to recognise the United States as an independent sovereign country in 1777.

If you’re planning a family feast this 4th July, why not bring a little bit of Moroccan culture to the table with a splash of the best extra virgin olive oil on your al fresco feast.

The Special Morocco – US Relationship.

According to Forbes, Morocco has enjoyed a vibrant relationship with the United States since time immemorial. In 1777, Morocco was the first country in the world to formally acknowledge the United States as an independent nation.

The Moroccan-American Treaty of Friendship stands as the U.S.’s oldest non-broken friendship treaty. Signed by John Adams and Thomas Jefferson, it has been in continuous effect since 1786. Following the re-organization of the U.S federal government upon the 1787 Constitution, President George Washington wrote a now venerated letter to the Sultan Sidi Mohamed strengthening the ties between the two countries.

In the beginning of the American Revolution, American merchant ships were subject to attack by the Barbara Pirates while sailing the Atlantic Ocean. At this time, American envoys tried to obtain protection from European powers, but to no avail. On December 20, 1777, Morocco’s Sultan Mohammed III declared that the American merchant ships would be under the protection of the sultanate and could thus enjoy safe passage.

A vital element of the Morocco/ US relationship is the fact that both countries are bound by a Free Trade Agreement (FTA) that guarantees free flow of business between the two nations.
