Sharing our

Mediterranean Heritage

Coccinella is the Latin word for “ladybug.”  By consumption of plant-eating insects, it protects crops around the world, contributing to a healthy environment.  This small creature’s energy, vitality, and bold coloring inspire our products.  Its symbolism of good fortune and prosperity is the reason we’ve chosen the name Coccinella Mediterranean Heritage.

Our Story

extra virgin olive oilv

Coccinella Mediterranean Heritage is a family-owned business created to share the Mediterranean lifestyle with our community.


Several years ago, our family hosted a student from Italy as part of an educational exchange program. This experience showed us the benefit of being immersed in another culture.  So much so that we chose to send our sons to attend high school and college in the United States. They enjoyed building new friendships, learning new a language, and experiencing other cultural traditions. During our frequent visits, we experienced the warm hospitality of their teachers, friends, and families.


Thus a desire to share our favorite traditions and beautiful products from the Mediterranean with our new home in the United States was sparked.  After years of managing successful companies in Turkey, our home country, we began this exciting new endeavor that combines our business experience and passion for our proud Mediterranean heritage!


Coccinella Mediterranean Heritage offers only the highest quality products representing the best of Mediterranean culture. We hope they inspire you to enjoy and embrace this vibrant lifestyle, and that it brings you good fortune and prosperity.
