Frequently Asked Questions

Our Olive Oil

What makes your olive oil unique?

We take pride in offering premium, high-quality olive oil. Our olive oil is made from carefully selected olives, cold-pressed to preserve their natural flavour and health benefits. We ensure strict quality control at every stage of production to deliver the finest olive oil to your doorstep.

What type of olive oil do you offer?

At Ellouze 1870, we currently offer three types that cater to a variety of culinary uses and taste profiles and showcase the exceptional quality of our hand-picked olives. Visit our Shop page to find out more.

Is your olive oil sourced sustainably?

Yes, sustainability is ingrained in what we do. Because we farm and mill our own olives, we own our supply chain. We are committed not only to producing premium quality olive oil but also to ensuring that the production remains sustainable for future generations. We marry traditional farming practices, such as the hand-picking of olives, with modern technologies, such as solar-powered irrigation and processing waste products into bio-fuel which is used in the mill. We seek to minimise the use of plastics in our packaging and we offer refill bags so that bottles can be reused.

How should I store my olive oil to maintain its quality?

To preserve the freshness and flavor of our olive oil, store it in a cool, dark place away from direct sunlight and heat. Olive oil is best when consumed within 18 to 24 months of purchase.
