In the early 90s, Giles and Annie Henschel embarked on a year-long adventure that would be the inspiration for Olives Et Al. Travelling on motorbikes through the Mediterranean, the Middle East and North Africa, they fell in love with the food they ate along the way. They couldn’t gather many souvenirs, being on bikes, but did gather recipes.
On their return, using all the knowledge they’d collected during their travels, they launched Olives Et Al.
Over time, the range of products has grown and now includes top notch Oils, Speciality Olives, Sauces, Snacks, Kiln Roasted Nuts and Dressings and Marinades. We’re also always looking for more to share and excite, including our Craft Gin made from ‘waste’ Olive Brine which won the World Food Innovation Awards in 2020
One thing you can be assured of is that quality and authenticity will never be compromised for the sake of production. There are now a bunch of us Oliveers busy Oliveering away and we all love what we do.
