Have you enjoyed the exceptional flavor of a Chilean extra virgin olive oil? If so, you can thank our truly delicious Chilean olives! Our sophisticated harvesting methods are designed to capture their best fresh flavor. What makes our olives so great, you say? We’re glad you asked!
A healthy olive tree produces great olives. The olive groves in Chilean valleys are protected by the Andes Mountains to the East, the Pacific Ocean to the West, the Atacama Desert in the North and Patagonia in the south. These natural boundaries form a shelter to grow any cultivar under optimal growing conditions.

Our olives feel good about themselves, and with good reason! Year after year, our Chilean extra virgin olive oils receive recognition and awards from the most prestigious competitions and taste-makers:
