My love for olives was born over a game of Rock, Paper, Scissors. I am serious. It was me or my best mate who was going to buy the first load for us to try. Luckily, I won, and I had my first introduction to the wondrous olive world. I'll never forget those big, juicy olives - their delicious flavour, crunchy texture and perfectly balanced marinades. (I also managed to keep a few pounds in my pocket - always go rock!)
However, I soon realized that not every olive gave me the same reaction. I learnt that companies committed olive treason by pasteurizing them, adding artificial preservatives and mixing them with dull ingredients. It was time for me to stand up for my olive comrades and do what was right – get my Olly’s Olives "Marination for the Nation" on!
It seems like a long time ago that I was mixing olives in my parents’ kitchen and getting an earful for staining the wooden floors. But, I can finally introduce you all to the product that is going to revolutionize the olive market. Our promise - never to pasteurize our olives, to make sure that every pouch oozes freshness and that you can also be introduced to the wondrous olive world (because everyone comes round to it eventually!)
