Ellouze 1870

Ellouze 1870 logoThe Ellouze family has been growing olives on the sunny Mediterranean coast of Tunisia since 1870, when Hassan Ellouze, the great great grandfather of the current owners, first established his olive groves there. We are devoted to producing exceptional quality organic olive oil. With over a century of experience, we use our extensive knowledge of the different varieties of olive to create olive oil that stands out – both for its flavour as well as for its nutritional qualities.

We produce exceptional quality organic olive oil. Our olives are grown and processed using the highest standards of organic farming practices. They are carefully hand-picked and immediately pressed in order to retain their distinctive flavour and beneficial nutritional qualities. Our Signature olive oil has a grassy aroma with hints of green almond and artichoke, well-balanced and elegant - a fruity beginning, slightly peppery finish and high polyphenol content. Our Intense olive oil has a robust fruity flavour with hints of artichokes, tomatoes and herbs with a peppery finish and high polyphenol content. Our Delicate olive oil combines aromas of melon, apple and dry herbs with a light, creamy taste.
