Our extra virgin olive oil is produced from 5 traditional varieties of trees, each perfectly suited to the cool climate and volcanic soil of north-western Tasmania.
Varieties are Sevillano and Manzanillo, Paragon, Verdale and Californian Queen – a hybrid which has only 4% yield but is of outstanding quality.
The international standard for extra virgin olive oil is less than 0.8% free fatty acid level. The extra virgin olive oil from Cradle Coast Olives has been tested at less than 0.1% free fatty acid level.
This is a world-ranking, high standard for quality, and significantly exceeds the nutritional rating of brand-name olive oils found on supermarket shelves.
