Do you know your Leccino from your Gaeta?
Here at Winterbotham Darby, we’re keen to share our knowledge and passion for olives with the world. Having introduced chilled olives and antipasti to the UK consumer back in the 1990s we continue to lead the way with our innovative dressings, mixes and packaging formats.
We work with over 20 olive production partners, producing over 9.2 million kg of olives each year for the UK and Eurpoean market. Traceability is at the heart of what we do, with allocated olive groves for specific retailers. We also run ‘masterclasses’ for our customers giving them an insight into how olives are grown, harvested, processed and mixed.
There are hundreds of olive types or ‘varietals’, many of which are pressed for olive oil. In our handy olive infographic you can find out more about a few of the best olives for eating. We’ve even given some handy tips on how you could eat them! You can also view this on our Olives page in more detail
