While the story of OLiV began in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan where its founding partner opened the first OLiV Tasting Room retail store in 2011, originally using the olives harvested from his South African farm, the story has evolved to “un monde de saveurs” – a “World of Flavours” with OLiV stores located across 5 provinces of Canada. And, an online retail shopping experience.
As well, OLiV has developed a number of wholesale partners who offer the product as part of their own retail store experience. Every day, new customers are discovering the quality and flavour of OLiV and returning customers continue to explore the thousands of flavour combinations that can be created using OLiV’s exceptional products.
We work directly with our suppliers to ensure that the highest quality of extra virgin olive oil (EVOO) and true balsamic vinegar (from the Modena region of Italy) is presented to our customers. This “branch to bottle” approach has become the mantra of our company to ensure a strong and consistent supply chain, with a high quality of product.
Using a base product that is created by our olive farm experts to our specifications, OLiV infuses these with our proprietary natural flavours to create an exceptional “WOW” experience for our customers. Each batch bottled (in Canada) is specifically tasted by our flavour specialists to ensure you receive the highest quality and best culinary experience possible.
OLiV distinguishes itself from its major competitors by importing only the base EVOO and Balsamic Vinegar raw products, then flavours and bottles in the Niagara Region of Canada, making them “Products of Canada”, which supports our Canadian manufacturing economy. OLiV’s flavour specialists work with our Canadian flavour house partners to create our unique natural taste.
Our cultivars (first press Extra Virgin Olive Oil) are sourced from different countries around the world, depending on the availability, harvest times and quality of harvest. This allows OLiV to meet customer demand that a single source supplier cannot achieve.
And, OLiV continues to grow. Using our experience and expertise, OLiV has created a line of skin care that is “Made in Canada”. People love the moisturizing and natural softness our products provide. As always, our skin care is created from natural ingredients.
For those who like to entertain, OLiV has a number of olive wood accessories, easy to make recipes and a variety of hints. Take some time to browse our site to learn more about the amazing “World of Flavours”, that is OLiV!
