Positively Good for You – deliciously high in antioxidants.
Our ethos is to bring to market only naturally, positively good for you foods that celebrate the Mediterranean diet – a diet which is recognised as one of the healthiest in the world.
So we’re thrilled to introduce our first products – six delicious, Italian, naturally flavoured, single estate, extra virgin olive oils presented in 250ml glass bottles and a 750ml, single-estate, extra virgin olive oil, for everyday enjoyment – also in a glass bottle.
Our search for these exceptional olive oils led us on a journey across the Mediterranean until we arrived in the beautiful Calabria region of Southern Italy.
Here we found the Pata family olive groves in the ancient town of Monte Poro where they’ve lovingly nurtured and created oils of exceptional taste and quality in the traditional way since 1910.
Made solely from olives of the Ottobratica variety, Positively Good for You oils are high in polyphenol antioxidants for a healthy heart.*
Harvested as the olives turn a beautiful rainbow of greens and purples, they are pressed and bottled within hours of harvest with the olives for our flavoured oils combined “agrumato” in the traditional Italian way with the whole fresh fruits or herbs, producing an exceptional oil fusion which is perfect for cooking, dressings or drizzled over salads, vegetables, pasta, fish and meat, adding zest to every dish.
Our extra virgin olive oil is vibrant, fresh and grassy and perfect for everyday use providing a wonderful synergy of health and taste.
