2016 Olive NZ Awards

he 2016 awards were held last weekend and again we were awarded a Gold Medal and  Best in Class of the Golds  for our Manzanilla single variety oil.

Banks Peninsula produces amazingly well balanced medium and intense flavoured oils. We have top medals each year except 2012 when there was little to no harvest.  We take a pride the post harvest storage of our oils to ensure that our oils retain the wonderful flavours.

Extra Virgin Olive Oil has been shown to be the most important ingredient in the Mediterranean food diet and health research is increasingly indicating broad health benefits from high polyphenolic extra virgin olive oils such as those we produce.  This  reducing heart disease, fatty liver, alzheimers and depression.
