Our Story




Olivo Fresco, 81 Florence Drive, Oakville

Welcome to our unique store!  Drop by soon for a complimentary tasting of our olive oils and balsamic vinegars.

 

Olivo Fresco carries several types of single cultivars or varieties of extra virgin olive oil. While some olive oils available in grocery stores claim to be extra virgin, they sometimes aren't. Unfortunately for the consumer, adulterated, inferior products are passed off as real extra virgin olive oil. Each of our oils has its own special character, personality, and chemistry. The crucial crush dates , full chemistry and flavour notes are on display. We are able to access olive oil from both hemispheres so our product line up is always changing with the harvest, ensuring that the oils are always fresh!

 

Our staff is passionate about educating customers on the special qualities of the olive oils, but in the end, it is the fresh magical taste that wins people over. If you have never had the chance to try pure fresh extra virgin olive you are missing out on one of life’s greatest pure culinary treats! The extraordinary health benefits associated with the consumption of fresh, pure extra virgin olive oil are well documented. This golden elixir has been thought to help fight cancer, control diabetes, protect cell membranes from free radicals, assist digestion, stave off osteoporosis and rheumatoid arthritis, reduce blood pressure, protect against strokes and may protect skin from the aging effects of the sun.


Olivo Fresco's supplier, Veronica Foods, sources the very best oils and vinegars from around the globe for us. 

 

Lining the warm yellow walls are gleaming stainless steel “fusti” that serve to hold and protect the precious olive oils . Along with the extra virgin olive oils, naturally flavoured olive oils can be sampled here. Twelve different blends of all natural flavours coupled with extra virgin olive oil delight the senses and inspire the imagination. From the classic Tuscan Herb to the spicy Harissa, the applications of these oils are innumerable.

 

We also proudly carry more than 20 flavours of dark and white balsamic vinegar, all from Modena, Italy. The Traditional Style vinegar is aged for up to 18 years using the “Solera” method in wooden barrels. Rich and complex, it also serves as the base for several exotic all natural flavours such as fig, espresso, chocolate, violet and maple.Our balsamics contain no caramel colour, no added sugar and no thickeners!Paired with olive oil, they can be used for bread dipping, salad dressings or alone as a spectacular topping for ice cream, cake, yoghurt, fresh berries and fruit. The vinegars also take marinades and sauces to the next level. The White Balsamics are delightfully tart and are also naturally flavoured  and make great additions in vinaigrettes paired with olive oil.
