Table Olives

Olives from the Mediterranean region taste just like freshly picked olives – available in large stand-up pouches.

  • Spain

     

    The world’s largest producer of olives: the most important cultivation region is Andalusia.

     

    • Hojiblanca: firm, crunchy variety of olive with high oil content. Outstandingly suitable for processing (pitted, stuffed, in slices).
    • Manzanilla: rather soft with extremely low oil content. Very popular due to its nut-like flavour.
    • Gordal Reina: the “Queen” of olives; extra-large and very succulent.
  • Greece

     

    The Peloponnese is the home of the famous Kalamata olive. Numerous other varieties stem from the cultivation areas near Larissa and Thessaloniki.

     

    • Chalkidiki: long, pointed shape. Firm consistency and usually harvested extra-large. Especially suited for stuffing with whole almonds, garlic, jalapeño peppers and chili peppers. The slightly reddish colour around the stone is typical.
    • Kalamata: dark purple, tree-ripened fruit. Wonderfully intense and yet pleasantly mellow aroma. It is a very special treat in the truest sense of the word.
    • Amphisis: soft, tree-ripened olive. Aficionados appreciate the wonderfully intensive aroma. Not suitable for processing.
  • Italy

     

    Not merely known for its outstanding olive oil, but also for its delicious table olives

     

    • Leccino: tree-ripened, hand-picked olive from the Abruzzo region. Convincing through its mild and fruity flavour.
    • Nocellara: considered to be one of the best olives in Sicily and cultivated for hundreds of years in the Trapani region. Perfect with antipasti!
  • Marocco

     

    Famous for its sundried, wrinkled olives

     

    • À la Grecque: dried like a raisin. The freshly harvested olives are traditionally preserved in salt layer by layer and led through the fermentation process in this way. This results in unique olives with a very intensive aroma.

Cielos

A crunchy snack: sun-ripened olives in a crunchy crust.

Cielos, crunchy olives! Cielos are carefully air-dried olives without stone wrapped with a crunchy crust of rice flour. Cielos are globally unique and offer a completely new taste experience - the first olive snack with a “crunch”! The innovation from Switzerland is the ideal snack for an aperitif party or barbecue evening, and is also ideally suited as a light companion for those on the go. The five varieties Paprika, À la Pizza, Sour Cream & Onion, Indian Curry and Wasabi are available in practical stand-up pouches.
