ABOUT THE ARTISAN OLIVE OIL COMPANY
The Artisan Olive Oil Company is an importer, wholesaler and distributor of award-winning olive oils and Mediterranean fine foods and ingredients based in London. We are extremely passionate about tasty and healthy natural products. We find rare products from small artisans who share our passion for quality and taste.
PREMIUM OLIVE OILS
We started as olive oil sommeliers, tasting a large selection of Mediterranean extra virgin olive oils. We visited many of the most awarded olive oil producers in Italy, Spain and Tunisia. We use chemical and sensory analysis to identify excellent olive oils.
MEDITERRANEAN FINE FOODS AND INGREDIENTS
We have selectively expanded our range to include dips, spreads, sauces, cooking ingredients, vinegars, jams, marmalades and chutneys.
Our business customers include delicatessen fine food and organic shops, department stores and restaurants primarily based in England.
WHAT WE OFFER?
We work very closely with our customers to ensure a successful launch of new product ranges. Marketing materials, staff training and in-store tastings are part of our standard service offering. Our warehouse and logistics services and our low minimum order size enable us to organise regular and fast deliveries.
WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT?
We are very focused on a small range of premium olive oils and Mediterranean fine foods and specialities. This enables us to offer exceptional quality, traceability and to developed a close relationship with our exclusive suppliers. We view our service as a support function for sales, marketing and sourcing for our customers.

We acquired our expertise in olive oil tasting with Olive Oil School of Spain, IRVEA – Istituto per la Ricerca e la Valorizzazione delle Eccellenze and Extra Virgin Olive Oil Savantes as well as all our producers.
