A Tale of Taste, Tradition, and Quality

In the culinary world, olive oil is a staple that wields the power to transform a simple salad dressing, enrich pasta sauces, and even bring a unique twist to cakes. However, not all olive oils are created equal. The journey from olive grove to British kitchen is one of meticulous care, tradition, and quality assurance, ensuring that every drop adds a touch of Mediterranean magic to your meals.

The Quest for Quality

As British palates become increasingly sophisticated, largely thanks to celebrity chefs and a growing appreciation for Mediterranean diets, the demand for high-quality olive oil has never been higher. Consumers are now more informed about the nuances that distinguish a superior olive oil, from its harvest time and pressing process to the extraction temperatures – all of which play a critical role in defining its flavour and health benefits.

Italy, renowned as the world's second-largest producer of olive oil, leverages the European Union’s Protected Geographical Indication (IGP) to assure consumers of the authenticity and quality of its liquid gold. Extra virgin olive oil, revered for being sourced from the first mechanical pressing of the fruits without heat or chemical solvents, represents the pinnacle of olive oil quality. Governed by stringent standards, such as cold press extraction below 27°C, it’s a testament to the meticulous craftsmanship involved.

Meeting the UK’s Growing Appetite

Despite fluctuating prices, the UK's appetite for olive oil remains robust, ranking fifth in European retail sales. Italian olive oil, in particular, holds a special place in the hearts (and kitchens) of British consumers, with a significant portion of olive oil imports hailing from Italy.

Atlante UK is at the forefront of meeting this surging demand, offering an exclusive range of superior IGP category olive oils. Our selection includes 100% Italian IGP Calabrian Extra Virgin Olive Oil and brands like Terra del Re and Brogna IGP, each embodying the rich, flavourful essence of Italy.

Leveraging our deep-rooted expertise, we collaborate closely with a diverse array of producers to ensure that every bottle meets the high expectations of our customers and fits within buyers’ budgets. By simplifying supply chains and sharing insightful category trends, we aim to make sourcing quality olive oil effortless and cost-effective.
