The Extra Virgin Olive Oils found at The Pristine Olive
define a new category of olive oil which is well beyond the current
Extra Virgin standards. Our standards were developed to define and
distinguish the freshest, highest quality olive oil in the world, by
separating the "Good" from the "Great" with third party sensory

Olive is the only place in London which can offer their customers the
ultimate in olive oil flavour, authenticity, and tree to bottle
transparency. While others still use meaningless “best before dates”, we want you to know when your olive oil was crushed!

higher standards, etc. There are now more customers aware of the
problems in the olive oil industry and are actively seeking answers.
Our goal at The Pristine Olive is to educate each customer by allowing
them to experience what high quality olive oil should taste like. But,
we also educate the customer on Why it tastes better!
