The collective mission of the OLiV Team is to provide you with the “Wow” experience while helping you eat healthier, better and more naturally. Our complete line of Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO) and true Balsamic Vinegar are all natural products and serve as an example of our commitment to you.
But, OLiV has also made our products more useful and convenient for everyday cooking by using our proprietary formulas to flavour our products with natural essential oils. Now, with a simple sprinkle of oil – you can naturally flavour your food with everything from herbal flavours, to spicy intrigue, to fruity and light – depending on your mood in the moment and the food you are preparing. We want to help you move your meal from the ordinary to the extraordinary and you from a simple cook to a ‘Rock Star in the kitchen’.
The OLiV Team is always here to help you with your choices of flavour pairings and recipe ideas. We hope this little book will help introduce you to a whole new way of eating heathy with flavour and flair for a whole new happy and healthy you!
As the philosopher Aristotle once said, “We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, therefore, is not an act – but a habit.” At the OLiV Tasting Room™ our Team strives to bring you an excellent experience with excellent products repeatedly because we want OLiV to become your healthy lifestyle habit! We start with our “Branch to Bottle” Story.
The fact that OLiV International is built on a Christian foundation was my first ‘check-off’ to be part of this family and with the high quality of the products and health benefits that OLiV offers, the rest was easy. As a wife and mother, I want to bring health into my home and OLiV has become an extension of my home. The fact that our product has its roots from South Africa has only ignited my passion for the workplace and the joy I have for serving others in a field that I feel related to.
By profession I’m a teacher and OLiV gives me the opportunity to teach customers about the product. With the support from a loving husband and an amazing working staff, I am blessed with the wonderful opportunity to help you experience what we have to offer. Making sure that you as the customer feels at home and welcome is our number one priorty here at OLiV. We hope that you will feel more like an addition to the family than just an everyday customer. That’s what OLiV is to me, a family.
