Oliviers&Co.’s latest collection adds a new-level of eloquence to Philippines kitchens




It’s been a little over a year since the SSI Group introduced France-based olive oil company Oliviers&Co. to the Philippines and redefined local kitchens everywhere.

Putting quality to the fore, Oliviers&Co. is renowned for its superb catalog of gourmet olive oils, condiments, and seasonings, committing to only the finest ingredients and sound processes. With sensory analyst Eric Verdier and CEO Albert Baussan as guardians of the company’s hard-earned and well-deserved reputation as the best in the industry, Oliviers&Co. continues to push for precision—from hand-harvesting the olives to tasting pre- and post-bottling with a third test at the boutiques and finally, to packaging. Verdier measures the oils “by taste, by nose, and by luminescence.”

From a humble history of affiliating with families and small cooperatives to now partnering with 300 mills in France, Spain, Italy, Greece, Croatia, and Portugal, Oliviers&Co. maintains the standards that have made them invaluable to internationally acclaimed chefs. Outlets in Central Square, Bonifacio Global City, and Greenbelt 5, Makati City, make this elegant culinary must-have accessible for Manila cuisiniers, too, and it’s quickly become a pantry staple. Now, even home kitchens can have that sophisticated touch of flavor, thanks to Oliviers&Co.




As Oliviers&Co. settles to be a regular in local cooking, the company continues to innovate and surprise the palate with new concoctions. This year, 10 new olive oils have been meticulously selected as part of a new collection that offers deeper eloquence to dishes.

The Agrolaguna is a rare oil from Croatia. Leccino and Picholine olives create a smooth but intense taste, and a flavor that’s both vegetal yet nutty makes it a versatile ingredient for vegetables, meat, cheese, and even desserts.

More delicate profiles like seafood and chicken breast benefit from an oil like the Moulin La Cravenco, which was harvested from Baux de Provence, France. It’s exceptionally creamy—almost like butter—and with sweetness reminiscent of apples, it would also complement baked goods and fruits.



Oliviers&Co. also bottle oils in the tradition of the finest wines, identified with the label “Grand Cru.” One of these is the Monva olive oil. This Spanish gem comes with robust tart notes that could certainly inject life in lighter fare or add extra zing in ice cream! The Sao Sebastiao, from Madural Cobrancosa, and Verdeal olives, hails from Portugal. Undertones of dry grass, olive leaves, and tomato leaf bring out the best sides of cooked vegetables and meats like veal, chicken, and beef.

Oliviers&Co. prepares their oils in small, limited batches, and this set is no exception. Whatever you’re cooking, you’ll find that nothing can better articulate flavors than Olivers&Co. It’s truly a testament of taste, in all aspects.
