100% ALL-NATURAL olives form the Food Philosopher are, quite simply, exceptional! Enjoy olives that are naturally-aged over many months, without the use of harsh chemicals, such as sodium hydroxide, to rapidly accelerate their maturation. They’re also free of the artificial colours and preservatives used in supermarket olives to standardise their taste and appearance. All this makes for a naturally-flavoured olive with great taste and texture.

A (not-so) FUN FACT! Did you know that sodium hydroxide and other chemicals are used to rapidly-age many supermarket olives over a matter of just a few weeks? This diminishes their flavour and texture and is one of the key differences between a small-batch and mass-produced olive..  

Small Batch Pitted Greek Green Olives 

With a focus on all-natural ingredients without any preservatives, stabilisers and colours our small-batch olives truly are the real deal.... Introducing our premium, Amfissis pitted green olives harvested from our country groves in gorgeous Messolonghi! The Amfissis olive variety is regarded as the ‘king of green olives’ owing to its fantastic flavour and firm, meaty flesh!

All Natural Whole Greek Kalamata Olives

PERTH'S BEST Kalamata olives! They’re 100% chemical-free and naturally aged over a long period for superior flavour and texture.  Food Philosopher olives are all properly barrel aged (6 month minimum)!

Small Batch Greek Olive Oil 500ml

The Food Philosopher creates bona fide, small-batch EVOO. All the olives have been sole sourced . These 100% premium olives are picked with care using delicate, small-scale harvest techniques, including hand rakes that bear no semblance to the mass-scale harvesting of the big, commercial growers. 
To put it plainly, this kind of EVOO is only achievable from genuine, small-scale country growers that treat each of their olives like their own babies. 
Like all premium EVOOs, you do it justice by using it as a fabulous garnish or side. The olive oil gods will cry if they ever catch you using this precious liquid in high-temperature cooking! So, please enjoy this marvellous and very unique product.
