Because quality matters
From the desire to produce and distribute excellent, sustainable and high quality food, oillive, the oil manufactory in Baselbiet, was born.
We process oil seeds, kernels and nuts from recognized organic farming in a holistic way to high-quality, cold-pressed edible oils and natural fine food specialties.
The extra virgin olive oil is produced from centuries-old olive groves in Sicily in the beautiful valley of Noto. The olives are still picked personally by hand – you are welcome to join for the next olive harvest. If you are interested, just contact us.
The quality of our culinary delights is particularly close to our hearts and since the beginning our motto has been “quality instead of mass”. We pursue the claim to extract the oil as gently as possible and thus to be able to offer a high-quality fresh product. Our natural seed, kernel and nut oils are gently pressed under 37 degrees in raw food quality, which preserves vitamins, nutrients and the typical flavor of the varieties.
We press with a water-cooled screw press to extract the oil from the raw materials. After the pressing process, the oils rest for one or two days so that the suspended matter can sediment. During this process, we do not use the usual production steps such as filtering or centrifuging. After sedimentation, we fill the oil by hand.
Since we pursue a holistic concept, we also utilize the by-products generated during the oil production. The sediment can be purchased as a pulp. And we grind the press cakes into part-deoiled, gluten-free flours that are extremely rich in protein and fiber.
Furthermore, we are constantly looking for producers who, like us, care for the raw material with love and process it with respect for nature. Accordingly, among our products you will find the excellent fine food articles of Tasting Sicily, which contain the authentic flavors of Sicily.
