Olives & Oils
Meet The Owners
Established by Alex and Carwyn in 2003 the business was inspired by a perfectly timed visit to Alex’s Dad’s Olive Finca just south of Barcelona in the beautiful Tarragona region of Catalonia. The finca had around 150 trees that were in full fruit and ready for picking during the late October (2002) visit, and from that point we became hooked on the whole culture and production of olives.
On returning to the UK we swiftly set up our business visiting food fairs and farmers markets across Wales. The Deli opened in 2006 and we have loved every minute of our food journey every since.
Established in 2003 as a family business selling loose olives in local street markets, we branched out in 2006 to open our delicatessen shop in Newton Road, Mumbles. More recently we have, due entirely to high demand, become specialists in Welsh & French Cheeses. We pride ourselves on our personal service and an exhaustive knowledge of the products we sell, Why don’t you see for yourself and pop in to our shop and try us out…? We’d love to meet you
Our cheese selection is continually evolving as we continue to work closely with producers and speciality importers. With between 70 – 100 cheeses on display daily we stock a collection of French, Welsh, British, Spanish, Swiss and Italian cheeses.
The extensive range incorporates superb examples of favourites such Comte, Morbier, Hafod, Manchego, Tomme de Savoie and Colston Bassett Stilton and extends to some unique farmhouse and smaller artisan individual goat’s, ewe’s and blended cheese such Crottin de Chavignol, Langres, St Felicien and Brebis D‘argental.
For 2020 we are working closer than ever before with our suppliers aiming to buy directly from producers in the UK and Europe wherever possible, providing us with more knowledge and ideas to share. Look out for exciting new products across our specialist range.
Whilst Welsh and French cheeses are our specialities we will never loose our roots, Olives&Oils continues to offer supreme olives and oils, together with a comprehensive range of high quality delicatessen goods, with an emphasis on excellence.
