A taste of the sun
Founded by ourselves, Carl Woodhead & Nikki Hill, in November 2007, Oliviccio is an independent, Saddleworth-based company dedicated to providing you with the very best in Mediterranean food.
Our range of high quality produce includes our own award-winning dressed & stuffed olives, a wide range of antipasti & meze, continental cheeses, charcuterie and much more. We are thrilled to have been awarded three coveted Great Taste Gold Stars for our olives, and pride ourselves on ensuring excellent standards every time you buy.
At the end of 2017 we took the next step in our adventures - we opened a traditional delicatessen in the heart of Uppermill. Selling the very best produce from local traders and from across the world, it is stuffed to the brim with the food we love - why not pay us a visit?
OUR SIGNATURE MEDITERRANEAN PRODUCE
We dress and stuff our own olives with fresh herbs and the finest ingredients. Most of our olives are Greek, either Halkidiki or Kalamata, and are not pasteurised, so retain their flavour and crunch. We soak them prior to use to remove much of their natural over-saltiness.
Our meze range includes homemade houmous, tzatziki, sun-dried tomatoes, pesto, tapenade & flavoured nuts. We also source a wide variety of top quality antipasti items such as cheese-stuffed red chilli peppers, dolmades, gigantes, Italian chargrilled artichokes, semi-dried tomatoes, authentic Spanish cooking chorizo and mediterranean bar snacks.
We also stock continental cheeses, including Picos Blue, greek ‘Dodoni’ feta, cypriot halloumi, manchego and many more. Most of our cheeses have protected origin status.
TASTE • EXCELLENCE • RELIABILITY
These are our watchwords
We work hard to provide the very best tasting food we can, whether it is made
by us or sourced from a range of excellent producers, many of whom are small independent businesses just like us.
We have been awarded three Great Taste Awards for our olives, and we ensure that the same level of quality is rigorously applied to all of our products.
We started our business on farmers markets throughout the north west of England, and we now have a delicatessen stocking a wide range of treats in Uppermill. Our customers are loyal - and lovely! We love what we do, and hope that comes across in our produce.
We also supply local farm shops, delicatessens, shops, pubs, cafés and restaurants. Consumers are becoming more and more aware of where their food comes from and how it is produced - we are delighted to be associated with people who aim to shed light on this.
All in all, we want to bring you the best tasting food we can - let us know if you think we’re succeeding with that!
We have now reluctantly decided to stop doing all our farmers markets and events.
This was not an easy decision for us, but under the current circumstances one we felt we had to take.
We would like to thank you for all your support over the last 13 years - you have been amazing & truly loyal customers. The shop in Uppermill is still open, and you can also buy our olives from Epicerie Ludo in Chorlton, Albion Farm in Delph, Pattisons Butchers in Mossley, High Crompton Fresh Produce and Dobcross Village Store.
