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, spanakopita, baklava, authentic Spanish cooking chorizo and mediterranean bar snacks.
We also stock continental cheeses, including Picos Blue, greek ‘Dodoni’ feta, cypriot halloumi, manchego and taleggio. 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 independents.
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 travel to farmers markets throughout the north west of England to sell our wares, and we also 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!
OUT AND ABOUT...
We do five monthly farmers markets across the north west, a monthly summer market at Tameside Hospital,
and a weekly term-time market at Leeds University.
We also have several stockists in the locality.
