British Olive Artisans
and so much more...
2023 is our 30th year of creating, sourcing & supplying authentic foods & ingredients from recipes collected on our original year-long motorcycle journey, and on the many more miles we’ve covered since.
In the early 90s, Giles and Annie Henschel embarked on a year-long adventure that would be the inspiration for Olives Et Al. Travelling on motorbikes through the Mediterranean, the Middle East and North Africa, they fell in love with the food they ate along the way.
They couldn’t gather many souvenirs, but did gather recipes hoping to re-capture the essence of their experiences by recreating at home the foods they had enjoyed abroad.
Using all the knowledge they’d collected during their travels, they launched Olives Et Al in 1993 to satisfy their own culinary cravings and to share great Olives with a wider audience.
Olives Et Al has spent 30 years developing an extraordinary range of award-winning products from Kiln Roasted Nuts & Snacks to unique Dressings, Sauces and Condiments plus, of course, our incredible Olives.
Authentic food from wherever the Olive tree grows...
