Welcome to Oliveti

Officially formed in July 2001, ‘Oliveti Northland Inc.’ is a collection of Northern Olive growers. Our growers are situated from Auckland to the Far North and we have over 100 members.

Northland, like the rest of New Zealand, has a relatively young olive industry by today’s standards but New Zealand is already producing award-winning extra virgin olive oils that have won critical acclaim both at home and overseas.

The Oliveti members know that by concentrating on the production of very high-quality Extra Virgin Olive Oils, Oliveti growers have found a niche in the boutique olive oil markets of both NZ and exporting to the world. We are helped by being the first growers in the world to harvest olives.

To help promote this aim Oliveti growers came together to create our famous Olive Oil Tasting Trail so that visitors can experience olive oil production and sample the various distinctive local varieties of Extra Virgin Olive Oils including our now famous Lemon Olive Oil.
