Carbonell celebrates the beginning of the European olive harvest

Harvesting olives the traditional way with sticks

As we lead into the Australian summer we are also leading into the European olive harvest, which runs from November to March each year.

All over Europe orchardists and backyard farmers alike will be shaking their trees and crushing their olives to make the same traditional olive oil they have been making for centuries.

Antonio Carbonell, founder of Spain’s number one selling olive oil, pressed his first ever olives almost 150 years ago in 1866, and Australian families have been cooking with Carbonell olive oil ever since the 1970’s.

Each four litre tin of Carbonell olive oil is made from more than a whole tree’s olive yield and the new seasons harvest will be rolling out nationally in Woolworth’s over the coming months, on special for just RRP $20.
