The Hellobox Extra Virgin Olive Oil is a blend of Leccino, Coratina and Frantoio olives, meticulously sourced from various groves throughout the Western Cape. We do not limit ourselves to only one producer but follow the CTC guidelines to ensure quality and consistency. Our Extra Virgin Olive Oil presents beautifully rounded, fruity aromas on the nose, well balanced, rich and creamy flavours with peppery tones and a pleasant bitterness to give a lasting taste experience.
History & Culture
Hellobox (Pty) Ltd was developed out of a need rather than just a passion for both olives and EVOO. As a “foodie” person who worked and managed wine and olive estates for 30 years, the passion grew to provide top quality products directly to the public at an affordable price. Every chef worth his weight will agree that the quality of the ingredients in any dish plays a major role in the success of that dish. We have chosen a quirky approach to packaging and believe that Extra Virgin Olive Oil packaged in a “Bag-in-a-Box” eliminates the possibility of oxidation allowing freshness to the last drop. Our table olives are meticulously sourced from reputable suppliers and we offer only genuine Kalamata olives to the buyer and not “Calamata Style” products. Our mission is to be in all B&B’s, delis and, of course, your kitchen. We offer tasting at venues and events and supply products to “Ginger and Lime” event functions. Hellobox Extra Virgin Olive Oils are complemented with barrel-fermented and aged balsamic vinegar and, like salt and pepper, they go extremely well together.
