About this Product
Why is the avocado fruit so special?
Avocados are one-of-a-kind when it comes to cooking oils.
Most plant oils are extracted from the seed of the plant, but avocado oil is extracted from the flesh of the avocado, which is heavily packed with vitamins and minerals.
This allows both the taste and the minerals to be retained throughout the process, resulting in a healthy, mouth-watering cooking oil.
Our enticing Extra Virgin Avocado Oil is lovingly made from the fresh, ripe flesh of New Zealand Hass avocados in small, quality-controlled batches —remaining true to our founding principles of superior character and sustainability.
The taste of the avocado fruit is marvellous, which is probably why it’s so popular across the globe.
A smooth, buttery taste means it can go into almost any recipe, while many studies have shown a wide range of health benefits, from lowering cholesterol to improving heart health.
When it comes to cooking, avocado oil is the ultimate chef’s tool. It can be used for everything, from gentle heating, roasting, and even drizzled over salads and vegetables.
Vegetables, fish, or meat, roasting, baking, or grilling, cooking oil, dressing, or marinades… our Extra Virgin Avocado Oil does it all!

Studies have shown avocado oil lowewrs blood pressure, and on top of everything else, they are also great for your hair and skin!
Our world-famous cold-extraction process
From small beginnings in a New Zealand town, Olivado has grown to be one of the world’s leading suppliers of high-quality cooking oils.
This is in no small part thanks to our incredible cold-pressed extraction method, which allows us to turn our enticing, ripe fruit into quality cooking oil, and still retain all its health properties by the end.
This pioneering method of extracting the oil from an avocado has now become industry standard and is used throughout the world by other manufacturers.
The process is similar to the traditional method, but with one key difference; the temperature never rises above 50 degrees celsius. This ensures the avocado oil produced will retain all the nutrients and minerals of the avocado fruit.
Only by this cold-extraction process can avocado oil be truly called extra-virgin.
