Olivado in New Zealand

At the top of New Zealand’s North Island, nestled in the stunning Bay of Islands, lies the small town of Kerikeri.

It was here that a remarkable team of people got together to perfect the process of extracting oil from avocados.

This was the beginning of an endeavor that would revolutionise the industry.

A Kiwi success story

From humble beginnings to the world’s largest producer of extra virgin avocado oil

Our story

The Olivado story began at the very beginning of the 21st century, in Kerikeri in the beautiful Bay of Islands near the top of New Zealand’s North Island.

An innovative team, comprising a former chef, a legal brain, a marketing whiz, an internationally renowned food scientist, and an international investor, working together with scientists at Massey University, New Zealand’s premier Food Science University, pioneered and perfected the process of oil extraction from the avocado.

The unique process they developed is used exclusively in the Olivado production plants. Olivado’s process uses just the pulp of the avocado – that’s all.

Our focus is on quality, taste, and better health for people and the planet.

Olivado is now the world’s largest producer of extra virgin cold-pressed avocado oil and the leading brand sold in supermarkets in more than 31 countries.

We started in Aotearoa, now we’ve conquered the world.

Taste the goodness.
