At Bertolli, we believe that great food is at the heart of great living and that natural ingredients combined with the magic of olive oil deliver wholesome, flavourful food.
Bertolli Olive Oil is pressed from the best quality olives grown on fertile soil under the hot Mediterranean sun. The ripe olives are harvested from November through to February and soon after harvesting the olives are crushed mechanically. Around five kilos of olives are needed to produce one litre of Bertolli olive oil. The crushing process produces pure olive pulp from which the precious Bertolli olive oil is pressed; this is called the first cold pressing, shortly after which the olive oil is bottled, giving it a long shelf life without any artificial additives.
Bertolli olive oil is not only a delicious flavour enhancer for all your dishes; it is healthy and good for you as it is rich in unsaturated fatty acids which are known as ‘good fats’. Bertolli olive oil is also rich in oleic acid, a monounsaturated fat, which helps keep the cardio circulatory system in good health and contains natural antioxidants, such as Vitamin E which protect our cells from free radical damage.
