Olives have been cultivated for thousands of years throughout the Mediterranean, and Italissima imports dozens of varieties and sizes from from Italy, Spain, Greece, France, and surrounding countries.

Perhaps the most popular olive from Italy is the Cerignola olive, originating in Cerignola, Italy, and famous for its large size, shape, range of colours, and taste. Other Italian varietals such as Castelvetrano olives and Caserecce olives, Gaeta olives, Baresane olives, and Calabrese olives are proudly imported by Italissima.

A number of olive mixes are also available from Italissima including the popular Sicilian Olive Mix (made with only Sicilian olives) and our Mediterranean Olive Mix (made with olives from around the Mediterranean).
