The Olive Press Ltd

The Olive Press has been pressing olives and making premium Olive Oil since 2001 using a centrifugal olive press imported from Officine Meccaniche Toscane (OMT) of Florence, Italy. Based in Wairarapa, one of New Zealand’s premium olive growing regions, our shareholders include local olive growers.

We accept quality fruit from customers and growers across throughout Wairarapa as well as Kapiti, Whanganui, Manawatu, Hawkes Bay and Marlborough. Our updated OMT press can process up to 1,700 kgs of olives an hour and produces premium, award winning Extra Virgin Olive Oils, and agrumato flavoured oils (where citrus or herbs are pressed with the olives).
