Indulge in the bold flavors of our Mission olives, a small variety with immense taste. These olives offer a delightful blend of fruity and nutty notes, boasting a depth and richness that sets them apart from our Verdale olives. Mission olives have secured their place as our personal favorites. Harvested when purple-black and naturally fermented for 12 months using just salt, spring water and time. We then hand grade and jar for your enjoyment. Like all our olives, they are estate produced and certified organic.
Our table olive process in detail is as follows:
1. Olives are picked and immediately placed into brine (spring water, murray river salt). Nothing else is used or added for the curing process. 2. Natural fermentation is allowed to progress for a minimum of 12 months, during which lactic acid naturally forms as a result of the process. 3. Cured olives and hand graded and packed into jars. A fresh brine is prepared for packing, ensuring consistent shelf life. Our olives remain unpasteurized and rich in their natural goodness.
Ingredients: Olives, Brine (Water, Murray River Salt, Lactic Acid 0.1%)
It's important to note that lactic acid is commonly present in naturally fermented foods. Produced as a natural byproduct of fermentation, it's generated by specific bacteria like lactic acid bacteria. This conversion of sugars into lactic acid not only imparts the tangy taste to fermented foods but also acts as a natural preservative, extending their shelf life. This age-old fermentation technique is found in foods such as yogurt, sauerkraut, kimchi, pickles, sourdough bread, and, of course, olives.
Olives with a Mission! All profits from our previous batch of Mission olives was donated to Blaze Aid - raising over $6,000. Thank you for helping us make this possible.
Following the 2020 bushfire crises thankfully we were safe, however after the 2014 Grampians bushfire burnt part of our grove we benefited from and witnessed first hand the fantastic work of Blaze Aid in our area; helping to rebuild and lift community spirits. When it came to thinking about which charity Grampians Olive Co would support, Blaze Aid was the obvious choice and we are delighted to be able to "pay it forward".
"Blaze Aid is a volunteer-based organisation that works with families and individuals in rural Australia after natural disasters such as fires and floods. Working alongside the rural families, our volunteers help to rebuild fences and other structures that have been damaged or destroyed. Equally important, volunteers also help to lift the spirits of people who are often facing their second or third flood event after years of drought, or devastating losses through bushfires. BlazeAid volunteers work in a disaster-affected area for many months, not only helping individuals and families, but also helping rebuild the local communities."
Impeccable flavor. love they're organic & naturally fermented and nothing added. Super quick delivery, thanks guys. We have also been gifted your olive oil and it's gorgeous!

Mission Organic Olives
As new customers to Grampians Olive Co., we purchased seven 1.1kg jars on a Friday and recieved them undamaged on Tuesday in South Australia "Amazing". Well, these olives do take you to another level, even after some time you can still taste them. Its an honour to be a small part in helping the bushfire support within the Grampians Olive Co. Thankyou for producing such clean, fresh tasting olives.

Seriously you want me to review these delicious olives, if I do everyone will want them and then there might be a shortage when I want more. They are the best ever olive and I am reluctant to share this as there might be an enormous run on them. So no I don't think I will share the best olives I have ever tasted

Delicious and make a great gift also
My family also enjoyed their gift of my favourite olives

I purchased the large jar of these olives and coming from an Italian background we LOVE our olives. There's only one problem and that's the fact that they disappear so quickly because everybody wants to keep eating them until they're gone! I think I need to start buying in bulk! Such tasty olive varieties and I am beyond thrilled with the quick delivery of this top quality product. I'm so grateful to be able to support the work of Grampians by buying these olives!

Oh yummy mission olives
I just opened the bottle and they're so good. Love the full and rich flavour - so delicious. They're a bit fun as well being colourful to dress up a salad or meal. Haven't had fun olives but their beautiful colours will dress up a meal beautifully. A culinary delight.

These are the only olives I have enjoyed eating. They are only small but full of flavor and have a taste that does not overwhelm the pallet.
