All profits on sales of our mission olives continue to be donated towards bushfire support and other community initiatives, on an ongoing basis.

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 batches of Mission olives were donated to support Blaze Aid and local bushfire recovery efforts following the 2024 fires. Thanks to your support, we have now donated over $12,000 since we began this iniative. Thank you for helping us make this possible. 

Bushfire support

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."
