Avocado oil is less well known that its counterpart olive oil, however its health and culinary properties are just as impressive. Like olive oil, it's pressed directly from the flesh of the avocado rather than being chemically extracted like most other common oils. The fruit pulp is then centrifuged to extract the oil. This process retains most of the fruits nutrition, meaning it's not only healthy, delicious and versatile but its easy to use!

New Zealand at its very core:
New Zealand is known around the world for its clean image so, where better to create a clean green healthy oil than in the volcanic soils of Northland.
Grown in our own orchards, we start with the best Hass avocados, picked at the perfect level of ripeness, because the end result is only as good as the quality of the ingredients, and using the most advanced cold press extraction methods we are able to create a healthy oil that retains the benefits of eating the actual fruit. Its become our passion. Great taste runs in the family :)
