About Us

From humble beginnings

The Village Press Ltd is New Zealand's leading extra virgin olive oil producer and sets the standard for fresh and delicious extra virgin olive oil.

With more than 20 years’ experience producing the highest quality extra virgin olive oil, The Village Press Ltd is an industry pioneer on a mission to show New Zealand what premium extra virgin olive oil really tastes like.

From humble beginnings based at Black Barn Winery in Havelock North and selling oils at the Hawke’s Bay Farmers’ Market, The Village Press is proud to craft flawless oils of uncompromising quality and taste which are available widely throughout New Zealand today.

The Village Press has a passionate collection of growers with the majority based in the Hawke’s Bay. The largest grove of 30,000 trees is located just north of Napier with the remaining fruit grown in Wairarapa and the Kapiti Coast.

Our fresh extra virgin olive oils are cold pressed from the highest quality olives, picked at optimum ripeness for heavenly fruit character. Once the olives come into the mill, our master blender, Nathan Casey oversees each olive from the press to the bottle ensuring sublime flavour in every drop.
