Olive Oil Suppliers Auckland New Zealand - Matiatia Grove Waiheke Island

The Company

The Waiheke Olive Oil Company was founded in 1997. Since then it has consistently produced superb quality, award-winning extra virgin olive oil.

The company is owned by John and Margaret Edwards. 

With its state of the art Pieralisi olive oil mill, high quality standards and attention to detail, the company has established itself as a premier olive oil producer both on Waiheke Island and in New Zealand. 

The Grove

Matiatia Grove is one of the oldest commercial groves on Waiheke Island, 35 minutes by ferry from Auckland city.  Waiheke Island produces some of the best olive oil and wine in New Zealand.

The grove is planted mainly with classic Italian and Greek olive varieties including Frantoio, Pendolino, Moraiolo and Nocellara del Belice from Italy and Koroneiki from Greece.

Some 'local' varieties such as J5 have also been planted bringing the total number of trees to around 2000.

Wherever possible, organic practices and principles are followed and we monitor tree nutrition and soil health closely to ensure the olive crop will be in perfect condition.
