The Olive Press Ltd

The Olive Press is a company based in Wairarapa with shareholders including local olive growers. We have been pressing olives since 2001 using a large centrifugal olive press imported from Florence, Italy.

The Olive Press will accept fruit from anywhere in NZ. We predominantly service Wairarapa growers as well as Kapiti, Wanganui, Wellington, Manawatu and Hawke’s Bay. Our press is capable of processing 1,500 kilos of olives per hour and produces the highest quality extra virgin olive oil.
