Our History

Ehden & Qadisha Grove

We believe in sharing the unique culture and cuisine of Lebanon, the celebrated birthplace of olive oil. Our Lebanese origin has led us to be deeply and intricately involved in the preservation of historic olive groves that sustain the heritage and economy of traditional Lebanese culture. As urbanization and climate change pose as an ever-increasing threat to ancient olive groves, we’ve made it our mission to protect the trees and the growers who have been cultivating them for generations. We want to help the regeneration of olive groves, not see the last vestiges of what olives bring to Lebanese culture disappear. Every bottle of our ultra-premium olive oil is a unique story told by the olive trees, a celebration for the success of saving groves and supporting the olive growers. So open a bottle, pour indulgently, and join the celebration!

Oleavanti was founded to treasure and protect Lebanon’s olive heritage from the deleterious effects of the present chaotic urbanization and climate change.  We want to enchant the world with the hidden gems of Lebanon and by doing so create sustainable livelihood for all our growers. We want to embellish and revive this long existing and precious liquid gold and dazzle the world with its beauty and glory.

Lebanese favorites

God uses pressure, pain and difficulties to prepare us for Greater Things. Just like pressure is used to squeeze out oil from the olives, and pressure shapes diamonds, and fire refines gold....God does the same with us, to bring out our inner treasures.

Home-made bread rubbed with garlic and sprinkled with olive oil, shared-with a flask of wine-between working people, can be more convivial than any feast.

Patience Gray

Wine is how we would like life to be, but olive oil is how life is: fruity, pungent, with a hint of complex bitterness.

More Than Oil

from the groves of Lebanon to your table.

Olive oil has the ability to elevate your cuisine and transform your dishes from bland to vibrant, so why choose ordinary? As the homeland of olive pressing, Lebanon has perfected the art of olive oil creation and defined what it means to have authentic olive oil. Our olives are grown and pressed with the highest level of care and attention to quality to create authentic, award winning, ultra-premium olive oil that you can pour indulgently onto every meal.

Extra-virgin olive oil is the healthiest oil on the planet. It is nothing but the juice of the olive fruit. Unlike oils made from seeds, vegetables, and tropical fruits, olive oil is a perfectly balanced blend of monounsaturated fatty acids (oleic acid), polyunsaturated (ω-6) fatty acids (linoleic acid), polyunsaturated (ω-3) fatty acids (a-linolenic acid). The presence of other compounds like polyphenols and tocopherols (vitamin E) are unique to fresh extra-virgin olive oil and have invaluable health-promoting properties.

Olive oil is the soul of the Mediterranean diet which has been shown to increase immunity, provide anti-inflammatory activity, lower blood pressure, reduce cardiovascular diseases, prevent Alzheimer’s, improve the ratio of good and bad cholesterol and protect the skin.
