Thanks so much for taking the time to visit our website and explore our snacks. I take it you’ve landed on this page because you wanted to find out a bit more about our story (or just clicked the wrong button!), well here it is either way...
THE OLLY’S ADVENTURE BEGAN BACK IN 2015..
when i was a young optimistic olive lover who wanted to rejuvenate the world of olives with new flavours, colour and character. I began marinating olives in my kitchen (to my parents' dismay) and selling them at farmers markets.
People loved them, in fact they loved them so much i decided to pivot away from my path to becoming a doctor and focus on olives (to my parents' dismay again!). My brother Sam, and close friend, Yingdee, decided to join forces with me for the journey. And the HMS Olive set sail...
we launched our first ever olive snack pouches and across the next 3 years we continued on our mission to bring smiles to as many faces as possible with our olives, and we did just that, landing stockists across the UK and internationally. Our garlic & basil olives were even the official olive on a number of airlines!
“LET’S JUST LAUNCH MORE SNACKS!!”
Then the dreaded COVID struck and loads of our glorious stockists were unable to continue utilising our delicious olives, leaving us in a very sticky situation. A couple tears and a couple beers later, we decided... “LET’S JUST LAUNCH MORE SNACKS!!”
Across the following 18 months our range of snacks grew from 3 to 14, with the birth of our nut mixes, pretzel thins and chocolate covered pretzel thins! And... we even launched a beer, BECAUSE WHY NOT?!
The things I’m continually grateful for, is our incredible team and our amazing community (our FAM-OLLY). We now have 7 of us including my little sister, Ella, who joined at the start of 2021 and an office we call home, slap bang in the middle of London’s Brick Lane. It’s got our logo on the door and everything!
AND THAT BRINGS US TO THIS MOMENT RIGHT NOW,
and back thanking you for taking the interest and time to read our story. We massively appreciate it and we sincerely know you will love all of our snacks! :)
Lots of love
