Mediterraneo are proud to say they do not sell gourmet food products.  Instead, this family-run business travels the world sampling and sourcing foods from like minded businesses in Italy, Greece, France, Spain and Australia.  The end result – quality food that is simple, delightful and an experience to be savoured with loved ones.

It is this shared philosophy that sees Mediterraneo as the proud sole distributer of Arnaud olives.

Marius Arnaud was so passionate about olives, that in 1947 he started to cure his own in the traditional Provencal style.  Generations later the Arnaud family is still growing and curing olives in the small town of Fontvieille-en-Provence in France.  Little did Marius know that today his grandsons would be exporting his olives to every corner of the globe so that we all can enjoy the most delicious olives in the world.

Arnaud olives are made from all natural ingredients, no artificial flavours, colours or preservatives, just the way mother nature intended.  And with their delicious taste, even the most hardened olive critic will be converted.

The Arnaud Olive range includes:
Cassess Fenouil Green Olives with Fennel a La Provencal… Made according to an old recipe from the beautiful Vallee des Baux in Provence, Fennel is grown wild among the olive trees and adds a delicious flavour.  Try limiting yourself to just a few… we’re not sure you can.

Black Olives a La Provencale with roasted garlic… Lightly salted and dressed in sunflower oil and barrel cured for 8 months, these tender black olives are marinated with finely sliced roasted garlic and are a treat that’s too hard to resist!

Le mélange Provencal Mixed Olive… A beautiful assortment of five delicious olives; Purple tailladees, cracked green, small coquillos, picholines and black.  Marinated in light sea salt brine, then seasoned with thyme and aged red wine vinegar, these olives are the perfect aperitif, mixed into salads, casseroles or tagines.

Black Olives a La Provencale with roasted garlic: RRP $11.99 (420 gram jar)
