"Some of my fondest childhood memories are the times I spent with my mom in the kitchen. She has always been kind, patient and an amazing teacher with a desire for perfecting recipes. It was this creativity and shared love of food that led us down a path that would eventually become the Olivelle we all know and love today!

After graduating college in 2006, I moved back to my hometown of Bozeman, Montana where Michelle, my mom, and I opened our flagship store. I had an excitement for business operations and she had a love for good food. Together, we had a burning desire to create a wowing retail experience that was unlike anything Bozeman had seen.

Despite our initial excitement, Michelle and I encountered challenges in sourcing high-quality infused oils and vinegars for our newly independent shop. We were disappointed by the available offerings in the market and found that many suppliers were compensating for lower quality oils by masking them with flavors. Acknowledging that Olivelle's success depended on maintaining stringent quality control, we took matters into our own hands. Beginning with one of our high-quality, single estate extra virgin olive oils (a groundbreaking move in the industry) we set out to craft our own flavored olive oils. The exceptional taste of our creations became instantly recognizable by our customers and set the tone for Olivelle's commitment to crafting exceptional products.

Today, Olivelle crafts over 150 products with the same commitment to quality that we had when we created our very first product. When sourcing ingredients, we continue to work with small family farms that focus on quality over quantity. Every ingredient used in manufacturing must pass our extremely strict taste guidelines to ensure the finished products are something we will be proud to label with the Olivelle name.

Amidst this transformative journey, we are thrilled to announce our recent rebranding, a reflection of Olivelle's evolution and enduring commitment to excellence. As we embark on this new chapter with our reimagined brand, we invite you to continue exploring the world of Olivelle - where oils, vinegars, spices, and recipes converge to inspire you and your family. May our products remain an inspiration to you and your family, fostering the creation of cherished memories and moments of joy - mirroring the profound impact the love of food has had on my own family. Our rebranding is a celebration of our journey so far and a promise of more exciting culinary adventures to come. Thank you for being a part of the Olivelle story!" - Brie Thompson (co-founder)
