Romesco
The Olive People

Romesco the olive people are delighted to announce that they have relocated from Mooi River to the outskirts of Howick, right next door to Sutherlands at the Midmar / Howick off ramp in a shiny new factory. (watch out on the N3 for the sign on the building)

Romesco is an innovative company run by a bunch of food lovers. They specialise in marinating kalamata and green olives in extra virgin olive oil to different recipes – 26 of them. Firm favourites are the tangy kalamata, smoked campfire, herby greek moussaka, lemony tajine and the wonderful stuffed olives with feta, garlic, almond and lemon. They also make the amazing Catalonia pepper sauce called Romesco that gave its name to the business.

The famous plump kalamata olives are grown in South Africa as well as being imported from Kalamata in the peloponnese. – We only ever use kalamata – says Claire the founder of the company – we adore the bitter chocolatey taste and they are the finest table olive in the world. The very grassy extra virgin olive oil is pressed in the Cape exclusively for romesco and recently won a top award for one of the finest oils in South Africa.

All the manufacturing takes place here in the cool Midlands where they have a a shop filled with the different olives, tapenades, sauces and oil.

Come and see for yourselves; Claire will be there to explain all things olivey and of course you will be able to taste the delicious recipes.

Look out for the signboards directing you to the Midlands Business Estate.
