On the 16th of July we celebrated our 12th Birthday!
Oliveology was founded in 2009 as a means of sharing the culinary treasures and gastronomic traditions of Greece. From our modest beginnings as a little stall in Borough Market, we’ve grown to have a lovely shop at Three Crown Square and a railway arch at Spa Terminus in Bermondsey hosting a second shop, our own professional kitchen, and an events space.
We would like to thank all of you for becoming part of our Oliveology family over the years: our inspiring artisanal producers, beloved customers, loyal staff, past and present.
This last year was particularly challenging for us all, but we managed to keep strong because of all the love and support we received from you, our customers. As the world was closing in, communication with you in our shops, on our social media outlets and during our virtual workshops helped us feel so close to you all and gave us the support we needed to overcome the challenges we were facing.
We look forward to this summer, the time of the year when Marianna, our founder, and her family travel back to Greece, in search of new, exciting ingredients and foods to bring back for us. It is not only about discovering new tastes and flavours, but also about building strong, long-lasting relationships with those who produce the food we put on our table.
This year we also couldn’t be more thrilled to have new members joining our Oliveology team (including little Harry!), both at Borough Market and at our offices and warehouse space in Bermondsey. Pop by and say hi to them!
As we blow the candles on our 12th birthday cake (made with olive oil, of course!), we only feel optimistic about the future. We are excited to have launched our delicious Greek dips range and many culinary experiences, including our Oliveology holidays. Check out our autumn 2021 events, including exclusive wine tastings where you can learn all there is to know about Greek wine. We are also very happy to be planning more surprises for you: think of wholesome, cooked meals from our professional kitchen coming your way and the subscription boxes that many of you have asked for. These are just a few of the things we have planned for the future.
We look forward to many more years ahead, sharing our passion for quality, flavourful, nutritious foods that reflect our values and dreams for a more sustainable and fair world.
Thank you for being part of our journey so far, and for your immense love and support!
