During this very challenging time for us all, this week we decided to share a few words, from all of us at Oliveology.
During this crisis, it is important to respond with compassion to others and help each other. We must care of ourselves and our bodies, by following the latest World Health Organisation guidelines. And of course, by eating wholesome foods that nourish the body and the soul.
As you may have read in our latest newsletter, in light of the COVID-19 spread we are closely monitoring the situation so as to ensure that we are taking all necessary precautions, so that our customers and the Oliveology team feel protected and cared for. We also work closely with and supporting our colleagues in the artisanal food industry. We are holding regular meetings with our team and colleagues at Borough Market and Spa Terminus, to ensure that we are all up to date on the latest governmental advice and find collective ways to support our customers.
Our shop at Borough Market currently remains open, and we will keep you updated on any developments. If you choose to visit us, we kindly ask you to maintain the necessary distance from others. There are no more sample produce in our display. Disinfectant wipes available for customer use, and of course we maintain the highest levels of hygiene. We also strongly encourage contactless payments – and make sure to clean your card as soon as you return home.
You can also use click & collect options from Borough Market during regular hours, or our Spa Terminus shop in Bermondsey Monday-Saturday 10am-5pm. Our shop at Spa Terminus is open as usual on Saturdays, while other Spa Terminus merchants are open during the week and some on Sundays.
Remember that you can always shop online at oliveology.co.uk. Our online shop offers delivery throughout the UK and Europe. If you would like to contact us about your order email us.
When shopping, please pace yourselves. Some of our ingredients are temporarily out of stock on our website, but worry not, we are expecting more stock of pulses, nuts and olive oil very soon!
Our neighbour Elysia Catering, is also putting together a selection of food essentials to pick-up or to be delivered by their team on their cargo bike from the 23rd of March 2020, including our Kalamata olives and extra virgin olive oil!
All of us at Oliveology are here to supply you with essential foods and ideas to prepare wholesome meals at home for your family. As well as olive oil and olives, we have stocks of pulses, grains, pasta, honey as well as many other staples. In the next few weeks we will be sharing with you simple, comforting recipes that you can make using your cupboard staples.
Most importantly, now that most of us are at home, it’s important to keep in touch, in any way that we can.
Share your instagram stories with us, tweet us, send us your thoughts on facebook.
Or, send an email to Nafsika, who writes this blog every week, say hi, what you are cooking, let her know what ingredients you have in your pantry, and we’ll think of wonderful recipes for you to try!
Do keep in touch and stay safe.
Marianna & the Oliveology team
