Golden Delicious

I’ve been using extra virgin olive oil for many years now. As soon as I found out about its health benefits it’s been number one on my shopping list. In SA we’re lucky to have good-quality, local olive oils so easily available to us.

One such range of olive oils to look out for is Willow Creek. Not only are they winning awards — their most recent victories include a gold medal for their Directors’ Reserve extra virgin olive oil at the SA Olive Awards, and a Distinction at the Italian L’Orciolo d’Oro competition. In addition, Andries Rabie, managing director, was heralded as the Olive Achiever of the Year — but their oils are delicious too.

And their new squeezer bottle is just fab. It’s so easy to use and control the flow of the olive oil, especially over salads. (Extra virgin olive oil is my salad dressing of choice.) And it’s not just me who thinks so. Willow Creek has just received news that they are the recipient of a SA Gold Pack Award for this innovative Gourmet Squeeze olive oil bottle. Well done, again, Willow Creek.
