ABOUT THE OLIVE LADY
When she first started importing Greek food products, Mary became known locally as ‘The Olive Lady’. Twenty years later, she launched ‘The Olive Lady’, her own brand of authentic Greek olives and antipasto products for the Kiwi market… and Kiwis can’t get enough of them!
“The whole Mediterranean, the sculpture, the palm, the gold beads, the bearded heroes, the wine, the ideas, the ships, the moonlight, the winged gorgons, the bronze men, the philosophers – all of it seems to rise in the sour, pungent taste of these black olives between the teeth. A taste older than meat, older than wine. A taste as old as cold water.” - Lawrence Durrell
