Olive Branch extends to Sweden with first export deal
Greek food company Olive Branch will make its debut in Sweden this week after its sweet olive, fig & almond relish gained a listing with cheese wholesaler Mollans Ost.
This is Olive Branch’s first export deal and the firm will be officially launching the relish alongside its latest distributor at the Formex trade show, which runs from 15-18 January in Stockholm.
Mollans Ost managing director Peter Martennson discovered the product at the BBC Good Food Show in Birmingham, where he was judging at the World Cheese Awards, organised by the Guild of Fine Food.
“I tried the product at the beginning of December and was instantly convinced of its potential for Swedish customers,” he said, “so much so that I placed an order straightaway with just days to go before Christmas.”
Olive Branch, which won the olive oil category of FFD‘s recently published Best brands survey, says the relish has a caramelised flavour that pairs well with many varieties of goats’ cheese and Stilton.
