ONE of the world’s best olive oil brands and one of Manila’s top artisan Italian restaurants meet in a special collaboration that had Va Bene Pasta Deli’s executive chef and owner Massimo Veronesi personally curate a special menu of dishes created using different Oliviers&Co. (O&Co.) products.

Both the Oliviers&Co. boutique and the top-rated Va Bene restaurant are located at Central Square, located at the corner of 30th St. and 5th Ave., Bonifacio Global City.

France-based olive oil company Oliviers&Co. sources its olive oils from the best places in the world, including France, Spain, Italy, Greece, Croatia and Portugal. At a certain time of the year annually, olive oil producing companies using hand-picked olives from their own farms submit samples to Oliviers&Co. and only the best are selected “by taste, by nose and by luminescence” and retailed under the O&C brand. The boutique also sells specialty condiments and seasonings, such as Blueberry Balsamic Condiment and Fig Condiment.
