Essex Olive Oil Company - Essex, CT

Our Story

Essex Olive Oil Company was born from a passion for fine food, a love of fresh premium olive oil and the idea of offering fresh, natural, premium quality food to the Essex Community.

After spending over 15 years in the banking industry, Heather Olson decided it was time for a change, and founded Essex Olive Oil Company in 2015. A lifelong resident of the Connecticut shoreline, Heather saw the need for a healthy gourmet shop, and created Essex Olive Oil Company to cater to a growing community of people wanting to eat and cook healthier.
