Straight from the Negev desert, immersed in ancient Biblical traditions,
and yet prepared with the most advanced “cold press”
extraction technologies, comes the pride of Israel's Olive
Oil Industry - Halutza Olive
It started some 50 years ago, with the heroic conquering of the
arid terrain of the Negev Desert, and turning it into a flourishing
garden, despite the absolute lack of fresh water.
In time, a large subterranean reservoir of brackish water was discovered.
The reservoir allowed for the plantation, on virgin soil, of Halutza
olive orchards. The salt water is the orchard's only source
of irrigation. We believe that the Halutza orchards, in excess of
150,000 trees, are the largest of their kind in the world.
The tough climate of the Negev Heights demands around the clock
intensive care of the orchard. The Olive trees respond in an exceptional
manner to this loving treatment, and bare larger, juicier and tastier

Halutza Olive Oil olives are plump and intact. They are carefully
selected, picked and transported to the modern mill, which is located
right on the premises, under strict supervision, to ensure proper
conditions and preservation of their special qualities.
The production process is performed observing the most hygienic
conditions. The Extra Virgin Olive Oil is made from selected olives,
without resorting to heat treatment commonly used to increase yields
Classified as "Extra Virgin Olive Oil" - the highest quality classification, this smooth,
elegant oil is rich in aroma and yields an incomparable grassy-fruity bouquet - and great, Tuscany style, taste.
Halutza continues to receive local and international recognition for its high quality and unique flavor, 1st place "Armonia- Alma Trophy" Italy,
