Altis is a high-quality extra virgin olive oil with a rich, superior and authentic taste of Greece to the last drop. We use the traditional way of collecting, with almost no machinery to ensure the best of the olives are extracted for bottling,” said Peter Muchiri, Managing Director, East and Southern Africa, Upfield.

Extra virgin olive oil is the healthiest type of olive oil. “Extra virgin” label means that the olive oil is not refined, and therefore of high quality.
