A new Cornish olive company, based in Roche between Newquay and St Austell, has been officially opened by local MP Stephen Gilbert. The Cornish Olive Company, located on the Victoria Industrial Estate has been running as an olive stall from Falmouth market and taking part in food festivals until now. *CLOSED DOWN*
Erik Verwaaijen joined with business partner Steve Magill to form the new Cornish Olive Company and recently set up business in their new 1500 sq ft base, which they have spent thousands of pounds transforming over the last three months.
“It was an empty, shabby, old building before, but we have spent blood, sweat and tears putting it together on a shoe-string.
“It’s going to be just the job for us,” said Mr Magill.
“This is where we dress the olives, marinade them, and they really are fabulous.”
All the best of luck to this new business!
