The History of Tunisian Olive Oil

The olive tree is rich in its history of the Mediterranean region. The culture of olive oil goes to years BC
It was first brought to Tunisia from the Middle East by the ancient Phoenicians founders of Carthage. Than throughout the Mediterranean history, Carthaginians, Romans, Arabs and all civilisations have been passing the cultivation know-how from one generation to the other.
Tunisia is now one of the largest producers of olive oil offering multiple local varieties such as Chemlali, Weslati and Chetoui.
Slama Huiles is the result of three generations of olive trees harvesting heritage continuing the 2000 years tradition. It’s a story of a family that managed to transform the passion for the Mediterranean tradition, the healthy nutrition and the expertise in the olive groves, through harvesting, pressing and bottling in a prestigious olive oil brand name.
