Stefano moved to the UK in 2014 and soon enjoyed sharing the regional flavours from his home in the Veneto, North East Italy with our new neighbours here, including his family’s own olive oil. Continuously inspired by Slow Food principles we went on to set up our deli in 2016. We source our products from small and ethical producers wherever possible and seek out the story behind them to share with our customers. We try to visit where our products are made when travelling back to Italy to visit family, as this can really bring them to life for us and generate an even greater knowledge to pass on. For this reason we have also have added some local produce to our range so that we can get to know the place and the person behind them. We champion the pleasure of enjoying and celebrating good home-cooked food together, as we do in Italy. Knowledge of the supply chain and how things are made is very important to us, something which we also wanted to replicate with the Fashion element of our store. You can see both our Slow Food and Slow Fashion inspired collections online at www.oliveandrosy.com or visit us at our shop in Wellington, Somerset as well as several local markets and events.
