The journey began nearly 20 years ago
in Southern Portugal, when a food business
was the furthest thing from our minds.

However, with time and an immersion into
Portugal’s culinary heritage and wildly rich
landscape came a realization that few people
outside Portugal knew what it had to offer.

This inspired Stephen Firth and wife Rachel to
create Azouro in 2013, motivated by an appetite
for the premium quality artisan products and the
producers that they partner with.

The Portuguese identify strongly with their
local and regional foods, so we decided to
curate the best, most delicious and authentic
food on the market, in pursuit of food excellence.

Packing by hand in Matosinhos (fishing port), Northern Portugal

Since 2013 our business and home are based in the north of the country, where we work with the best speciality food producers to make our high-quality products. The journey, in some ways, feels like it’s just starting.

Trás-os-Montes and the Alto Douro is one of the best olive oil production areas in the world. It is where the Terra Quente (The Warm Land) climate and schist soils produce very delicate and complex olive oils with a nutty aroma. These are extremely balanced olive oils with rather sweet, green, bitter and spicy tastes.

It is situated just above the River Douro in the north of the country, famous for Port Wines and offers the right conditions for us to produce an exclusive and fascinating olive oil. Azouro is made by cold pressing the olives within hours of being handpicked and then bottled. This process must all be carried out in the district where the olives are harvested in order to mainta in the strict PDO certification criteria and respect cultural traditions.

First Cold Pressed 100% Extra Virgin Olive Oil produced in the Protected Designation of Origin of Trás-os-Montes.

Every season we create our unique blend from a selection of the finest indigenous olive varieties from this region – Verdeal, Madural & Cobrançosa.

Indigenous olive variety unique to Portugal – Beira Baixa region. The hot dry summers and cold wet winters of this region create optimum conditions for ripening the olives on the trees, helping to create their distinctive sweet flavour.
 
Also known as the olive of Portugal, our native Galega variety are ripened on the tree and then carefully selected for harvesting when just ripe. They are then cured naturally in brine (mix of water and salt) for a minimum of 7-8 months and up to 2 years, depending on the state of maturation of the olives when collected from the trees (more or less mature), before adding oregano. The result is an olive that is firm, smooth and sweet.

They are an ideal table olive as it’s easy to separate the pulp from the stone. A favourite of the Portuguese.
