About Citizens of Soil:

We’re creating the UK’s favourite brand of olive oil; a show-stopping brand for modern citizens who care about quality, transparency, and sustainability.

Our award-winning, single estate, extra virgin olive oils are sourced from female-owned groves who practise regenerative farming. We package it up in reusable bottles with refill pouches and subscriptions that are creating a circular take-back model.

Our transparent supply chain means we can trace where every drop comes from and that fair pay is established from the beginning.

Our olive oil has been featured in both The Times and the Evening Standard’s top oils this year, and we’ve received fantastic reviews in Refinery29, The Spectator, British GQ, Club Oenologique, amongst others.
