Achiya Olive Oil from The Heart Of Israel
A unique blend of several dominant and delicate varieties of olives which together create a balanced Israeli flavor. The combination of the different types is determined by the Meshek Achiya experts.
The olives are grown in the Biblical land near Shiloh where the Tabernacle once stood.
The oil has a balanced hot and bitter taste and is appropriate for hot cooking or cold seasoning.
Kosher for Passover
Oil bottle options:
Oil net weight: 250 ml(8.45 oz.)
Oil net weight: 500 ml (16.9 oz.)

From cultivating and growing the olives, all the way to marketing and selling the oil, Meshek Achiya does every single step of the process - the entire picture from the orchard to the bottle.
Their quality oil has won various international prizes, and has been awarded Israel’s finest olive oil several years in a row. It is the olive oil of choice for people from across the spectrum including private consumers and top chefs. At Meshek Achiya, they believe that good olive oil starts with good olives.
In 1997, Rabbi Yosef Shukar and his wife Ronit helped establish the settlement in the hills east of Shiloh, called Achiya (named after the Levite Prophet from Ancient Shilo). This pioneering couple soon founded the Meshek Achiya olive grove and olive oil factory. At the time, he was teaching in a pre-military yeshiva. The couple, along with Yosef’s students, took barren land, planted olive trees, and watched with amazement as the land began to flourish before their very eyes. They had heard that the Land of Israel had waited for the Jewish people and that it came to life with the Jewish touch, but it was a miraculous experience to see it for themselves. The Land of Israel is described in the Bible as, “a land of wheat and barley, and vines and fig-trees and pomegranates; a land of olive-trees and honey” (Deuteronomy 8:8).
After seeing his olive orchards flourish, Yossi bought an olive press for Achiya where he would cold-press his precious olives. Cold-pressing is a slower process, but maintains the integrity of the olives, resulting in higher quality oil. Just as it says in Exodus 27:20, the oil that was used to light the candle in the Tabernacle had to be, ”pure olive oil”, so too the oil of Meshek Achiya has won international prizes, and is acclaimed as one of the finest in the world.
