Don and Violet Hickey are excited about the emerging trends of fine food and healthy eating. As avid travellers with a love for dining, the couple discovered an olive oil and balsamic vinegar tasting bar while on vacation. Falling in love with the idea, they quickly set to work to research how to bring the experience and product home to Thunder Bay. The result is Superior Olive Oil Company—a gourmet, flavour infused, olive oil and balsamic vinegar tasting bar.

Each week at the Thunder Bay Country Market, the Hickey’s greet their customers with 30 samples, including favourite flavours such as blueberry, sesame ginger, Italian herb, and roasted garlic. Not only does this quality product appeal to each person’s taste buds and culinary needs, but the Hickey’s will educate you on the possibilities to enjoy their products and the resulting health benefits.

Now in business for over a year, Superior Olive Oil Company is already appreciated by many local restaurants. Top chefs are using these oils in salads and marinades or as a dip for bread. With many recipes available on their website, anyone can become a savvy chef creating cookies, sauces, muffins, or a vinaigrette.
