The etymology of the word AL ATIKA exists in the Arabic language to signify the oldest character of the subject. So he can go back to the era where the olive tree existed on earth. Tunisia, land of olive trees for thousands of years. This legendary and historic tree is not only emblem of robustness, pride and immortality but also marks the culture and especially the gastronomy of the country. AlAtika has the most prestigious sun-drenched olive groves in central Tunisia. It works to offer you the best extra virgin olive oil thanks to its perfect control of the Tunisian olive-growing tradition and the ancestral Mediterranean agronomic know-how.

Al Atika Premium, our flagship and exclusive product, comes from the 100% natural processing of a fine selection of the best fruits of the legendary national cultivar "Chemlali-Sahli". Hand picked in millenary olive groves inherited from our founding Phoenician ancestors in Carthage, the oil from its fruits reflects the faithful transmission of olive oil expertise over generations and civilizations. Characterized by its delicate acidity, its aromatic richness and its many virtues on health, this oil is distinguished by a high content of polyphenols.
Monitored very closely since flowering, our fruits are spoiled by the bounty of the summer sun and then ripen thanks to the continental cold characteristic of the Kairouan region. Plucked naturally in a family atmosphere that celebrates the traditions of our ancestors, our olives are then carefully cleaned and gently transported to our olive press that illustrates the perfect marriage between cutting-edge technology on one side and authenticity of the other's product.
