Spoilt for Choice this summer!

Like many people at this time of year I’m looking forward to lazy days on the beach enjoying the summer heat. With this in mind I decided that it was time to work on my ‘beach body’ with the use of some of the many incredible oils that the Kerfoot group supply.

Tapas Time

Visiting the picturesque region of Andalucía for a review of our olive oil supply base provided not only an experience to learn about the technical processes and current markets but an opportunity for an insight into everyday life in Spain.

On any given Sunday…

Reporting from the goal mouth: Thomas Kerfoot (aka The Cat Jnr).

It has been talked about for so long, finally the clash of Olive House (OH) vs. Goole Factories (GF) finally took place. The sun shone for this righteous occasion where the finest pen pushers of the north were to take on the muscle of Goole at the Victoria Pleasure Grounds, Goole.

On Wednesday 21st May, we were invited by Simonsen Chartering’s to their Annual Summer Get Together, held in Svenborg, Denmark. Simonsens are the owners of the vessels we charter to bring in thousands of tonnes of vegetable oil each month.

We had an incredible journey ahead of us starting at 6.30am in Northallerton where we had to catch a train across the Pennines to Manchester airport. We then had no time to mess around as it was through security and onto our next mode

Harrods selling ‘fake’ Olive Oil

Festive Flavours from The Kerfoot Group

Christmas is fast approaching, and warming Christmas foods will no doubt be on most people’s minds. It’s the time of year that we can all over indulge on our favourite foods, and we don’t have to worry about the consequences until January… well at least we can keep telling ourselves that! We particularly associate Christmas with the smells and tastes of Cinnamon and this happens to be one of the many flavoured oils that The Kerfoot Group offer.
