I started Aurelius Food Co. while still serving in the military as an answer to my uncle's question during a family dinner in Sacrofano, Italy in 2016: Would Canadians be interested in this olive oil?
With this question, I decided I was going to make it happen. For 2 years I did small popups at bakeries and local markets on weekends. After getting out there and networking, I was lucky enough to start selling to a few top restaurants here in Ottawa (Riviera, e18hteen, Whalesbone). Then in 2018, I decided to leave the military and open my retail tasting boutique in Wellington West.
Since 2016 I have been personally importing and sourcing my products and catering to Ottawa's most elite chefs and critical foodies. Our authentic, small batch and artisanal products have garnered a strong reputation within those circles. We also offer an amazing quantity of flavoured olive oils and balsamic vinegars which will surely keep you coming back for more. As with our exclusive small batch imports, these products do not lack quality. Please come in and enjoy our tasting experience. We let you be the judge.
