Our philosophy is never to compromise on quality
Chaloner products are grown and crafted by the Chaloner family at their farm on the slopes of the mountain next to the picturesque town of Stellenbosch, in the Western Cape Province of South Africa.

The fruit is carefully grown in
organically fertilized orchards, and harvested at optimum maturity to ensure the highest natural sugar content.
Award winning Premium Extra Virgin Olive oil is our flagship amongst our extensive range
Preserves and Marmalades
Our Kalamata olives are carefully and slowly processed to ensure that none of the olive flavour is lost whilst removing the bitterness. They are then hand sorted and the best olives bottled in a brine of wine vinegar and sea salt with rosemary to enhance the flavour.

The range includes 5 different herb combinations.
Our versatile range of preserves and marmalades go with just about anything, and we have put a lot of care into making them.

They are a
unique combination of fruit and herbs which will impress the most stringent of connoisseurs.
Carefully blended and cold pressed within 24 hours, Chaloner Mountain Oil EVOO is a medium style oil blend from 8 different cultivars, while the Peregrine Limited Edition EVOO is a delicious medium style oil blend of 3 amazing oils.

On a farm called Falcon’s Nest - itself nestled beneath the beautiful Stellenbosch mountains of the Western Cape, South Africa - entrepreneur Perry Chaloner has been hard at work building his niche food preserve business of tapenades, olives, marmalades and jams.

Close on twenty years ago he started experimenting with
traditional jam recipes using the fruits that were flourishing on the 14-hectare farm: olives, plums, lemons, Seville oranges and herbs. Always retaining the best of ‘homemade’ tastes, Chaloner created quirky combinations and shared these special recipes with his friends: their response was overwhelming.

Raspberry Vinegar

Raspberries grown on the estate are mixed with
premium quality wine vinegar and unrefined sugar to create this delicious product.

Mix with olive oil, sugar, salt and pepper and drizzle this dressing over mashed potato.
A delicious chutney based on our Amber Jewel plums which are high in natural sugars, this versatile preserve goes with just about anything!

It is particularly wonderful served on the side of gourmet sausages or as a sauce for rich red meat dishes.

We also like it spread on a piece of bread with a slice of ham - great to
jazz up a kid’s lunchbox!
Maple Syrup
Maple Syrup is arguably the healthiest sweetener there is and there is much anecdotal evidence that this is one sugar source which (in moderation) is actually good for you.

It is a Sucrose based sugar, so your body can
synthesise it more easily than Fructose  .

It is also an
antioxidant so helps fight free radicals.
Maple is a 30 x reduction of the sap from Maple trees. Grade A is early season and Grade B is late season. Sometimes Grade B has a higher mineral content, but it has a more distinct flavour.
Sweet Chilli Sauce

Our version of the classic sauce. We don’t use any gums or other commercial smoke and mirrors.

Really fabulous.
Our Maple syrup is 100% pure. Be aware of cheaper ones which may be cut with Corn Syrup.
As one of South Africa’s top chefs, Bertus Basson has created a unique chilli sauce for the Chaloner range.

One of the largest international trends in retail now, is the revolt against mass production, with perceptive consumers wanting good quality, locally manufactured, small batch products and products that are differentiated from the mass market.

Chaloner products are the perfect accompaniments to any spread or meal, and can be enjoyed with a clear conscience.
Limited stock. Available from select retailers.

90% of South Africa's olives are grown in the Western Cape.
The region’s typically Mediterranean climate is perfect for this
type of crop. Olives are heat tolerant and require far less water
to survive than deciduous fruit. Falcon’s Nest has 7 000 olive
trees comprising nine varieties.

What sets Chaloner Olive Oil apart, is the unique micro climate
of Stellenbosch (more temperate than the Karoo, Spain and
Southern Italy), which means lower yields and enhanced flavour.
The sign of a good olive oil is low acidity. The maximum acidity
for classification as extra virgin is 0.8g, Chaloner’s is only 0.33g.

Chaloner oil is pressed within 24 hours of the olives leaving the
trees, from which they are hand-picked to avoid bruising and
damage. It is vastly superior to the cheap imported brands
currently flooding the market, which come from industrial
estates where quality is compromised in favour of volume.
Limited stock. Available from select retailers.

Delicate.   Flavourful.   Multifaceted.
And so, based on the finest farm-grown ingredients, slowly a range of innovative products developed. The Chaloner brand was born. After initially supplying only the South African market, these premium products are now internationally known and enjoyed. Today, the Chaloner Olive Marmalade and Chaloner Plum & Onion Preserve are regarded as classics in an ever developing range of quality products.
Pasta Sauces
In keeping with our philosophy of never compromising on quality we set about making a range of delicious Pasta sauces. 

Working with Chef and food guru Aliya Holland finding the right ingredients was key.  We wanted to avoid all the pastes and concentrates that make “normal” manufactured pasta sauces so unappealing. Research showed the tastiest tomatoes were grown on the Volcanic soils of Mount Vesuvius so that is where we sourced our tomatoes. Fresh herbs, our own Extra Virgin Olive Oil together with the simplest cooking process have resulted in a fabulous range.

Serve with Pecorino, Parmesan, Ricotta or Feta cheese with your favourite pasta.
