A family business is marking its tenth year of operations by re-launching its award-winning oils.

Ola Oils, based at Westfield Farms in Inverurie, Aberdeenshire, has been producing cold pressed rapeseed oil as a healthy, home-grown alternative to olive oil since 2008.

To mark the occasion, the business unveiled new look bottles at Taste of Grampian on Saturday, 2nd June.

With half the saturated fat and ten times the Omega 3 of olive oil, the product has grown in popularity ever since the Sorrie family were the first to launch it in Scotland a decade ago.

John Sorrie, managing director of Westfield Farms, said: “Rapeseed was grown on our farm for decades and after realising the health benefits of the oil, we began the process of taking it from field to plate.

“By growing the seed ourselves, we can closely monitor the entire process and ensure only the best product reaches our customers. From sowing the seed through to its harvest and the finished product, we are involved at every stage.

“We are delighted to be exhibiting at Taste of Grampian, which showcases the very best independent produce our region has to offer. Our tenth anniversary offers an excellent opportunity to rebrand and reintroduce our products to the market.

“The last decade has been a steep learning curve, but one which has been thoroughly rewarding and we are encouraged by the continued success of Ola Oils.”

Some of the machinery was designed and made by Mr Sorrie, himself a former engineer. It presses the seed once to preserve the flavour, before filtering to remove sediment and guaranteeing a clear oil.

Ola, which is Gaelic for oil, comes in original rapeseed as well as lemon, garlic, rosemary, basil and chilli infusions.
