Hi There mate!

Psst... listen up

We believe in nature's magic.
No interference needed. But sadly, too many of our natural treasures get tossed aside just because they don't fit supermarket or consumer beauty standards. Avocados included!

Did you know? More than 20% of all avocados get tossed away for being ‘too ugly’. That’s over a million avocados a day in Europe alone! This is when Soilmates come in, rescues them and squeezes out the good stuff. The result? The superhero of cooking oils. Yep, beauty is on the inside, mates!

Fighting food waste is at the heart of what Soilmates do. Dedicated to reducing greenhouse gas emissions and pollution by upcycling 'category two' avocados. We source these 'uglys' locally from European ports, ensuring we tackle local waste with care. 

We give them some love, send them to the factory and squeeze the health out of them. They’re then popped into bottles, hugged with our label and sent to you, to be welcomed into your kitchen.
