Nefiss Lezizz in the Calgary Herald

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

A busted knee that ended a professional basketball career and a plot of land in Turkey striped with olive trees has led a Calgary man to create a thriving business connecting locals to the ingredients of a country halfway around the world.

In a small storeroom in the city’s northeast, Mustafa Cetin shows off his wares: jars of green and black olives, trays of jewel-toned dried apricots, boxes of softly scented soap and, most importantly, pallets stacked with glass bottles and three-litre cans of his olive oil.

This is the heart and soul of Nefiss Lezizz.

Mention on The Weekly Grape!

We were fortunate to meet Erin at the Rocky Mountain Wine & Food Festival. She was kind enough to give us a mention on her blog!

While he wasn’t representing a winery or a wine or even a restaurant for that matter, one of the nicest guys at the event was selling– olive oil. And not just any olive oil- Turkey Olive Oil. The company is Nefiss Lezizz Mustafa and his partner were there to bring us the best darn olive oil this side of the Atlantic and the Mediterranean. He was also sampling olives. And man were these olives delicious! We ended up purchasing olives (2 types), olive oil and then Mustafa threw in some spices and some free soap (which I might add I have in my bathroom and the smell of this soap is simply amazing). I really think his next line of product should be perfume or candles or something!

Orofino is known for being Canada’s only straw bale winery.  It should also be known as a purveyor, not only of fine wines, but of gourmet food products.  John and Virginia have begun working with a number of specialty producers such as Nefiss Lezizz and Edible BC. Nefiss Lezizz specializes in olive products from Turkey. It is a small family run olive farm producing a gorgeous, fresh olive oil, and sun dried smoked and classic black Gemlik olives (both addictively delicious!)
