On a farm called Falcon’s Nest – itself nestled beneath the beautiful, ragged Stellenbosch mountains of the Western Cape, South Africa – entrepreneur & passionate food connoisseur, Perry Chaloner, has been hard at work building his niche food business.
Close on 20 years ago he started experimenting with traditional 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.
And so, based on the finest farm-grown ingredients as the fruit is carefully grown in organically fertilized orchards, and harvested at optimum maturity to ensure the highest natural sugar content, slowly a range of innovative tapenades, olives, marmalades and delicious jams developed. The Chaloner brand was born.
In the last couple of years they finally celebrated their long awaited first Olive Oil bottling only to walk away with a Gold in the 2013 SA Olive Awards. After initially supplying only the South African market, these premium products are now internationally known and enjoyed.
“Our philosophy is never to compromise on quality” – Perry Chaloner
