$6.25

Mount Zero Olives is a family owned olive grove three hours west of Melbourne on the northern edge of the Grampians National Park in Victoria, Australia. Commitment to flavour, sustainable farming and a passion for quality ingredients defines Mount Zero and all that we gather.

Our large range of top quality pulses and grains are grown and sourced from the fertile regions of the Wimmera and Tasmania. The range includes popular superfood Quinoa, our very own Bio-dynamic Soup Mix and Organic Chickpeas.



An ancient grain, freekeh is made from young, green wheat that is traditionally roasted over wood fires to burn off the husks, giving the grain a lovely, nutty flavour. Freekeh’s originates from the Arabic word ‘faraka’ (meaning ‘to rub’) which refers to the traditional method of rubbing the husk away from the dried wheat. It is then left to dry further and either cracked or left whole (i.e. wholegrain).


A grain that is high in fibre (up to four times more fibre than brown rice) and even higher in protein that is also low in carbohydrates with a low Glycaemic Index (G.I), makes it great for diabetics and an all-round brilliant grain!
