Olive oil from Wales could be a cupboard essential in the not too distant future if oil specialist Calon Lân Foods has its way.

The Anglesey-based cooking oil producer has planted 50 olive trees next to a vineyard on the northern coast of the island.

Director Geraint Hughes, who came up with the idea for the project, teamed up with enterprise agency Menter Môn and a local vineyard owner to source trees from a region in Italy that experiences frost and snow in winter.

"We're confident this could be the most northern olive grove in Europe," said Mentor Môn's business manager Dafydd Gruffydd. "We feel farmers could capitalise on the Calon Lân brand to commercialise locally grown olives."

Calon Lân, which means pure heart, already specialises in cooking oils such as camelina, avocado and hemp oils. The first UK olive grove was planted last year in Devon, with a second in Shropshire earlier this year.
