If there was ever a day to celebrate, it's got to be 1st June - World Olive Day!

As mighty big olive fans, it only seems fitting that we provide you with some fun facts on these delicious, mouth-watering morsels. 

Did you know? 

- An olive is a fruit, not a vegetable.
- The average age of an olive tree is between 300-600 years.
- The largest type of an olive is called a Donkey olive.
