Dear Olivine, what happened to the sweet fragrance ingredient that made the pink Jade soap so refreshing that it would fill up the entire bathroom with a sweet aroma. 😔
Morning. When are we going to get Buttercup in the shops. We are desperate
Good day. Please can you tell me why only CASH is being accepted at your place for Buttercup?

Do you love BAKED BEANS on TOAST? Many people do, and it's almost a standard breakfast in many a hotel and restaurant. Well, here's an Indian way of doing it.



Which stove has given you the best cooking experience?

Paraffin (or kerosene) stoves are cheap to operate and are very energy/fuel. Paraffin is also very cheap to buy. The stoves are simply constructed and require little to no maintenance.

Gas stoves (LPG) provide instant heat on ignition, so you get cooking right away, thus reducing your waiting time. The ease of temperature control also gives you flexibility in cooking .

Electric plates take time to heat and cool down, but have a modestly less fire or gas leak hazard. They are also easy to keep clean and tidy.

Open fire cooking is the oldest form of cooking available, but very cheap, however there is plenty of heat loss and little heat control options available.



Whether you're frying pancakes, flapjacks, eggs, bacon, chicken, sausages, pizza, chips... whatever it is you're going to fry today, Olivine will make it, a HAPPY FRYDAY!


What is your favourite tomato product?

A. Tomato Juice
B. Tomato Sauce
C. Tomato Puree
D. Whole Peeled Tomatoes

Next week, we'll be letting you know why you need to eat more tomatoes!


Having bacon & eggs for breakfast? Perhaps a birthday party tomorrow and you need extra hands (and extra rice, spaghetti, fried chicken, vegetable salad....), whether you're going to have a busy, or a lazy weekend.... whatever you decide to cook.... cook it better, with Olivine!
