Since 2002, we’ve supplied food manufacturers in the UK and Ireland with a diverse range of Mediterranean and Middle East-inspired ingredients.
We supply blue chip customers who manufacture ready-to-eat foods for all major retailers including Marks and Spencer’s, Waitrose, Sainsbury’s, Tesco, ASDA, Co-Op and Morrison’s.
Our pestos, pastes, olives, antipasti, grains, vinegars and oils are secret ingredients in all sorts of foods. We pop up all over the supermarket: baked goods, sandwiches, salads, ready meals, soups and sauces and even cheese!
We also supply manufacturers who produce for the food service industry.
We produce most of these ingredients ourselves – 76% at the last count – in our high care BRC accredited factory. In 2019, we achieved BRC AA+, the highest possible score from the British Retail Consortium, which means an inspector can drop by unannounced, at time they want.
We purchase our raw materials from accredited producers across the world.
We use factory friendly packaging, ranging from small tubs up to large buckets and bag-in-box.
At Belazu we don’t pasteurise our olives. This means we can offer olives with better colour, texture & flavour. A better tasting experience all round.

Belazu has had a partnership with our Spanish oil supplier for nearly 20 years – they not only produce great quality regional oils, but also manage Belazu’s own groves in Catalonia.
Great every day cooking oils from Spain.
- 35% Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Belazu’s balsamic vinegar is produced by an owner-managed company just outside Modena, Italy. Made from cooked grape must and red wine vinegar, it is matured in wooden barrels made from oak, chestnut, cherry, juniper and mulberry. During maturation, the vinegar reduces through evaporation which concentrates the flavours and increases viscosity.
Our single varietal vinegars have a wonderfully balanced flavour – a result of the residual sweetness of the grape juice not being overpowered during the acetification process.
Our mustards are made by an independent producer in Reims, France. They are preservative-free and classified ‘extra hot’ by the French.
