About Olive My Pickle


We're Shai and Charlotte, co-founders here at Olive My Pickle.

Together with our team, we’re on a mission to spread awareness about the power of fermented foods to heal the gut!

Since 2010 we've been honing our small batch fermentation skills and today we ship nationwide, so access to real fermented foods is no longer an obstacle.

Our customer community is maintaining their Best Gut Ever, while saving energy for the one thing that matters most: more screen time.

Just kidding. It's family of course.

Quality time with family is the most important thing and yes, front door delivery of fermented food gives you a little more of that.

Peace & Pickles, Shai and Charlotte



How long has Olive My Pickle been around?

Since 2010, we’ve been selling pickles, olives and kraut, bulk-style out of barrels at local farmer’s market here in Florida. For several years we were exclusively a Saturday farmers market business. 

Around 2018 we decided to get serious about ecommerce, and spent the next couple years making every mistake imaginable in that regard. 

When the world changed in 2020, we were well positioned to meet the overnight increased demand for all-things-online, which included fermented foods. We haven’t looked back since.  

How’d you get started in the pickle business?

Told by our co-founder Shai, “I grew up in Israel making pickles in my grandmother’s kitchen. Years later, living in the US and homesick, I made my first batch of pickles to reconnect with the smells and tastes of home. That was the start."

To read the full story of our early days, read the article How Olive My Pickle Came to Be.”

How’d you come up with the name Olive My Pickle?

Told by Charlotte, co-founder: “I’ve always understood that OMP exists as a personality with desires and that it wants to be expressed in the world. The name? I can’t take credit for coming up with it. The name was whispered into my imagination when Olive My Pickle introduced itself to me for the first time.”

Why do you do this?

In widespread health and wellness culture, the movement to reclaim our health is well underway.

Although corporate greed has been sucking the literal life out of food at the steepest possible cost to humanity, posterity, our planet and its creatures, there is hope: The people are awake and we're taking back our power.

The leaders of the movement are the doctors, researchers, functional medicine specialists, nutritionists, dietitians and journalists that do the research, author the books and gather the communities to address the health crisis in our country.

The knowledge they provide, when applied by you and me translates into true power to transform. Add to that our body’s ability to heal itself and this means we can recover our wellness, our vibrancy and our full human potential.

We each become leaders in the movement while on our own healing journeys. We teach our kids, we share our knowledge with those we love and we continue to optimize our personal health at greater and deeper levels. In doing so we reset the health trajectory for future generations.

What’s Olive My Pickle’s role?

Ours is a support role. Fermented foods are universally prescribed by health movement leaders as a fundamental part of daily healthful eating. A food that heals.

  • As small batch fermenters, our job is to make good, true, straight-forward products.
  • As a company, we want to make these foods accessible and affordable to as many people as possible.
  • As a brand with a voice, we want to start relevant conversations that attract and guide people to understand fermented foods, to eat them daily and love them for life.

What’s the #1 most important thing at OMP?

To keep having fun.

Fun is a thrive state where we're laughing and connecting and not taking ourselves or this too seriously.  It means we’re loving each other, loving our customers, loving the food we make and loving life.

Good fun is the expression of love in the here and now.

And love can heal. It has that in common with fermented foods.
