The quality secret of olive oil is hidden in its flavour.

Every year, our specialized personnel selects, among hundreds of samples from all over Greece, those with the exceptional “full” flavor, ideal for our bottling.

Our extended purchase network includes olive oil mills that adopt traditional production methods and simultaneously meet the contemporary demands for food hygiene and safety.

We carry out more than 5.000 laboratory tests per year, in order to be able to certify the high standards for our olive oil: low acidity, freshness and full taste.

Our long lasting expertise in olive oil enables us to guarantee constant and superior quality throughout the year, as well as reliability in the delivery of our products.

Olive oil, an integral part of the Greek diet

Olive oil and olives have always been an integral part of Greek life and nutrition. The olive oil production in Greece dates back to 4000 B.C., since an ancient olive mill of that age was discovered during excavations in Methana, Peloponnese.

Greece is the third olive oil producing country in the world, but ranks first by 80% in the percentage of extra virgin olive oil over the total Greek olive oil production, while the respective rate in Italy is 50% and in Spain 20%.

The key characteristics of an extra virgin olive oil, namely low acidity, taste, flavor and color, are influenced by many factors, which compose and define its quality.

Greece ranks first in the world in the extra virgin olive oil production

Process

Our production and bottling processes consist of

1-Selection of raw material:

A large number of samples are received every day at our chemical laboratories. Once these samples pass a first test of taste and flavour, they are further analyzed chemically (for acidity, purity, absence of pesticides etc.) and organoleptically (for fruity taste, intensity, balance etc).

2-Storage:

In order to maintain its particular analytical and organoleptic characteristics, each category of olive oil has to be separately stored, at the same time securing the traceability procedures.

3-Filtration – Polishing:

The filtration and polishing, which take place just before bottling, are necessary for the longer conservation of the olive oil, by eliminating moisture and impurities (pieces of olive), while at the same time its nutrients and freshness remain intact.

4-Bottling:

The bottling process is carried out in our state of the art filling lines, with total capacity of 24.000 liters / hour. The labeling and carton filling equipment guarantee the high quality of the final product appearance.

5-Quality Control

Each year, our scientific personnel, also certified for olive oil tasting (panel test), performs thousands of tests for monitoring, evaluating and controlling the quality of our olive oil at all stages of the production process.
