We are the brothers Dimitri & Panajotis Mintzas living in the Netherlands with Greek roots. Our family comes from the south of the Peloponnese, where they have been producing top quality organic olive oil and honey in the most authentic, pure and natural way for decades. Every year we look forward to helping our family with the harvest.
ORGANIC OLIVE OIL
Our organic olive oil with very low acidity of 0.1%-0.3% is made from the Koroneiki olive. These olives grow on our own olive trees and those of our local friends in the area of Kalamata (Peloponnese). This region with millions of olive trees is considered the most important olive growing area in Greece. The Koroneiki olive is also called the King of olives, because this variety contains the most polyphenols (antioxidants) compared to all other olive varieties. This is why the Koroneiki olive oil is among the best in the world.
HIGH QUALITY HONEY
Our hives are located in the Parnonas Mountains (Peloponnese). The quality of the honey from this area is considered one of the best in the world, due to the unlimited summer sun, the biodiversity and the rich variety of Greek flora, including more than 850 plant, flower and tree species found nowhere else in the world . This rich beekeeping flora enables the bees to create honey with various rich ingredients. Our honey is rich in carbohydrates, proteins, amino acids, enzymes and vitamin B. The honey is a source of energy, vitality and has an antioxidant and anti-aging effect. These properties make an important contribution to health protection.
UNIQUE TASTE EXPERIENCE
We would like you to enjoy these delicious, natural and unprocessed products that are authentically made with lots of love, craftsmanship and passion by our family in Greece.
