KEEPING THE TRADITION ALIVE ~ GREEK GOLDEN OLIVE TREE

KEEPING THE TRADITION ALIVE ~ GREEK GOLDEN OLIVE TREE

Olives and olive oil, an integral part of Greek nature.

The Greeks were first that cultivated the olive tree for its precious products, olives and olive oil. The olive tree, that harmoniously ties up with the Greek landscape and the temperament of its residents, sculptured from Mediterranean sun and the Aegean Sea winds, and always existed an endless source of inspiration for the Greek spirit and soul.

A symbol of social and religious values, progress, peace, prosperity, prudence and fame.

DID YOU KNOW GREEKS ARE KNOWN FOR THEIR OLIVE OIL?

DID YOU KNOW GREEKS ARE KNOWN FOR THEIR OLIVE OIL?

It's no wonder the Greeks are known for their olive oil. Fossilized olive leaves believed to be from 50,000 to 60,000 years old have been found on the Greek islands of the Aegean. The systematic cultivation of olives trees is said to have begun on the island of Crete in Neolithic times. This tells you that Greek ties to the olive tree run very deep indeed.

In fact, Greece is one of the top three olive oil-producing countries in the world, and Greek olive oil is indisputably the finest.

But before you go grab the first bottle or tin you find off the market shelf, here are a few things to consider. All oil — especially Greek olive oil — is not created equally.
